This is my personal Taiwan blog. I discuss topics that I find interesting and hope that you find them interesting as well.

I have been living in Taiwan for over four years. I came here in 2018 to study Mandarin at NCKU for two months during the summer. After a month I decided I didn’t want to leave and found a job so I could stay permanently.

If there is anything you would like me to cover, please feel free to contact me.
