The trip to Taiwan is booked (I should have started a Go Fund Me for this!!) and we are excited to hit the skies. Well i Little less excited since one leg is a 14 hr flight... with a BABY!
I will apologize in advance of takeoff to the surrounding 5 rows.
Have only been out of the country twice - once with Dave Martin (canada of course) and once on a cruise but i do not really count that... I am told there is a great chance that taiwan living is VERY likable... soooo.... maybe i will return lol #taiwan#traveling#familytrip#flights#longwayfromhome#faraway#taiwanesewife#mywifeshome#asianwife#asia
The bird 💩 was NOT good luck as advertised. We bought 3 types of lottery tickets and all 3 were losers. I thought this rock, paper, ✂ scratch-off looked fun, but no 🎲!! Cheaterzzz! BTW, I feel like Taiwanese people are rock paper scissors fanatics. Correction: scissor, paper, stone fanatics. I literally, actually, truly see some version of this freaking game EVERY day--to settle ties, as entertainment, as part of an elaborate chant....but then again, my perception is shaped by the company I keep- my language exchange partners are typically under 7 y/o. #taiwanesewife#taiwanesestuff#amwf#rockpaperscissors#lotteryfail#scratchoff#cheaters#badluck#birdpoopisnotgoodluck
We went to Liuchiu island this weekend. Driving around the island on our rented scooters, we passed a traditional Taiwanese opera. I was fascinated that the theatre was set up on the street such that passing mopeds had to cross in between the theater and the crowd to order to get by. No one minded and the actors kept right on going and the crowd kept right on laughing. So Taiwanese! #sotaiwanese#thisistaiwan#lovetaiwan#taiwaneseopera#liuchiu#liuchiuisland#Taiwanesewife#amwf
Don't get sick of us! Sorry to inundate you so much in one day....when I'm at Mandarin language events I'm understandably idle and instagram a lot! Today we went to Miami for the farewell party of a man who is essentially a Taiwanese ambassador, though of course because of the Chinese government he doesn't get to be called that. Kriss has our pic with him. There was a 9 course meal. And it was so cute and random that someone made little year of the dog tags and tied them onto bags of chips!! I took home all the abandoned ones to give to my second graders as prizes. Oh, and I ate some jellyfish. #iposttoomuch#overkill#eatingjellyfish#yearofthedog#amwfcouples#Taiwanese#Taiwanese#taiwanesewife#iatejellyfish#cantonesefood#idontspeakmandarin
Excited to find this book at the library today. It's called "Tales of the Taiwanese" retold by Gary Marvin Davison. It has a brief history of Taiwan in the forward and then folktales divided into different categories. I want to read one every night w my husband. Knowing him, he'll scoff that he never heard them before! But I want to know these things bc one days we'll be raising little Taiwanese babies who will learn these tales too. I want to know more than "journey to the west" (sorry it's boring) #taiwanesewife#taiwaneselife#taiwanreppin#taiwanstyle#beachreading#talesfromthetaiwanese#garymarvindavison
