Centered on Taipei magazine: blog of the month

I am proud to announce That Taiwanxifu has been featured as blog of the month in the April 2014 edition of Centered on Taipei magazine. I positively blushed when I read the lovely description of the Taiwanxifu blog written by budding writer and long time Centered on Taipei contributor, Leat Ahrony, on page 29.

Some readers may know that my ambition is to be a bridge between Chinese and Western cultures. So I was especially chaffed to read Leat’s description of my writing as ‘East meets West. Ying meets Yang.’ Oh, and I liked that she didn’t think I was too scathing of my mother-in-law – our relationship certainly has its ups and downs.

Thank you, loyal readers and new ones, for taking the time to read this blog. There are times when, exhausted from my other roles as career woman and super weekend mum, that I question why I indulge my urge to write. Life would be much easier if my only hobby was watching television, slumping into the sofa when the kids finally go to sleep. It is moments like this when I feel my choice of pastimes is vindicated – I love being a writer!

And now, I would also like your help. Being a believer in aspiration all goal setting, I would like to reach 1,000 Facebook likes by the end of July. Please, please. So if you like the Taiwanxifu blog, please follow me on Facebook. I would really appreciate it.

About taiwanxifu

‘Taiwanxifu’ (pronounced ‘shee foo’) means ‘Taiwan daughter-in-law’ in Chinese and has been my nickname ever since I married my Taiwanese husband, Sam. I love sampling Taiwanese food, even local specialties such as stinky tofu, pigs blood cake and Taipei beef noodle soup with offal. But there are many other options on the menu. Promise!
