If you are like me wondering what is Rody, here’s a history about Rody and the evolvement of its name. And if you are like me wondering what is Rody, here’s the answer: it’s a small horse. Not a pony, nor a lama, and it’s from Italy. It’s a toy for kiddo to jump around the house and give parents a peace of serene while they keep themselves busy. Can train kid how to balance, how to ride horse, and comes with various colors. I guess I skip this part of my childhood as I have completely ZERO memory of this horse. This year march the Italian horse 30th birthday. The exhibition was designed as the theme of circus in displaying Rody everywhere, don’t forget to look above. Kills lots of memory cards for parents with their kids giggling, hopping, and posing around for pictures. There’s even a merry-go-around outside of the venue for people to ride on to the Year of the Horse.

Happy Chinese New Year to all! We are welcoming this year with the Year of the Horse!
This is our New Year’s Eve meal with the family, feeling scrumptious!
We can’t help but sharing to all, how our Mom is the best cook in the world (because her daughter and son say so), and she really puts effort in making all New Year food from scratch.
It had been a busy 2 weeks for us helping Mom buying ingredients and doing food preparation.
Our grandpa comes from a village besides Shanghai, which is now the suburb of the big Shanghai, where the area is enrich with food due to its nice weather. This is what we were having last night-extravagent homemade food all by Mom of traditional Shanghainese dishes!
Mom has prepared this soup for a week! There is a big chicken, dumpling with skin made from egg wrap, meatball, bamboo shoot, and Chinese onions in it.
1st day- chicken bone and chicken feet

First travel post would be introducing about the place I grow up!
Here are some notes, will share more in the days to come.
*Official languages- Mandarin Chinese(mainly), Taiwanese(mainly), Hakka, Aboriginal languages
**FAQ: What are the differences between: Mandarin & Chinese?
Pretty much they are all the same, as in general we say we are Chinese, we speak Chinese and Mandarin=Chinese.
Chinese is the BIG word term as English is the BIG word term.
If you really want to go inward and realize there are Chinese from China, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan…then we say we are Taiwanese.
Same in language in general we all speak: Chinese (Pǔtōnghuà) but has different accent as in Shanghai, Beijing (they twirl their tongue more) and other regions as there are: American English x British accent x Australian accent.
Then to dialect: There is Cantonese (Hong Kong), Taiwanese (from Hokkien region in China, Taiwanese ancestor mostly from there), Hakka (from Guandong region in China, another part of Taiwanese ancestor mostly from there), and native aboriginal.
**** Taiwanese all know how to speaks English, we all learned, but some people may not be that fluent as not being used as an official language (doesn’t have enough practice), however Taiwanese are very friendly in using gestures or any other ways to let you understand what they are trying to say, no worries 😉
3. What kind of people they are: Taiwanese
*Same with language.
In America, though your ancestors may from other where else, but you’ll say I am American, like we say we are Taiwanese.
4. What kind of letters we write: Traditional Chinese
*** FAQ: Traditional Chinese vs Simplified Chinese.
Simplified Chinese is the mostly used in world now as people learned to write since the strokes of characters is much easier, however can’t trace the origin of how the letters evolve. Traditional Chinese can since it’s the same as it is in 5,000 years ago.
a. moon 月 (yueiˋ) b. wood 木 (muˋ) c. fire 火 (huohˇ)
d. fish 魚 (yuˊ) e. turtle 龜 (guei) ; turtle in simplified Chinese 龟
f. 囧 (juongˇ)–its just a facial expression with no meanings, hahahaha
5. What is the capital of Taiwan: Taipei
6. How long does it take from flying from North America: 11~12 hrs from LAX (direct flight); Europe: 15hrs from London (direct flight) , 14hrs from Paris (direct flight)
Taiwan people are being said: the most friendliest country as many has traveled.
