What I Ate in Taipei

15 Aug , 2015   Gallery

It’s inherently obvious that I like identifying as a Taiwanese and I like being identified as a Taiwanese – mainly because Taiwanese girls are known to be pretty (though I don’t actually look like a typical one), Taiwanese people are known to be warm and friendly (though I’m irritable and snappy), and Taiwanese food are […]
