In Hong Kong and beyond, China moves to consolidate position of strength as country emerges from pandemic

五千年以來,中國曾經有過太多次的朝代更替和大大小小的內亂。神州大地分分合合,合合分分,可是,少者數年,多則百載,最終都是以戰亂開始,以武力統一而結束。臺灣問題無可否認的是現代的中國人必需面對的一個棘手的問題。

我生逢其時,適逢其會,先在臺灣,後在美國,隨後在中國,現在又回到臺灣看這百年辛酸歷史的變遷,政經局勢的變化,中國急起直追的崛起,臺灣苦悶無助的迷失,心中難免有無限的感慨和萬般的無奈。

臺灣有些激進分子想要獨立,可是理智的臺灣人民到民進黨的當權者都知道這是一步絕望的死棋。中國日漸強大,臺灣日漸衰弱,美國施予臺灣的小惠只是它拿來抵制中國的籌碼。這隻美國大腿被臺灣緊緊的抱到,死不肯放。美國無信,無義,無原則,誰知道到頭來會不會是一場空歡喜呢?

是戰?是和?是福?是禍?是憂?是喜?是對還是錯呢?

The coronavirus crisis in Taiwan has mostly been under controlled by government’s early and decisive actions. Social distancing, proper personal protection, strict quarantine measures and tireless tracking through personal contacts and other means have kept the virus case count at 440 with 366 releases and 6 deaths. As of today, 05/10/2020, it has been 28 days in a row without an indigenous case in Taiwan.

With that reassuring backdrop, we have come out of our semi quarantine and on this mother’s day travelled to Taipei to enjoy a quiet afternoon at Together Cafe at Dong Meng Market (東門商圈) in the Daan District (大安區)。

This is our second time here and we really liked it. Together serves great coffee, tasty bites, wonderful teas, top quality desserts and various Italian meals and sandwiches. The interior is clean and cozy with very clean bathroom in the back. It offers baskets to keep your bags by your side. The young girl who helps us to decide what to order is patient, personal and friendly.

We choose an order of afternoon tea which includes a cup of coffee or your selection of tea and a dessert. It isn’t cheap but it is nice and very relaxing.

Afternoon tea combo: Coffee and lemon tart.
