I spent Chinese New Year with Connie's family, which included a whirlwind tour of the city of KaohSiung and the beach at KenDing, thanks to Connie's very kind Uncle. They asked me where I wanted to go before I left Taiwan, I said "Well, I've never been to Kaohsiung", and the next morning we were off!
The pictures at night at the stone tablet were taken at the lighthouse which literally marks the Southern tip of Taiwan! So I have officially now been to both ends of the island! ^_^

Last night I finished my advanced class at Cyberlink, the software company I've been teaching at on Tuesday and Thursday nights for the past three months. While the intermediate class on Tuesday nights were fun, this was the more interesting of the two classes because we had some real conversations about many different topics. Last night we discussed everything from Irisa's unluckiness to Gundam (Arthur and Herry turned out to be fans) and it was a good time. I will miss chatting with Joseph and seeing Mao work so hard as well, as a teacher I appreciated it. Of course, that is only half the class above, the rest were too busy to attend the final session, but that's life at Cyberlink. I wish them and their company the best of luck in the future, and hope they keep studying English! Jia yo!

Last night I finished one of my two classes at Cyberlink, a Taiwanese Software Company famous for it's products like Power DVD. This class was one of the few all-male classes I have taught in my time here, and it was a lot of fun to teach them and spend time helping them to practice English and joke around. I wish them all the best in the future, and hope they will have both happy lives and good careers where they don't need to work so much. (From Left to Right, they are: Jack, Gary, Wayne, Me, Hong-Yi, Neal, Keven, Rain, Jino and Robin.)

Best of luck in the future, ladies and gentlemen, and keep studying English! It will pay off someday!
