I saw my father's big changes these years.

My father has double-personality. It means he has a variety of faces outside different from those at home.

Before his age of 40, he hung around with his friends almost every day. I could hardly see him when I was young. In my memory, my school tuition fees, my living expenses, and the house rents were all borne by my mom. My mom worked pretty hard in order to meet up all these expenditures.

My dad never paid a penny. His money mostly flowed away on his friends' and his own entertainments, inclusive of drinking, eating, singing, and gambling, etc. Moreover, his friends often borrowed money from him without refunding. So everyone liked making friends with him due to his generousity.

Sounds like he was very rich, hah? Actually it was not true. My dad had some money because he sold the real estates that my grandfather gave him. At first, we thought he'd use the money to buy a new house for us. Cause having already lived in my grandfather’s house for over 7 years, we thought of moving out for an independent life.

My grandpa's house was located in a small town of Tainan. As it was far away from the city, my mom wanted to move to the downtown area. So finally we decided to move to Kaohsiung and lived with my aunt temporarily.

But my dad diverted the money to invest in the stock market instead of buying a house. Unfortunately the stock market siutation slided all the way down during those times. My dad operated mostly in short-term transactions, so he paid too much handling charges on frequent buy-and-sell turnovers. Consequently, he lost most of his money in those speculative deals, and our dream to buy a new house was just like a bubble burst by my dad.

But he never learned his lessons. He thought of doing small business after failing in the stock market. Thus, he borrowed money from a relative and used it to rent a place and open a small cafeteria. Although his cooking wasn't bad, and running a business wasn't as easy as he thought. Lacking professional cooking experiences, he exhausted all the working capital and had to close his cafetaria shop 3 months later.

After that failure, my dad disappeared, and I could not know why he had to disappear and where he had gone.

I had never seen him throughout my junior high school ages. I almost forgot I still had a dad. I felt he abandoned us, leaving his 3 kids to be raised by his wife alone. I didn't know how my mom had managed to survive the hard time. All I could say was, "Thanks, Mom, I can never forget what you have done for us."

Fortunately, my dad still got some conscience. He picked us up after disappearing for 3 years, and we went northward to Taoyuan. He rent a store in the market to sell fruit. I felt that was great because he used to be a fruit farmer for years, selling fruit in the wholesale market. So he was specialized in fruit. I was so glad he finally found the job that fit him and settled down his drifting heart.

Although my dad still has no enough money to buy a house for us now, we live a happier life than ever. We have lived this way in a rented small apartment for over 10 years. That's ok; at least, my Dad has changed a lot, trying to become a good man. I think that's just enough. It doesn't matter how poor he is, as long as he treats us by his true heart. That would be the best fortune I have ever had.

On Aug. 1st, I went to Yi-Lan International Folklore & Folkgame Festival with my friend. This was my first time being to Yi-Lan. At first, I was filled with exciting mood because I went out with Jack who liked me a lot. I thought we'd have a wonderful day.

But I was wrong, he was not as a nice person as I thought. His behavior was a little bit strange. Guess what? On that day when we got on the train, he bought newspaper and kept on staring at newspaper all the times on our way to Yi-Lan. I felt bored and started talking to him. I asked him if he wanted to listen to music or to eat something, but he just said no. Afterwards, he fell asleep when he became tired...

I didn't understand what he thought. He told his friends he liked me a lot and his mind would never change. And he often gave me a call to express his concerns. Sounded very thoughtful, wasn't it? But when we went out together, he changed to someone else. He became silent and solemn instead of being humorous and easygoing. That way, I even didn't know how to get along with him.

He also wasn't as considerate as I thought. You know, I used to carry a lot of girl's stuffs when I traveled far away from home. On that day, I brought a backpack and a handbag while Jack only took a shoulder bag. But he never gave me a hand carrying any of my bags. In my thinking, a gentleman wasn't supposed to be like that…

Finally we arrived at the Tungshan River Water Park, and I was so excited even if the sun was burning hot. I suggested we look around the park first and play the watering equipments later when the sunlight wasn't so strong. But he didn't want to walk; he said he'd sweat if he walked under the sun, so he just wanted to find a cool place to relax…

Ok, I followed his lead. We just stayed at a cool corner for about 3 hours talking on some boring topics, and ate lunch bought from convenience store.

I couldn't stand anymore. This was my first time coming here, and I should have had a lot of fun, and not have sat at the same place wasting my time…

Maybe Jack felt I wasn't happy, so we started playing all the games and watching the exhibitions after wasting 3 hours. Then we took a few photos before ending up our trip…

For me, this trip was really miserable for I had never had a trip like this before. I wouldn't go out with Jack again. I wrote a long mail to tell Jack we were not two of a kind. And our relationship was over after that trip…

Have you ever had a terrible trip just like mine??

I already 27, but I only made boyfriend once when I studied in the university.
After graduating, I’v never made any boyfriends…you ask my why??
Cause I never meet right person in the right time, and I guess the main reasons have two... one reason is, I don’t have chances, my job is CSR (customer service representative), most of coworkers around me are women, just fews are men. But you know, they look so so , nothing attract me…

And another reason is, I live far away from office, I commute from Taoyuan to Taipei everyday. I need to spend 2 hours on the transportation. So when I end up my job, I always hurry to catch the train. That's why I don’t have any social activities, and no opportunity to meet good men..

I think my life is white and black, very monotonous, I fed up with this life, and decide to change. I always envy couples when the special days are coming, ( like Valentine’s Day, Christmas’ Day). the couples look so lovely, but I only myself, that’ll let me want to cry....

I think it’s time to make a boyfriend, I'll try to go out, join all kinds of activites, to find the right person has the same interests with me. I hope my man is humorous, easygoing, responsible and have a good job. Meanwhile, he need to kindness and really love me. I think face-look isn't so important, cause face will be change pass by time....

Please give me the best wishes, and if you have friends still single and have above mentioned good qualities, you can also introduce them to me, tks first...

Even though I’m not very beauty, but I think I'm still a charming girl…
Why did I say that?? Cause everyone said l look so dark recently, they asked did I exercise much? My coworkers, my relatives, my friends, even the doctor said I look darker than before…My uncle laugh at me, he said I even look darker than my brother, if I got darkest, I wouldn't made any boyfriends…
Ok ok , I heard everybody’s words, but did you want to know why I become so dark??

Cause I walk from 松山車站 to 內湖 office every morning, and continue about 2 years. I think that’s a good way to keep exercise during work period, and I also can save bus fee… my coworkers they hardly ever exercise, so they’re getting fat, I don’t want to like them, become fatness…
But walking in the morning is always sweating, the sun is burning hot…

I used to walk without taking umbrella, and I always laught at girls who taking umbrella. In my memory, only grandma will take umbrella when they go out…..And I love outdoor activites, I like go to watering amusement park, like 八仙,I enjoy the watering equipment and really have fun…It’s hurt your skin when you expose under the sun in the noon, but at that moment, I didn’t think too much...

Now my skin tone looks like chocolate, I fed up with everyone said I black, from right now, I talk umbrella when I walk to office, and use white-skin produces, even when i join outdoor activites, I’ll choose the afternoon time, i don't want the UV light to injury my skin again. No sun, no hurt…

If you guys have any good advices to let my skin looks lighter, pls feel free to tell me, tks a lot
