foodmaniac2003;4268882If someone Taiwanese mentions Taiwan, be sure to add "Isn't that a part of China?"

It's nice to be Chinese. :)

Yeah, I'm rather curious as to know whether my grandmother aligned herself with the Republic of China or with the People's Republic. If she was a Chiang Kai-Shek follower, might explain why she was an expatriot in Thailand.

Ah well, I guess I'll never know my father's family history.

I have two friends from Taiwan. If I ever asked them that, they would probably not speak to me for a month. And that's a big deal, seeing as I see one of them pretty much every single day.

huh. My grandparents decided to stay in China, and then they had two sons and a daughter. The eldest son was sent off to a rural community as part of the Industrial revolution, which the youngest son (my father) missed out on by six months (lucky him; my uncle just died last year from Hepatitis B contracted because of this).

I have a cousin, who after graduating from VMI in 2005, instructed English at the Republic of China Military Academy. He can tell you most Taiwanese very much feel that they are not part of mainland China. The aboriginal Taiwanese, in particular.
