Happy Mother's Day


When I was in junior high in Taiwan I attended this math class every Wednesday after school. I never really liked math - I did it so I could get into one of the best senior high schools.

Back then we didn't have a second car. This place was too far away for me to walk to after school and I didn't know how to ride a bike. So every Wednesday, my mom would ride me to this class on a bike. The students usually got there at around 7pm, and we needed to answer all kinds of math problems correctly before we could leave. Most of the time I didn't get to leave until after 11pm, and my mom would be downstairs waiting for me to ride me home.

My point is, this is one of my favorite memories with my mom. We'd talk about everything on our way back home on that old, old bike, and when the hill was too steep, we'd get off of the bike and walk. On our way there were those be narrow, quiet roads, that crowded night market, the first blockbuster in Taipei and that park where I learned how to roller skate.

When I was 13 and was in school from 7am to 6pm and had to do math from 7pm to 11pm, what's better than ending a day biking home with my mom and stopping somewhere for mid-night snacks?

My mom is the biggest fan of my blog so I would like to dedicate this post to her.

I really love you. Happy Mother's Day.
