We didn't really want to repeat what had happened to John here. We all probably knew, John has only got a last minute meeting cancellation by the chief of Taiwanese Executive Yuan, a lecture on how expensive it is to operate business in this Village, and was forced to listen to Donald Tsang, Please Die.
We thought that John and the government of this Village would just try their best to make us forget about all these shits. But not this time. Last Sunday, a blog post by John came in my RSS reader. As you might expect, the post naturally begins with some lies about how successful the trip was, but what I found most interesting is that John actually talked about the gifts he brought for the islanders and those he got from them.
Trained in architecture, John carefully chose some
John went on talking about other gifts he brought over, and they're not very interesting. However, among all the people he met in those four days, John only mentioned about the gifts he got from Jason Hu, the obscure mayor of Taichung. Now, what fine gifts did John get in return? Some mouth watering Taiwanese pastries
I don't know if it's a pwnage again. I have no idea why John wanted to talk about these in his blog at all. But at least he got a shaved ice dessert half the size of a dining table. I heard it's the highest level of diplomatic courtesy Villagers can get in Taiwan.
