My Childhood Memory

When I was little, our family would go to Taiwan every summer. We went there because my mom’s family lives there. I’m half Taiwanese. We had great times and also bad times.

The fun parts were eating the food, going to night markets, and getting to relax from school. Night markets is an area of shops, resturaunts, convenience stores, markets, etc. where you go there at night. We usually went there every night. I also liked going on the underground subways. Too bad we don’t have any of those here.

One time my aunt took my sister and me to learn Chinese. But she got mixed up with the English so we were in the English class. It was so awkward. We were learning the alphabet again!

The main problem was the heat. In Taiwan the heat and humidity is unbearable. It made us all in a bad mood whenever got got into a burning hot cat that was sitting in the parking lot for 2 hours. I remember we would go into a convenience store just for the AC. My aunt would send me to an art school and I did not like it very much. It was so boring there. They were learning about stuff I already learned. After class she would bring us dumplings that was really good!

Over all, my childhood memories were filled with happy and sad moments.

    The night markets sound like great fun! In some ways, they remind me of the underground shopping centers in Kobe, Japan…both very different shopping experiences than what we have here in Austin.
