Did you know the most commonly used greeting between people in Taiwan is “Have you eaten?”- read as “Chī fàn le ma?” People in Taiwan are passionate about food. They will wait for hours in front a bakery for freshly baked pineapple cakes. There is a nap time after lunch every day at school – even in high school!
Taiwan’s young people do indeed think about small blessings, but that is in the context of the big picture. We want blessings to include everything and everyone — people from far away, people of various skin colours who speak different languages, those who are yet to be born, the leopard cat and white dolphin, even the trees along the road and rivers in the valleys.
