她本來可以在台灣活得比較好一點。

One of my sister-in-laws, who is the elder sister to my wife, passed away yesterday in New Jersey, USA, at 75.  May her rest in peace.    

There is no exception to the rule that all humans are mortal.  All I want to say here is if she and her husband would have lived in Taiwan, not in the States, most likely she could have lived longer, and more importantly, happier.

She married to her husband in 1970 when he was one of top engineers in the first and only computer company in then Taiwan.  Well, I always think supposed he were staying with that company, or in related field of software, he would have been an icon in IT area of Taiwan by now, as long as he kept pace with the new knowledge of computer tech.  Instead, he opted to "resume" studying in America and went to the States again.  This time, he did not really study at school, but start to work without legal residential status or valid working visa.  All my goodness, he had to be like a rolling stone, changing jobs from company to company, moving housings from state to state, until he got the legal status in late 80s due to the pardon granted by Reagon administration.  He did miss his golden time, and so did my sister-in-law who is a woman of clinging vine in kind.

My brother-in-law was born to the family of high-ranking official in KMT, which was trounced by CCP in Mainland in late 40s and later fleed to Taiwan, and it must have deeply felt shaken in confidence after the debacle.  I guess that was one of the main reasons why those KMT losers scrambled for sending their children away to the US in the first place, but not everyone of them had found a paradise in there. 

What a shame!  Again, may her rest in peace.

非法移民,不走正常管道,生活不好怪得了誰?

數十萬過得好好的移民不舉例,此例有何意義?

中國已經大興盛,為何溫哥華仍然擠滿大陸移民?

都是貪官污吏?我遇過許多不是,他們只為了「安心、安全」。

台灣果真安全嗎?令人安心嗎?
