What about food from Vietnam? There has been an insurgence of cuisines from Vietnam and Thailand in the recent years. It’s unclear to me exactly why that is but this trend appears to follow the number of the brides the Taiwanese men import from Vietnam and Thailand. Ok, I know I sounded a bit judgemental just now. To be a tad less biased, I should also mention that there seems to be an insurgence of western cuisines with the number of Taiwanese women who married white men and brought them back home. Aha, now I am just discriminating everyone Taiwanese regardless of gender or their spousal choice. Who am I to judge other people’s happiness? This is globalization where supply meets demand. Love comes in all different forms.
