Well, I don't usually talk about politics on this weblog, especially concerning a place that I no longer lives in. But the presidential election yesterday is probably one of the most important election in the recent decades, so I started refreshing my browser every few minutes in the evening to check the real time result published on Yahoo TW. Talked to my dad in Taiwan on the phone, and he said he has already closed his clinics in the afternoon as everyone is staying at home watching the TV for the latest result. Green and Blue have been virtually 50/50 all the way through. And at the end, Chen Shui-Bian with less than 30,000 votes ahead won the election...

And my parents are seriously moving back to Australia for good...


Just one wondering. It seems wearing old-fashion sports jacket and a baseball cap seems to be "in" and "fashionable" thing for the politicians in Taiwan. Any idea?
