I’ve always had a complicated emotion about coming home.

I do love my homeland. However, due to conflicts in many aspect between me and my family, sometimes I find it hard for me to go home — which happened since I was really little. Close friends around me know it well.

That’s why in the beginning of pandemic, I never thought of the option of coming back at all — even it is a way safer place.

But anyway I’m finally back here — for work, for a rest from exhaustion and depression, for a break.

Same as usual, I’m back, to my homeland, but not home.

Thanks to my artist friends, I could be able to stay in their empty space for quarantine.

Tamsui is a bit far from the city; it rains, it’s humid, but it’s a place with space and good wind also.

Actually my daily life here is not much different from the day in New York. Work, eat, sleep — as simple as that.

The only difference is, I have access here to enjoy the morning view outside of the balcony.


This is 5:45 am, Summer, August, the last day of my quarantine.

There’s a bush and a small rive around this plat at the from side ; however, it’s super windy there. Thus, this is where I recorded — The the small balcony at the back — not much to see, but much quieter.

At least you can hear birds chirping.


Interesting thing is, without (social) media, you would have no idea what happens outside everyday — since everything seems so energetic yet peaceful here everyday.


Expect nothing but embrace everything.
