I’ve been meaning to write a book review of 我的青春、我的FORMOSA, it’s long overdue, and I don’t despair of publishing it… before the end of the year ;). In this book, I learned a few interesting facts about Taiwan, one of them being the controversial introduction of TAIWAN on the cover of the then
Taiwanese REPUBLIC OF CHINA passport. This happened actually fairly recently, in 2002, under President Chen Shui-Bian 陳水扁.
This leaves me wondering, will the idea of removing REPUBLIC OF CHINA be brought to the table some day? Hence, making it less confusing (especially to foreigners), and asserting Taiwan as a country in its own right. Likely not, but it’d sure make for a fine April Fool’s Day joke, don’t you think? 😈
