Dear Visitors,


The site is taken down as a way to humbly protest the lost of freedom of
speech and Liberty in Taiwan.


I was questioned by a police on the street across NTU campus just because I
aimed my camera to a police on the street. No name tag on his uniform and no
identification for himself. Most importantly, I am not the only one.




If I have told you that Taiwan government works very hard to protect her
I take it back.


If I have told you that Taiwan is a democratic society,
I take it back.


If I have told you that we can always complain the President in public,
I take it back.


If I have told you that Taiwan is a nice place to visit,
I take it back.


Very soon, visiting Taiwan will just experience what you have in Mainland


Please accept my apology for any inconvenience.
