Hello,

As for considering myself Taiwanese or Chinese.
My wife is Chinese while my child speaks Mandarin Chinese(Beijinghua), English, and
Taiwanese(Minnanhua). As for seeing myself as Taiwanese or Chinese I'm still trying to
work out what those terms mean. For example does Taiwanese mean only Minnan speaking
peoples, or does it include the Hakkanese, and/or First Nations (Aboriginal peoples).
For
example are British people really European? What does European mean? Does the term
British include Welsh, Scots and English? I am heavily influenced by Taiwan's cultures
since I have lived here for 9 years. It has become my home and therefore I have a
strong
personal connection with it.

Best regards,
Mark Munsterhjelm
