Taiwan-my home

Filed under: Uncategorized — ifongphoto @ 6:27 pm

It is 2 a.m, and I am awake during this odd hour. Between sleep, I thought I was still in Taiwan, and I could still heard my mother’s voice. I visited my mother for few weeks, and know that no matter how old I am and how many years I have been away, I am still like a small child needing my mother’s comfort. Taiwan is still loud and crowded, with a high density of people, vivid culture, and incredibly good food. The whole country is so alive.  I had chances to visit a lot of my relatives in different partsof Taiwan and spent a lot of time listening, talking and sharing  how time changed everyone.   Also I laughed, every few minutes I laughed hard. Thanks to my younger sister, she always has a gift to make me laugh so hard.  I am loved so much by so many people, and all of that makes me truly the person I am now. Thank you mother for being a such kind, loving, strong mother that has always held my hand and walked me though a lot of difficult times. I am packed full of energy from Taiwan and ready for this wonderful year with heart!



  1. Thank you so much for sharing your personal trip, Ifong! You chronicled it so beautifully, it looks like an amazing and vivid place to call home. I love the family portrait at the end… your husband is so tall! You both are adorable. I’m glad you had such a great trip, and we’re glad to welcome you back to Spokane! We missed you! 🙂

  2. I loved learning about your family and seeing all the beautiful images of Taiwan. Thank you so much for sharing your family and home with us. It is really a blessing that Jason and your children were able to be there with you. You are right, when we are around our momma’s are jewels. Hope to see you soon.

  4. Thank you for the amazing images of your trip! It reminded me so much of my trip to Vietnam a few years back. The markets, the views and the hard working people definitely came across. Your family is beautiful and you looked so happy in the last shot. You and your sister look so much alike! Thanks again for sharing!

  8. Ifong, you have such a talent for capturing the soul of whatever you snap a photo of. The colors seem alive in your pictures. And you with your family is so touching to see. We all know you can do amazing things with a camera, and that you are truly gifted. But these pictures seem to be so much more special. It is such a personal part of your life, and we are all so lucky to be able to share in a little piece of that with you. Amazing and beautiful seem like understatements. Breathtaking is the only thing that comes to mind.
