It is a heartbreaking news for me to post this blog. The magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck off the coast of Hualien County in eastern Taiwan at 7:58 a.m. on April 3, 2024, having caused 13 dead, 1,133 injured, and six missing so far. Due to the time zone differences, I knew this news from YouTube videos at night of April 2, 2024 in California.

Taiwan and Japan are the two countries have had frequent earthquakes. Taiwanese people have shown to the world their resistance 耐性 and calmness. Hualien County has beautiful scenic natural mountains and waterfalls that attracted millions of people (including foreigners). I have been to the most beautiful scenery site Taroko Gorge (太魯閣國家公園)) when I was about 7 or 8 years old. It was a magnificent natural beauty.

Let me describe some details about this earthquake that I learned from YouTube videos (I was born in Taiwan).

1. The first person died is a female teacher who already escaped out from the tilted building. She waited about 10 minutes to look for her pet cat. She ran inside to save her cat and a aftershock of 6 magnitude struck and she was buried in the falling rocks and died. There are 5 cats died in the same building and that female teacher was the only person died.

2. Japan is the first country to donate money for Taiwan's earthquake because Japanese wanted to appreciate Taiwan's top #1 for 3/11/2011 earthquake, Tsunami disaster.

3. A couple from Singapore with Australia passports are still missing, last saw them from a bus camera that they got off the bus at Taroko Gorge (太魯閣國家公園). The couple's family are coming from Singapore to Taiwan.

4. An Greece man whose wife is a Taiwanese (her father is a former Taiwanese ambassador). This Greece man used a rope to save 12 tourists. He also used the tree branches to write S.O.S. on the ground while they hided in a cave and waited for rescue team.

5. A heroic named "Wilson" (among 8 dogs) has found 3 dead bodies in the falling rocks by waving his tail to warn his master the dead bodies (the drone camera shows). Another found one dead body buried in the falling rock.

6. 7 rescue heroes flew from Turkey and brought 12 drone cameras that can detect body heat. The Turkey rescue team shake hands with Taiwanese rescue team because they met again, when Taiwan sent rescue team to Turkey to help with earthquake in Turkey last time.

7. A Taiwanese family with 5 persons (couple with their 3 ) last seen by tourists about 2 minutes before earthquake have not been found.

Comparing this earthquake with the 7.3 magnitude in Taiwan on Sept 21, 1999 (25 yrs ago) that the total casualty was more than 2,400+ died. This earthquake has 13 people died and less buildings tilted or crashed. Taiwan has learned their lessons and improved a lot from earthquake disaster. Typhoon is another natural disaster in Taiwan.

Special thanks to British pianist, Dr. K to wave a Taiwan's flag in front of a public piano at a train station in London (I've posted a blog previously). Dr. K waved Taiwan's flag to show the world that "Taiwan is a freedom, independent country". CCP has NEVER controlled Taiwan. Taiwan is a clean, non-polluted island country NEVER controlled by communists. Taiwan is a "Democracy" country and we have had "Presidential election" with at least 3 political parties and any Taiwanese citizen over 20 can cast a vote Dr. Lai won the Taiwan presidential election on 1/13/2024 with over 5 millions ballots 選票. Xi was the only candidate with 1,952 votes to continue his 3rd term.

Dr. K piano performance has been interrupted by "Little Pinks"粉紅, the strong courage of Dr. K didn't back down by those "Little Pinks". This incident made Taiwan very famous. Thanks to Dr. Kavanagh. Many thanks to your unwavering support for Taiwan. I hope you will go visit Taiwan to see the hospitality of Taiwanese. Taiwan welcome Dr. K. Taiwan is a peaceful and hardworking and traditional Chinese people. We have freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of press.

Famous movie star, Tom Cruise wears a jacket in “Top Gun: Maverick” is now showing Taiwan’s official flag after an outcry, putting its release in mainland China in jeopardy.
In the trailer of "Top Gun: Maverick," two jacket patches that had originally shown the Japanese and Taiwanese flags (left) appeared to have been swapped out and replaced with two ambiguous symbols in the same color scheme.

An old saying "Seeing is Believing", and "A picture worth a thousand words".

I have recommended on my blogs many times that I have owned TSM, AMD and NVDA which 3 companies' CEO are Taiwanese-Americans. I put my money where my mouth is. Yes, my lowest price of NVDA was purchased at USD 109.21 On 10/13/2022 but I sold all of my holdings at USD 603 per share on 1/22/2024. However, as 2/23/2024 NVDA is as its "All-Time-High" as USD 823.94. All of these have recorded on my stock account. I'm not brag my achievement but I really have confidence of my country - Taiwan. Although I sold all my NVDA, but I am still holding TSM and AMD.

TSM (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturer) is located in Taiwan, so it has "geopolitical" disadvantage from a big but notorious 惡名昭彰的,聲名狼藉的 neighbor country's sober-rattling threat on a daily basis. AMD and NVDA are located in the USA. NVDA CEO, Jensen Huang became a very famous CEO this year. My NVDA total profits is USD 41,233.54. Sold too soon. I will look for another entry point of NVDA under USD 603.

TSM台積電 is the best foundry 晶圆代工 company in the whole world. If you don't know TSMC, please Google it. My lowest price of TSM is USD 74.15 on July 5, 2022. I have lots of TSM shares. TSMC 台積電 opened yesterday, 2-24-2024 in an official ceremony its first semiconductor plant in Japan as part of its ongoing global expansion. The USA also invited TSMC to build manufacturer in Arizona state. The future of TSMC is very good, I'm holding TSM. AMD is located in the USA and a female CEO, Lisa Su came from Taiwan when she was young. My lowest AMD price I purchased is USD 55.01 per share on 12/22/2022. Now trading around USD183 per share.

Take a look my previous blogs that I always buy stocks at low when nobody knows and sold the stock when everyone knows. Such as TSLA I sold all my holdings in Nov 2021 and purchased a Tesla car in Dec 2020.

Know what you own and take profits when everyone crazy about them.

Can you recall the pandemic spread from Wuhan city, China since January 2020 to the world everywhere? How many millions of people died from COVID-19? The economy colossal 巨大的, 龐大的loss from restaurants, airline companies, travel agencies, .... stock market plunged, people were panic, wear facial masks and hand sanitizer for 3 long years. How can we forget and forgive CCP? Why we still keep silence but not ask for compensation from China? Our government should file lawsuit and take legal action against CCP. When a criminal committed crime, we ask for justice to put this murder in jail. But why CCP can get away from their crime responsibility?

Recent months, there are many in China died from new developed virus. The hospital in China crowded with "White Lungs" disease patients. Scientists and doctors alert people that virus may spread to the world again.

We demand for compensation from China.

British Dr. Brendan Kavanagh (Dr. K) PhD was playing a public piano and live stream to YouTube at King's Cross St Pancras train station in London. All the sudden, a group of Chinese interrupted Dr. K's piano performance. Those Chinese asked Dr. K to stop the video camera because they wanted to protect their "image". Dr. K said "this is a public place and people have no image right in the public place. Dr. K politely told them that they can leave to escape from the camera. Dr. K persistently to play and film his piano performance. Those Chinese said "you are NOT allowed to film them in the background". Dr. K said this is Britain, a free country. This is not Communist China, we don't need to follow Chinese government rules.

The highlight of this piano incident was when Dr. K pointed to a CCP flag and said this is communist China's flag, you are from China. A guy suddenly raised his voice loudly and started yelling and shouting at Dr. K "Don't touch her, don't touch her" several times. Dr. K was stunned and stepped back a few steps. The Chinese girl said "don't shoot him, don't shoot him". Dr. K said I didn't touch her. She carry a CCP flag. The Chinese girl responded "we have image right, you can't film us". The Chinese guy next to her shouted at Dr. K "this is racism", we can take legal action against you". Someone called British police over. Police separated them into two sides. The male policeman talked to Chinese group while a female police talked to Dr. K.

Those Chinese don't want to be filmed but actually they came over to the live stream camera and exposed themselves in front of a live stream camera to the world through YouTube. This piano incident became a BIG EVENT. What a big fuss!!

An outrageous profile on AFF.

I can't read anyone's profile on AFF. However, if I put my computer mouse over a person's picture, I can briefly read that person's beginning profile. About a month ago, an arrogant man read my profile and he is 1 yr younger and distance is near, so I put mouse over and read his profile beginning sentence. He is a Gold member on AFF.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

His profile says "I am married but wife and I are no longer intimate. Looking for a FWB relationship, either short or long to fit my needs..... (FWB means Friend with Benefits.)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OMG, what does he think he is?? A king or an emperor??? He can summon a moron woman to be his toy or slave, for his pleasure and he decides for how short or long that fits his needs. Shame on him. He thinks that all women on Chinese FriendFinder are idiots??? He can continue to stay in his "monogamous life" and get sexual desire to the woman he chooses.

At that time, I was concentrating on Taiwan's election. But when he looked my profile the 2nd time, I immediately went on "My Account", "Blocked member", and blocked "View my profile". But he read my profile the 3rd time, so I went on "Blocked member" to block "Magazine/Blog comments", "Sending emails/flirts", "Search/Browse results", "Appearing in chat/IMc", "Sending invites", "Writing testimonials". I blocked everything to prevent him to read my profile.

The reason I'd like to go on Chinese FriendFinder is because Chinese FriendFinder has "Blogs" to express my opinions. I don't go on Face Book, or any other social media. Chinese FriendFinder is the only place that provides blogs for people who is looking for suitable friends. As you may know, I like to "Travel", "Invest on real estate and stock market" , "Music", "Political current news". I am a retired Calif licensed pharmacist, so sometimes I provided medical news. I am looking for a friend who have "common value" with me and share the opinions with me on a "common ground".

I have had a best friend (Caucasian male, bank CEO ) for 16.5 yrs from "Yahoo Personals" in May 2006. Unfortunately, he passed away on "Heart disease" in January 2022. Life has to go on. I hope I can find another friend who has common value.
_________________________________________________________________________________________
The reason I posted this blog is to warn any idiot Asian woman to contact this "presumptuous" Caucasian man who provides "Friend with Benefits" and she got NOTHING. Be careful, scammers are not only look for money but also for free sxx.

Count down Taiwan's election on 1-13-2024

If you've ever read my profile or blogs, you know I was born and raised in Taiwan and have been residing in California since 1980. Although during the past 43.5 years I only went back to Taiwan twice, and I only voted for the U.S. presidents every 4 years, but I really care about Taiwan. I am worry about CCP sabre-rattling 磨刀霍霍, 好戰挑釁, threaten and intimidated Taiwan consistently.

My ancestors had been in Taiwan since 400+ years ago Ming Dynasty, followed 鄭成功 ships to Taiwan. CCP only has controlled China for 74.5 years. It has been separated 400 years, the people on two sides of Taiwan's strait are tremendously different. I have asked many Americans who had been to Taiwan what impression they have with Taiwanese. I got compliments from them such as "hospitality"殷勤招待, nice, kindness, helping, benevolence 仁慈的, 厚道的, 善意的, 和藹的.

On the contrary, CCP controlled China with "3 yrs Great Famine" that caused 47 millions Chinese died, "10 yrs Cultural revolution" that 43 millions Chinese died, "Tienanmen Square massacre" that over 12 thousand young college students died. One Baby policy and Hong-Kong extradite 引渡 to China, Falung Gong practitioners arrest even "organ harvesting", ... brutal and cruel crimes. CCP prohibited Chinese people to talk about those crimes they committed and brainwashed students since elementary schools. Deplorable Chinese people have been brainwashed to believe they are chauvinists盲目的愛國者. Xi one person's brain coercive 高壓政治 controls 1.4 billion of Chinese people.

Sorry for the digress 脫離主題. Let's talk about Taiwan's presidential election on 1-13-2024. I think the Best candidates are Dr. Lai Ching-te (William Lai) 賴清德 (MD) and his running mate 蕭美琴 H.E. Bi-Khim Hsiao. I have repeatedly watch the YouTube video "On the Road" 在路上 at least 10 times. Taiwan's president Tsai Ing-wen蔡英文 drove the car and their warm conversation on the road touched my heart. Taiwan people are lucky to have a Democracy system and intelligent president to lead the country (Yes, Taiwan is a country and has sovereignty, constitution, flag, passport, freedom of speech, religion and press ....). I believe 賴清德 and 蕭美琴 team will win this election. I believe Taiwanese people's wisdom and vote for them.

Taiwan has the best semiconductor chips in the world and the world see this fact. Best wishes for Taiwan's success.

Please be aware of A-Fib symptoms

I am a retired California licensed pharmacist (Taiwan too), now I have investments in real estate and stock market. I watch my stock portfolio daily and always turn on my TV on CNBC while trading. Lately, I heard Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (an American former professional basketball player who played 20 seasons in the NBA) talks about A-Fib (Atrial fibrillation 心房纖維性顫動) symptoms he has. You may know my best friend who was a banker CEO/Chairman died on A-Fib on January 12, 2022. When I heard Mr. Abdul-Jabbar mentioned his A-Fib symptoms on CNBC during the commercial, I immediately paid attention to his words. He said a website called "No Time To Wait".

I Googled the information of A-Fib symptoms are as follows
• Feelings of a fast, fluttering or pounding heartbeat, called palpitations.
• Chest pain.
• Dizziness.
• Fatigue.
• Lightheadedness.
• Reduced ability to exercise.
• Shortness of breath.
• Weakness.
• Sleep Apnea.
If you have those symptoms, please go see a cardiologist to see if you have A-Fib. No time to wait (no spaces in between words). A-Fib normally has no symptom, but when the above symptom occurs, you need to be aware of and visit a cardiologist.

Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is an irregular and often very rapid heart rhythm. An irregular heart rhythm is called an arrhythmia. AFib can lead to blood clots in the heart. The condition also increases the risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications.

When my banker friend had his 2nd eye Cataract surgery, the General Anesthetic doctor said to him that he woke up 30 minutes delay than normal people, so the eye doctor and the anesthesiologist sent him to the ER. The ER doctor diagnosis was the banker had AFib "Atrial Fibrillation 心房纖維性顫動 in his heart. The ER doctor prescribed him a prescription called "Xarelto".

Where Is China’s Foreign Minister? 秦刚?
Posted:Jul 23, 2023 10:05 pm
Last Updated:Dec 8, 2023 6:47 am

China’s foreign minister, a tough-talking diplomat seen as something of a protégé to President Xi Jinping, has not been seen in 4 weeks, fueling speculation about his disappearance during a critical time for relations between Beijing and Washington.

Qin Gang 秦刚, 57, is one of China’s most prominent voices to the outside world, a former ambassador to the U.S. before Xi promoted him to foreign minister in Dec 2022. Although he and his country have recently tempered their style, Qin was an early adopter of the combative rhetoric later known as China’s “wolf warrior diplomacy.”

But Qin appears to have missed a flurry of high-profile visits, including those this month by Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and U.S. climate envoy John Kerry.

“It’s impossible to know why he has not been seen, because secrecy is part of the political system in China and there is very little information when it comes to public figures,” said Frans-Paul van der Putten, a senior researcher at the Clingendael Institute, a Dutch think tank. “What we do know is that this should be a very important moment for Qin Gang 秦刚, given his background and knowledge of the West, when there are all of these high-level meetings going on,” van der Putten added. “But he is not there.”

The last record of Qin being seen in public was in Beijing on June 25, when he met counterparts from Russia, Vietnam and Sri Lanka, according to the Foreign Affairs Ministry website.

Ten days later, on July 5, China without explanation canceled a meeting between Qin and European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, who had been due to travel to China.

Qin’s absence remained largely unnoticed until last week, when he was due to attend a diplomatic gathering at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit in Indonesia. His ministry’s spokesman, Wang Wenbin 汪文斌, told a briefing two days before that Qin would miss the event because of “health reasons.”

This quote, reported by Reuters, was omitted from the ministry’s online transcript of the briefing. Subsequent attempts to ask about Qin’s whereabouts at the ministry’s daily briefings have not been answered, then similarly excluded from the written record.

“I have no information to provide on this question,” Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning 毛寧said, according to a livestream on the YouTube channel of Taiwan’s CTI TV.

“I don’t know about the case you mentioned,” Mao毛寧 told one of the Western journalists who repeatedly asked about Qin’s return. “China’s diplomatic activities are being carried out as usual,” she told another.

China’s new ambassador to the U.S., Xie Feng,谢锋 did not shed any light on Qin’s whereabouts when he spoke at the Aspen Security Forum. When asked whether Henry Kissinger, the former U.S. secretary of state, who is visiting Beijing had met Qin, the Chinese ambassador said: “Well, let’s wait and see.” He declined to elaborate.

The ambassador also warned the U.S. against allowing Taiwan’s vice president, Lai Ching-te 賴清德, from making a stop in the U.S. on his way to Paraguay 巴拉圭 next month.

Who is the woman in the picture 2? 傅晓田 Does she have extramarital affairs with Qin Gang 秦刚? There is a picture that 傅晓田 held her 1 year old on a social media said "Daddy is too busy to attend his 's birthday." In the same page there is Qin Gang 秦刚 picture in separate picture. What did she imply who the baby boy's father is?? But Qin Gang 秦刚 wife is not 傅晓田. However, in China that top officers have mistress are very common news.
