Do you speak Mandarin , Cantonese or Both?

I speak Mandarin fairly well. I grew up in speaking Cantonese but have forgotten it all. My four children, aged 12,16,17 & 18, all speak basic Mandarin, having grown up in Taiwan.

What are your hobbies?

I like going places with my family. I like writing. My first book is about to be published and I'm working on two more. I like making exotic and beautiful candles and teaching candle making classes.

What are some of the fun activity you like to do with this group?

We miss Taiwan and Chinese culture very much. Although we are all Americans, we have made Taiwan our home for a long time. We enjoy meeting Chinese speakers and making Asian friends.

We all look forward meeting you :-)

My name is Marie. I come from a missionary family. I grew up in HongKong and Macau, then later returned to Asia with my American husband where we raised our children in Taiwan.
