Dinner Performance
" our moms"


It all started with a heartfelt conversation between my dear roommate and me about our moms’ reactions when they found out we were buying them gifts. As we reminisced and laughed about the similarities in our moms’ reactions, we couldn’t help but feel a deep sense of nostalgia and curiosity about their thoughts and feelings as a woman.

As we reflected on our moms’ lives, from their youth to their retirement, we felt a sense of emotional connection and empathy. Even though the relationship between mainland China and Taiwan is fraught with tension and complexities, we know that we share the same cultural background, heritage knowledge, and family values. Despite being separated by political power, our bond simplify as women and daughters is unbreakable.

No politics but politics
