One of my 10 year old students showing me his new Motorola KRZR phone, worth about 12000 NTD, just about 350 USD. Most jobs at buxibans are paying 50000-65000 NTD a month. Just to give you an example.
One of my 10 year old students telling me that I didn’t meet her mom yet, I met her nanny at PTA.
Kids leaving right left and center to go to Taipei, Japan, Hong Kong and America with their parents.
My mom isn’t here, she is in Beijing until November.
Kids looking for praying mantises, giant grasshoppers and of course, their favorites giant beetles and playing with them during recess.
Kids scoffing at me when I tell them not to draw in their reading books because they cost 3000NTD.
Teacher I can buy 10 of those books with my own money.
