I arrived at Taoyuan International Airport at 830pm on saturday june 16, i breezed through immigration and baggsge reclaim, met Selina and got a taxi back to Zhongli, we were in her apartment around 930pm. This trip to Taiwan would be my last from the UK for a while, this time i was staying and not going back, so a new chapter of my life begins from here. Our first task is too find a new apartment, this one is just too small now everytime i come here Selina has added more and more things, her daughter stays over 4 nights a week and with me here we wont be able to swing a cat, so the hunt is on to find somewhere big enough and cheap enough and near to where we want to be, we will have to consider visitors staying over from the UK so we might need 3 bedrooms, we definetely need a kitchen thats well equipped as this will be the hub of our future business and i like the idea of a balcony where we can sit out providing we dont get plagued by mosquitos, so thats our first job one thing by one thing, hopefully this week we can find something.

ive just booked my flight for my latest trip to Taiwan, ive changed my mind about 10 times as to when i actually go and finally i decided today, june 15 at 1725pm i leave and this time im not coming back. Selina and i have a busy time ahead inbetween getting married in Hong Kong in july we are moving apartments then setting up a night market stand which is a prelude to opening up a western style breakfast shop somewhere around Taichung City in 2014. Each time ive been there in the past it has been getting harder and harder to leave so this time after long discussions, many changed plans, many ideas weve decided to go for it and get married, live together, set up a business together, we dont want to be apart any longer than we need to be so basically ive got 9 weeks to go before i leave Britain and i cant say im too sorry to leave. I feel im ready for a change and you cant get anything bigger than this so why not were not getting any younger and chances like this are few and far between, ive been single for the last 13 years and feel ready again to take the plunge, the time just seems right.
