The first time I would like to write such stories of the travel.
Left home to Taipei for the job when I was very young so I just know a way of the job that is working harder than others. Hope one day it could change the future.
Therefore, I am particularly understanding some feelings and grievances.
These years I feel how I am a lucky person, who has a great job and meets guests who support us also completed some wonderful dreams and plans.
My work is going travel everywhere to shuttle between cities and countries, moreover, to meet many friendly people and lovely things. Maybe we traveled to some places sparsely populated, hence these people were kind. Everything is so lucky.
Guests of the Acorn Tour treat us like a friend, some of them are even warmer, praiser, more encouragement and recognition than a family.
It makes our such a small team have resoluteness morale.
One thing happened recently, which can pretend unheard and unseen, nevertheless, my heart was not allowed to do this it was very helpless and displeased.
Furthermore, recalled some memories of travel while it happened something.
Imperfection the true story 1
It is a contemporary story of Cinderella or a little princess Sara that unexpectedly happened surrounding mine. (However, her happiness is not coming yet how long the perfect ending will be waiting in the fairy tale.) I can't help her apart from comfort to her and just watched her crying. The exclusion of the soul is a wound with no trace. The little girl does not know how to explain her grievance because there are not any scars on her body with no evidence to tell how painful her heart is. Once, tried to step in to help but it became complicated. The couple, which full of lies, talks about their kindness everywhere. I would like to expose the lies but he said those are their family matters that I have no rights to. Totally cannot offer any help without any pieces of evidence. This child will be had a hard life in the future.
Imperfection the true story 2
Many years ago happened such a story again, a merciful elder told me that her sister hit the elder's foreign housemaid. The elder gave a red envelope (a bonus) to the housemaid, who worked hard, however, the elder's sister considered the housemaid stole the money. Sister beat the housemaid and threatened her with going to the police station. The housemaid did not know how to explain the situation by herself due to the language barrier.
Imperfection the true story 3
Some of the group guests kindly shared snacks and coins with the poor children and elders when went to the developing countries. There always was a person to loudly say, " Do not give them money that they would be spoiled and lazier. They would use your money to buy drinks and to gamble afterwards let children come out to beg." Blah, blah, blah. Kept saying these harsh words.
If they had the ability who are willing to beg. I believe they took some coins just to think they could have a meal.
Imperfection the true story 4
Once, the group went to a village of the Golden Triangle when I just started this job. A guest, who came from America, was very generous to prepare many stationeries which as gifts for those children in the village. Suddenly, an uncle of the other guest loudly said "It still needs charity for Taiwanese even not to mention charity for the foreign people, and do not need to charity for them." when the group guests were happy to help to give those stuff to children.
Imperfection the true story 5
Once, when traveled to Myanmar the group went to visit a local grand celebration of the temple where had thousands of monks. There was a very wealthy local family coming, who are a couple, 2 children, a housekeeper and a housemaid, they prepared much food for those thousands of monks with their piety in order to increase their good karma. This scene is so heartwarming. But suddenly there were some curious and innocent children (Dressed in rags) surrounding the temple to watch this celebration while the wealthy man was yelling at these children. The wealthy man thought this grand and solemn celebration how come it could be allowed the naughty children to been running around, consequently, the housekeeper chased away these children with yelling and a stick.
I stood on the side and thought that this behavior was to do a good deed?
Donation to those monks but using a stick to chase away these poor children. Would the wealthy family gain good karma from the Buddha? There never had an answer.
Imperfection the true story 6
The capital of fashion – Paris. One day, guests would like to buy some souvenirs of keyrings which were the shape of the Eiffel Tower from local black hawkers in front of the Eiffel Tower. Although they did not know each other, hawkers were very kind. A guest was the first to buy many keyrings then other guests started following to buy a lot. The hawkers considered they should give some keyrings for free to these guests due to the guest's generosity, therefore, other hawkers did accordingly. Keyrings were the same price and quantity without any bargain issue. The guest trusted the hawker would hold the €100euro to exchange for small bills even had not enough change.
A young lady who wore name-brand clothes was impolite to keep bargain and wanted more keyrings for free. The hawker believed it was really a cheap price for everyone which cheaper than a half-price in service areas and can not be destroying the market. Moreover, many guests already had bought so it must be fair. However, the lady started playing some tricks, for instance, acting in a cutesy manner, ignoring the hawker, bargaining, and so on. the hawker hoped the product could sale to her so he silently followed her and made a plea for buying. Lastly, the lady just elegant said, "It is annoying why he following me." Another guest could not bear with this situation and said " No one wants to follow her." The hawker hoped to succeed for sale. Will the lady impolite bargain the price if she goes to name-brand stores like LV, Chanel for shopping?
Eventually, this lady did not buy anything from the hawker.
I often went to these developing countries for a while, the people of these countries who were contentment and optimistic always had a smile and kindly treated that I had felt from them. It always feels friendly when every time seeing these migrant workers or housemaids came to Taiwan.
These people who devoted their youth and labor came to Taiwan far away from their homes for work. They did what the Taiwanese did not want to do, however, sometimes they must bore the unfair treatment. These unseen oppressed and grievance matters happen everywhere every day. No matter you are migrant workers, foreign housemaids, foster children, adoption children, stayed at other's homes, underprivileged who have a grievance but just silently bear it.
