40. Shyou Fung Ho ahma

Monday August 11, 2008

Li-Fang Yang (at the Taipei Women's Rescue Foundation) took me to Shyou Fung Ho ahma's home. The *ahma is an aboriginal Taiwanese and lives with her daughter and grandson.

* "halmunis" in Korean, or "ahmas" in Taiwanese means "grandmas". (In Asia, elders are commonly referred to as grandmother or grandfather, whether you are related to them or not, as a way of showing respect.)
