Fu Ren University (Short name: Fu Da)
Today is my brother's graduation day, he is graduate under the course physiology at Fu Ren Private University at Taipei. Fu Ren university is Catholic founder university, but they did accept student which is non-catholic. There were one grand graduation in big hall on the early morning which able bring in 1 family member only, and another at their lecturer hall they used to study there. There are about 60 graduate with my brother. Here, female is definitely more than the male, the students taking the course not as many as in Malaysia's University, in one course, they do their own secretary, management, counselor.
Student and staff here use motor bike or bicycle as their transport.
Another thing is, among their course mate, there is one unlucky lady who had involve in the accident last 2 years when she was riding, she being coma for a year and now partially recover already, until now still have some difficulty to talk, walk, she suppose graduate with my brother. They invite her to the graduation, care about her from time to time, giving encouragement. I think it is good culture that we need learn from them.
The event is only half day, after taking photo, we go back hotel having a small rest. About 2pm, we continue our travel again, today's plan is walk around the Taipei main center of city. To go city, we go to the nearest MRT station - Ximen with public bus service. Before we move on, we take a chance to walk around at Xi men, under the hot sun, the street still full, the shop and stall is open, business is actually going on.
