On most days as a television journalist, I encounter scenarios that shock the conscience.  They’re mostly out in the field, occasionally in the news truck, and sometimes in my own newsroom. 

It’s the stuff that never makes the story I write for the newscast, the moments not captured on video, but it’s material I think is worth sharing.

Then, there’s the family stuff that comes with being Taiwanese-born. The dynamics of an Asian-American family are fodder for case study. As my brother likes to say, “we put the fun in dysfunctional.”   

So, here it is.  The stuff I think is too rich not to divulge.

Mahn-mahn chur. 

That’s the Mandarin version of bon appetit.

(Literal translation: “slow-slow eat.”)

Happy digesting.
