Andy's Photo Album
(School Portraits)


The popularity of the Internet has made it easier to find old friends, classmates, teachers, and other acquaintances. I made a list of all the teachers that I had from Elementary through High Schools and they are listed in order of periods in a school day. I want all old acquaintances to know that I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth and please feel free to respond if you remembered me.
If you are wondering, I have already found many old friends/classmates via the Internet thru social websites such as Facebook.
Born on November 30, 1971 (or Minguo Year 60) in Taipei City, Taiwan, the Republic Of China (not to be confused with the People's Republic of China)

Attended Guangren Catholic Elementary School and Kindergarden in Taipei City, Taiwan (臺北市光仁小學暨附設幼稚園). My memory is dim on this, so that's why I posted some pictures here so maybe an old acquaintance whom I once attended this school with could find me.
You might wonder how a practicing Buddhist like me could have attended a Catholic school? Well, I was previously enrolled in another elementary school but, if I can recall, for just a mere four days before I was kicked out for being a bad boy. I would run to the playground during the daily national anthem! My mother had to find, plead and beg for another school who would accept me for the time being until we would eventually immigrate to the United States.

  • Kindergarten (1976-1977):

    Why wasn't I smiling in this picture?
    It's probably because I got frequently spanked
    by one of these teachers. There was no law against
    corporal punishment in Taiwan at that time.

    November 5, 1977. The scratches
    on the boy in the picture was because
    I didn't get along with him.
