Anonymous, 24 Oct 2018Republic of China is not the same as People’s Republic of China... moreObviously the person you replied to has a pretty solid understanding of what "Republic China" really is.

Anonymous, 23 Oct 2018It's different government with NO diplomatic relationship. Only ... moreThey should say "from Mainland China to Taiwan". "Taiwanese" government still claim them to be part of "Republic of China" (not to be confused with PRC), also known as the "nationalist China". The government still claim them to be "China", but they have dispute with the Communist party about which "China" (PRC or RC) they represent.
Kind of like North and South Korea, but the difference is the UN recognizes both North and South Korea but only recognize the PRC (by the communist party). Anyway, no one would say either of the North and South Korea are not Korea. The same should be with the Taiwan case.
Also, "Most residents are Chinese" doesn't make it a part of China. No one says Singapore is a part of China.

Its more like the 90's, were all had to be transparent.

This transparent back reminds me of plumbing in buildings a 100 years old, where all pipes were visible, as you would like to brag about having this new smart central heating and/or running water.

Today practically all new buildings has hidden the pipes.

The chips are still so fascinating new that not all want to hide them completely *LOL*

Escaped home (China) to Taiwan (China)?
