Street photo taken in Ximending district of Taipei, Taiwan.

Jan 17 2012. It was already two months after I relocated back to my home country Taiwan in November 2011 due to my expired H1b working visa.

( Note : US immigration law is that h1b holders need to leave the states for at least one year after we reach maximum 6 year term if we don't get green card before h1b expires. And after one year, we could re-enter the states if companies / employers want to hire us again.)

Being separated from my love in the states, I surely wanna meet up with her soon. However, by the time it was only the 2nd months since I left the US. Still got 10 more months to go and I was not even sure if my company would hire me again.

Being depressed and then looking at the dog up at the stairs in front of happy kid couple in the hot air balloon with big star☆ graphic, it reminded me how happily and bubbly together when we were when in Texas ( Lone STAR☆ State ).

"Will you be waiting for me, my love?"

I felt i was just like the poor dog being kept in restricted zone, asking that same question again and again in my head......

.......vulnerably.

Jan 2013, I was hired back to work in the states again. Yes, the long wait was finally over. However, my love was no longer my love any more.
