Off to Inner Mongolia - ‘勇敢的心’ by 顛覆M

I shall be preparing to leave shortly to take up residence and a teaching position in Inner Mongolia. With any luck, this will be only a brief au revoir rather than a permanent farewell; to my knowledge, Blogger is regrettably still blocked behind the Great Firewall, but of course there are ways over, under and around. For a send-off, here is ‘Braveheart’ [‘勇敢的心’] by Mongolian metalcore masters Ego Fall [顛覆M]!


  1. Congrats on the new job! I wish you the best of luck. Inner Mongolia sounds very interesting. I used to know a Mongolian couple, they were very nice.

  2. Stay safe, Mr. Matthew. Hopefully, you will still be able to keep up on your blog. There is always a way around walls, physical or digital.

    I myself have received an offer for Taiwan, but for no earlier than March, no later than June. Not as soon as I would like, but at least it is somewhat confirmed.

    Best of luck to you!

  3. Many thanks, John and CA Constantian! (And congrats on the future Taiwan job offer, CA Constantian; I hope all goes well for the visa application process. It should be quite enjoyable - I haven't been to Taiwan personally, but I have heard good things about it from those who have been there. Hot and humid, though.)

    I will have to see if it is allowed to set up VPN access through the university (that was the way I did it before). If not, I may have to attempt migrating my blog to Wordpress (again). Thanks for the well-wishes; I hope to keep in contact!
