After the gathering hosted by the FAPA-YPG DC Chapter, I spent an extra day with Su Beng in Maryland at the home of his relative where he was staying. It was the first time that I was able to just spend some quality time with him. I brought him some famous New York bagels, which he enjoyed very much. He said they reminded him of something called “kiam gong bian” (in Taiwanese), which apparently is the equivalent of a Taiwanese bagel.
While I was there I also video recorded this statement that Su Beng made regarding a book which was set to be released on July 31st in Taiwan. The book is an authorized Chinese language biography of Su Beng written about him by Professor Su Jen-Ming (衝突與挑戰: 史明生命故事 作者蘇振明). The title of the book translates as: Conflict & Challenge: Lifestory of Su Beng and includes illustrations drawn by the author (Professor Su who is a professor of art).
