Woman looking for her father finds out it's.... her boss

TAIPEI (AFP) - A Vietnamese woman searching for her father worked at his home in Taiwan for seven months without realising who he was before the relationship came to light, her father and police said Tuesday.

Tran Thi Kham, 40, travelled to Taiwan in 2005 hoping to find her biological father, who fell in love with her Vietnamese mother in Hong Kong in 1967, police said.
Tran's mother became pregnant but was forced to return home for family reasons. She died two months after giving birth to Tran, leaving the baby an engraved gold ring and a photo of her Taiwanese father, who did not know she existed.

Giving his reaction to the meeting, Tran's father, Tsai Han-chao, told the local TVBS cable news channel: "Life's ups and downs are just like television drama. How could I have ever dreamed that she is my daughter? I can't stop crying when we were finally united."

Tran was hired by Tsai in Taipei county to look after his paralysed wife and was reassigned by an agency to a family on the offshore Kinmen island seven months later, after the woman died.

After arriving in Kinmen, Tran realised that she had left a bag containing her father's ring and photo in her ex-employer's home and asked the local police for help, the police in Kinmen said.

When Tsai opened the bag, he immediately recognised the items he had given his girlfriend.

He wasted no time flying to Kinmen for a tearful meeting with his daughter.
"This is incredible and really touching to see the father and daughter get together after all these years," said policeman Ku Ker-ya.

Ku told AFP that DNA testing had confirmed Tran's parentage and she returned to Vietnam last week to deal with legal documents.

Mmmm... cute story.

But from a cultural aspect, a Taiwanese man and a Vietnamese women is kind of inappropriate. Taiwanese men go to Vietnam and buy young women from their families and basically enslave them back in Taiwan promising them opportunity and freedom... after god knows how many years of servitude and rape. Again, cute story though.

I remember when I was in Vietnam, I would get so offended when people asked me if I was "ngoui Diloan (Taiwanese)" just because I don't look Vietnamese, therefore I must be some creep Taiwanese man looking for a bride.

This happened to an American woman last year... I think I read about it in Reader's Digest (yes, I'm a nerd).

Except that it was her mother she was looking for, and it turned out to be her boss.

God, I would've preferred that. Viet Kieu or not, I was still a foreigner so haggling over prices was absolutely ridiculous and I didn't think anything about them asking if I was Taiwanese until my mom had explained to me what Taiwanese men do in the country.
