The Bath

Han Zi Ming loves his son very much.  But like a very good Taiwanese father, he has never told his boy  how proud he is or how much he admires him.  When his son won second place in a class essay contest, Mr Han took him to the surfer pits where they enjoyed a good scrub and relaxed in the hot warm soothing waters that spill out of Taiwan's guts.
