Pandamonium!

Two pandas that were given as a gift from China to Taiwan have been appearing in public for the first time.

The pandas were given as a gift because the relationship between the two countries has been difficult for many years, but the friendship between the countries has improved lately.

When the pandas' names, Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan, are linked together, they mean “reunion” in Chinese.

The pair arrived at Taipei City Zoo in December, but was kept in quarantine for a month.


Tens of thousands of visitors are expected to see them during the Chinese New Year celebrations.

    Actually, what I heard is if you ask someone why they love you, and they don't give you an answer, they really love you. Because if they give you an answer like, "you're pretty, smart, etc" that's only things they like about you, and those things can change.
