Poems in Teochew and Canto? Cool.

There's a 金甌會舘 in Los Ángeles. For the longest time, this threw me for a loop. Then I realized 金甌 was Ca Mau. Along with the 台湾會舘 in Los Ángeles, it's one of the few 唐人 會舘s I know based on a homeland outside of China. If I may be so bold as to read into it, I'd say that's a sign that 唐人 somehow considered themselves to still be in China when they went to 台湾 and 金甌. This is why TWnese Hokkiens say their 籍貫 is Taiwan, but Luzon Hokkiens, etc., say their 籍貫 is Hokkian.
