Photographs of a Taiwanese man at an airport pulling two large suitcases,
carrying a baby strapped to his chest and wearing a collapsible baby pram on his back have gone viral, with Taiwanese and Japanese netizens calling him the ideal of Taiwanese manhood.
The man, an employee at a bed-and-breakfast in Pingtung County, who prefers to be known only as Charles, said he inadvertently became an overnight sensation after his wife uploaded photographs of him carrying all their luggage during a family trip to Japan in January.
He said that he offered to plan the trip and carry all the luggage because his wife was three months pregnant.
He did not mind when the weight of the luggage increased with the purchase of souvenirs midway through the trip, even though the combined weight of his daughter, her equipment and the suitcases was about 55kg, he said. [FULL STORY]
