After a trip together in Asia, Tomer returned to New York while Jun went and visited her relatives back home.

Due to all of these unpredicted elements, they decided to meet in Taiwan.

This meant that they had to start everything from scratch, and brand new way of life had to emerge. They supported each other faithfully, and after 5 years of hard work and adjusting to the lifestyles In Taiwan, Tomer is now a co-owner of Sababa Pita Bar, and formed the rock band "Neon" with his wife Jun as the lead singer.

Tomer(前)來自以色列,在紐約開餐廳並認識了來自馬來西亞的Jun(後),兩人相戀。一次亞洲的旅行後,Tomer返回紐約,Jun回馬來西亞探親。當Jun準備回紐約和Tomer見面時,美國政府卻沒有批准Jun的入境加簽,而Tomer也因為他的國籍,無法進入馬來西亞。因為這些意外,他們約在台灣碰面。

這幾乎是將一切歸零,而選擇重新開始的決定。經過五年的適應、努力與相互支持,現在Tomer開了自己的餐廳Sababa Pita Bar,和Jun組了自己的樂團Neon,還擁有一個寶貝女兒Mika。

Neon將於2007年1月發片,製作人是陳昇。Sababa Pita Bar雖然剛開幕,已經有網友在部落格裡報導了。
