What job does your Taiwanese spouse or partner do?

Postby Milkybar_Kid » 30 Oct 2010, 19:57

Following on from this post http://www.forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=92863 I just had a sudden curiosity to find out what other peoples Taiwanese spouses or partners did for work.

Maybe they don’t work, maybe they are a student, maybe they are looking after your kids or maybe they are a Beetle Nut Girl? :lol:

I will get the ball rolling. My Taiwanese girlfriend works as a receptionist in a hotel in Kaohsiung.

How much do you pay for this information?

What can you give me in return? How are things going with your GF, any interesting stories, photos?

Second of all, as in all honeymoons, all is well until it is not. It is until the unexpected happens that you will see all grievances surface -ask anyone in any relationship. The girl can chew with her mouth open, that if you love her, you do not care. If you do not lover her, if her pinkie toe is half an inch deviant, the relationship is doomed. - Icon
