You don't have noisy neighbours? Good lord!
Er, you do actually have neighbours, don't you? I mean, it's quite hard to imagine having a full set of neighbours in Taiwan, and none of them being of the standard MIT noise-emitting variety.
Are you up there in Acer Park again, or across with Mr He and MJB in Yangmei?
Crickey, good memory you have!
Back in Acer/Aspire park indeed I be now. Townhouse row, I know.
Sounds carry far here. Mostly piano or violin from me neighbours, though there is a mistreated daxhund that gets under my skin.
I for sure be the biggest noise polluter on my block, at times loud guitar, Monty Python skits or War Movies on me telly, vocal discipling of the younglings, and the odd time when I bring over some of the overseas famished players/dancers from Leofoo or Shao Long Guo for some sandwiches or a fry up.
All that is sporadic, as are my neighbours' karaoke.
We forgive each other, in the interest of our common perimetre.
It's been 4 years since I lived in the shitty, and quite frankly, I can't recall what it was like to sleep in that furnace fuckery.
