Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

I think I will have to change my avatar, for location I have SUNNY Taidong. Ha, not this year. Fucking pissed off all of the time with cabin fever. Expected back in fucking cold Northeastern US where I grew up, but fer fucks sake, this is supposed to be in the tropics. At least if you live in a cold climate area, you have central heat, AND insulated fucking buildings!

That is why I am asking about snow in Yangming Shan. Snow in Alishan, far down South away from me, is OK. It is beautiful, it fills the mountain air with magic, yes. Half an hour by car away from me is a problem.

No worries. We'll be back to our beautifully hot loooooong summers soon enough.

Sunny and cool. Nice and warm outside, but cooler in my house. If you're coming from Taipei, you may never leave.

There, there. *hugs icon, and affectionately pats her on the back* Just keep in mind the air-cons you can use to control your environment better. Beats freezing our asses off 247.

Tough choice, actually, though thanks for the hug -in cold weather, that is.
