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.
These are only pre-shocks ... the big one has still to come!

I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on
Who am I?
I am Europe

I was the same. In a room with a bunch of people, they all noticed it but I didn't.

At least the one that just happened was pretty mild compared to earlier today, mostly just made me feel dizzy.

Is it me or is it unusual to have the epicenter in Taoyuan? Worse: the previous ones were in Hualian area, now, the movement activated another fault in Taoyuan... Not so nice.

Epicenter is in Hsinchu County up near Smangus Village. Taoyuan is the nearest seat of government. 4 quakes so far and we're starting to get nervous here
. I guess Mother Earth is doing some flexing up there in the mountains.
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.
