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.

Haha, just found out that they almost run out of veins to stick needles in ... Ouch!

The real story behind this crisis I'll post in the health forum ... It's probably a unique case ... Even my surgeon never saw anything like ... Ther is always a first time :D

BTW, in hindsight I'm lucky I can still post here ...

Damn.. hope you are better soon.
It's such a pleasure living in a world where everyone is in such a hurry to be outraged over someone else’s trivial comments

oh no, sounds horrible:( I hope you get better soon, nothing like wishing you could just go for a walk or have a crappy day at work when you can't.

Chris and I are going to visit you Friday evening so please take a shower before we arrive. Or at least comb your hair.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

A crappy day at work would be better than this indeed ... Thanks :bow:

Have you managed to get a private room? If one's available, it's well worth seizing the chance to take it. It really does make a world of difference, and costs less than an average decent hotel or minsu room.

When my daughter was in hospital just over a year ago, we were in a 2-bed room at first, which was awful in so many ways; but when we were able to move to a private room (having continuously asked for it as soon as one became available), it was almost pleasant - the room was surprisingly large and well furnished, and at least as good as many hotels I've stayed in at the same or higher prices.
If I prioritized the acquisition of wealth above other purposes in life, I might still have come to Taiwan to study Chinese, but I doubt I would have remained here.

Is it waffle-related?
It's amazing what getting out of the care of the Scottish National Health Service can do for your life expectancy.

Noticed that too ... But, no private room yet ... Right now, it's like 'Camping Cosmos' in this two bed room .. :loco:
