Moderators: Tempo Gain, TheGingerMan
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.
plum powder rocks, especially on guava. I always wish those packets contained more.

The salt stops the pineapple eating holes in your mouth. Yes, really.
Once again Taiwanese do know a lot about fruit and vegetables, how to grow them, how to prepare them and especially how to eat them
are you saying if i eat salt with pineapple my mouth wont sting? Incredible.

Yes, try it, some fruits like pineapple can cause mouth ulcers. My wife has taught me quite a lot about fruit, she grew up in the countryside and ate fresh fruit everyday.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.
