Yes, for some years we did not even have a bathtub. You take a shower right on the bathroom floor. Many families still don't have tubs or are getting rid of theirs.
Even though we now have tubs, we don't bother with the shower curtain anymore.
Too much freaking mildew.
This topic was brought up a few times in "Let's Talk in English" a Taiwanese language learning magazine. Apparently many Taiwanese go abroad and forget about the shower curtain. I've seen this before, In Israel where we would just squeegee the whole bathroom.
Don't forget. DON'T PUT THE TOILET PAPER IN THE TOILET.
Fold it neatly and put it in the garbage can sitting next to the toilet.
archylgp, that's too bad. Unless your wife really thinks that her parent's are lousy cooks, it is worth a try. She survived. Yes, I really had to suspend several beliefs I had about food safety and hygiene but I saw everyone doing it and I just tried.
I love Taiwanese Food! My mother in law, may she rest in peace, made a special effort to include me. I have a deadly seafood allergy. She would make a special effort to include me by taking my portion out of the pot before she'd add the fish seasoning. She would then continue cooking my portion with the vegetarian equivalent of that sauce or leave it as is.
If your in-laws are really that lousy in the cooking department, you should still try other people's home cooking. Now, where are my chicken feet!
