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.

How's now the situation in Tainan? I wanted to go there but I didn't because of the dengue breakout...

It's fine. Well, I'm still alive anyway. Think three of my friends got it over the last few months, floored them each for a week or so, but haven't heard of anyone getting it recently. Not seen any buildings sprayed for a while either, seems the action has moved to Kaohsiung.

Though I like my sunny Christmas, I cannot help but worry about the dengue situation. Here in Taipei, mosquitos are still having a ball. A pal up in Tianmu says her hubby kills up to 20 mosquitos a night! I overhear them occasionally in Xindian but I got the chemical bombs all around set to exterminate.

In the ol country, they have like 2 cases a day, and "summer"/less rain season is just starting. Here in Taiwan, it is still like 20 a day, last I read.
Lo urgente no deja tiempo para lo importante. Mafalda.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.
