Shocking Taiwanese T-shirts

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.

I have shirt that has "lao wai lai le" (in Chinese characters) on the front and on the back "lao wai zou le". The locals enjoy it.

Saw your posting on LinkedIn yesterday. Are you already distributing them?
Will drop you a PM in a few days !


I saw too on LinkedIn

Do you have shirts that are female fitted? IE, larger around the chest and small around the waist?
"I wanted to be puzzled and charmed, to experience the endless, beguiling variety of a continent where you can board a train and an hour later be somewhere where the inhabitants speak a different language, eat different foods, work different hours, live lives that are at once so different and yet so oddly similar. I wanted to be a tourist," Bill Bryson.

how much satisfaction,
how much comfort,
how much soul and transcendence there might be

I've just been looking at the Taiwerica designs and almost wetting myself with laughter. I'm having trouble breathing.

Best for me were:

1) Who you gonna use? Firecrackers.
2) Don't eat KimChi because Koreans cheat at Tai Kwan Do.
3) Taiwan. Ready for summer.
4) Baby in scooter.
5) I look like Brad Pitt.


I am usually opposed to stereotypes, but when they are on t-shirts. SOLD!!!
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.

I've seen some shockers lately.

I'll make a point of writing them down, cuz I don't remember things so well these days.
