Whack Things in Taiwan (part 3)

Moderators: Tempo Gain, TheGingerMan

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.

Second of all, as in all honeymoons, all is well until it is not. It is until the unexpected happens that you will see all grievances surface -ask anyone in any relationship.

Well, the article says the guy is making a movie in China and that he visited some friends in Taiwan, who took him clubbing around 101. He came to Taiwan to "chill out". :eek:

During winter in cities its actually better for them. There is really agressive salt on the ground everywhere to fight ice on the streets and sidewalks. Really bad for the dogs, and nothing they are naturally equipped to handle. Less of a problem in taiwan though you'd think...

I get that. In between Batman movies, I come here to chill out and teach English. After The Dark Knight Rises, I reckon I may just retire here. :D
