Would love to do some meetups/hangouts with people. Pretty much the only thing I don't enjoy is clubbing. Every now and then it's okay but not for meeting new people (too loud; too expensive).

One thing I would really love to do is hiking. Especially as the weather cools down a bit.

Oh, and I'm 29 and from California.



Speaking of hiking, I went to Xiangshan hiking trail last weekend and was so excited to see the beautiful view up there. Unfortunately, I wasn't in a good condition on that day and almost passed out after climbing just for five minutes. lol
Still, it's a good place to visit. :wink:

I'm a Taiwanese guy now living in Tokyo however I've found it much more harder than people in Taiwan to make friends with the Japanese.The barrier is so evident and the people are so cold. Maybe the condition is worse than in Taiwan.
So in the two years, I've only made friends with the western people or people from other Asia countries.It took less time to know whether this guy or girl like you or not. And talking in straight is better than guessing what people are thinking about all the time. I think if Taiwanese people can improve the English skill, you may find it easier to get along with Taiwanese people,at least better than the Japanese people.
After I finish my study in Japan I will soon come back.
Hope to make friends with you. I'm looking forward to it.

I guess it's time to throw a party, isn't it XD

I can totally feel you........I was working in Japan and realized it's such a painful process to make local friends.
Then I gave up now just moved back to TW.

I don't really know how does it work here but wondering is there anyone down for grab a coffee or something?
It's gonna be an easy hanging out. Let's spice it up folks!!! :D

I'm in Taipei by the way.

I'm gonna meet up with someone (also on this forum) for the first time this Friday night for a beer or two (or ten depending on how the night goes) at a local brew place in Taipei (location tbd, but probably Da'an area). Why don't you guys come? Can even switch it up to dinner and drinks if that works better.

I think him and I are about the same age, we both ride motorcycles, and are from LA/California area so we might all have some commonalities. I think we're both pretty easy going.
You can add my line- jkaoh if you wanna hang out!

A Japanese man has been arrested on suspicion of writing a computer virus that destroys and replaces files on a victim PC with manga images of squid, octopuses and sea urchins.
