Housecat did a good job combining all the future Call me Maybe posts here :thumbsup:
I feel spring is in the air.
I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on

Who am I?
I am Europe

Anyone to hang out?

Postby yuhsueh » 15 Jun 2012, 18:21

Hi there

I'm a Taiwanese male working in the UK currently. I will be back in TW to visit my family early August and stay for a while. Just wondering if there's any English speaking folk I can hang out with? And of course I don't mind helping practice your Mandarin if you wish. I'll live in Hsinchu but will be through in Taipei quite frequently I suppose. Feel free to PM me or reply here. Let's speak soonest either on FB or via email. Hopefully hear from any of you shortly.

Im Irene, a Taiwanese, was living in Australia for a while and I love traveling, making some friends from all over the world.
It's also hard for me to meet some foreigners in Taipei, I didnt mean there's no any foreigners here but what I said is I don't think it's easy to get close to you since
hanging out with people from same country or sharing same language is always easier.

Im quite bad at teaching Mandrine if you're eager to learn grammer... but happy to practice with and share some culture to.
Im working in Taipei near 饒河 night market. Welcome any of you send me a msg and we may have a cup of coffee or drink then.:)

Good luck, and all that. You seem really sweet. But here's some advice. People respond better if they aren't branded as foreigners, adogah, laowai, or waiguoren all the time. :2cents:

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. The girl can chew with her mouth open, that if you love her, you do not care. If you do not lover her, if her pinkie toe is half an inch deviant, the relationship is doomed. - Icon

You know Bis, this is actually one situation where I wouldn't be offended in being referred to as a "foreigner". And that's what we would call ourselves in this kind of conversation, no ? What other word or phrase do you suggest that she use: "people from other countries" ? Bit of a waste of words, it means exactly the same as "foreigner".

Indeed, and I didn't mean to come over as negative. Sorry if it did. I was just making a general statement.

Want to meet new friends-moving to TW in August

Postby Kh_cincy » 19 Jun 2012, 07:39

I am moving to Taiwan in mid-August to teach English. I enjoy a pretty active and social lifestyle right now, and I don't want that to diminish while living in Taiwan. I am hoping to be able to meet some new friends, ex-pats would be cool, but I am open as long as you are not a psycho weirdo. :wink: I would just like to find some cool people to hang out with while I'm there. Would love to hear about your Taiwan experiences as well.

Dear Kh_cincy,

Welcome to the forum, and welcome to Taiwan! :)

I'm sure if you were able to find friends back home, you'll find more here. Sometimes people who start out with a school that's got a number of teachers quickly make friends with them (so a bigger school might be better for this). Other people sign up for Chinese classes and quickly find like-minded individuals to hang out with.

I'd be happy to have you as a friend.

Unfortunately, I'm one of those psycho weirdos. :( :discodance: :bluemad: :lick: :loco: :) :fume: :lol: :hand: :bravo: :noway: :roflmao: :liar:
