Girl meets guy on online site. They go to dinner in Xinyi district. Go back to his place and make out. Have a second date a few days later, go back to his place and pork (A total of three times between 9PM and 11PM. Good performance!) Girl claims he was rough in bed. He takes some pictures of her afterward while she is still in the thrush of passion (趁著我意亂情迷). He goes to Japan on a business trip a few days later and "demands" to see her masturbate online (more like he asks and she more than willingly agrees to, but hey, he's an evil foreigner.) Girl gets afraid that he'll spread the photos online, so she calls up the floor manager/night guard of his building, who confirms that he works for AIT and that he brings many different girls back home (You ass! I hope they fire him.) Several days later, she runs into him while he's taking another girl back into his apartment (undoubtedly after she had been waiting outside his apartment for hours or even days) and the three of them get into a huge fight. She feels like she was abandoned, so she files a complaint with AIT and the Apple Daily.

Ha! No, you're the type who puts out with dirty foreigners on the SECOND date. Big difference.

Here's a sidebar panel: http://tw.nextmedia.com/applenews/artic ... D/20090821

According to relationship expert Jiang Yingyao, there's nothing too different between dating a foreigner and dating a local man. "Some Taiwanese are under the mistaken impression that foreigners are romantic, but you have to be cautious of foreigners who, because of a sense of racial superiority, like to play Taiwanese women." Jiang thinks that some Taiwanese women like to date foreigners because walking down the street, pulling on some foreigner's sleeve makes them feel special, but actually this reaction is based on some inferiority complex.

According to architect Kelly, who has dated over 20 foreigners, "In foreigners' eyes, Asian women are gentle, loyal and dependent. That's why they go crazy for them." But she says, "Ninety percent of the foreigners are trash! They have shitty jobs and the women back home wouldn't think anything of them." [Personal interjection: Hey, you're the one who has porked 20 foreigners. I think you're the one who is 爛貨]

Tina, who has gone out with a foreigner for 3 years, calls on all Taiwanese women to open their eyes. "It should be you who's pursuing the foreigner, not being pursued."

According to relationship expert Jiang, foreigners have this concept of "Sex first, then love." She urges women to go back to the fundamentals. There are too many cultural differences between foreigners and Taiwanese. There's no need to think foreigners are superior, let alone is there any need to put up with their sexual demands. Women should pay attention to how these foreigners treat people, both in professional situations and social gatherings, before deciding whether to proceed.

Perhaps that part could be better translated as: "You should be the one choosing the foreigner, not letting yourself be the foreigner's prey."
If I prioritized the acquisition of wealth above other purposes in life, I might still have come to Taiwan to study Chinese, but I doubt I would have remained here.

wow

the translation really is racist and anti-foreign yeah.

How to protect yourselves from the hunting foreigners and 2 different Taiwanese women who have dated foreigners, for 3 years and 20 different guys respectively stating how big arseholes we are

could you run this about a nationality in your own country, ie, (for UK) "French Men steal our women by being richer then treat them like sluts."

she dated 20 guys ( hope they were all guys..maybe Kelly swings both ways..)..let's see 90% are trash so that means 18 out of 20 are trash..man she needs to date 18 trashy guys to figure out that she is dating trash!! how dumb does that make her???

eee forget Asian women..any guy/gal will look for a girl/guy who is loyal and dependent...so is it wrong for the guys to go crazy for Asian woman?? at least it is a valid reason for going crazy...what reason does Kelly have for going crazy over foreigners?? if 90% are trash then the balance 10% are good so how come none of the guys in the good 10% want to have a long term relation with you Miss Kelly???

We're talking about an article in Apple Daily, right?

My guess is, there is no architect named Kelly who dated 20 foreigners. :noway:

They wanted to flesh out the article, so they made up a few details to spice things up a bit more.

Of course, Apple Daily might not work that way, but it looks like that kind of rag to me.

And I thought Taiwanese people scored well on international test and were suppose to be intelligent. I am guessing the most male mammals think sex first. Whether the mammals are American males, Taiwanese males, bears, tigers, etc.

There are a few very serious questions about this (yes, I know it's only an Apple Daily story):

1. What - if anything - is her actual "complaint" about? I really can't imagine someone in a normal country filing a complaint (is it a legal complaint or is she just complaining to a newspaper) that some guy did her, she took some naked pics and he didn't put a ring on a finger. What is the basis for her issue? If every girl I slept with and didn't call waged a PR campaign and filed complaints...well, I wouldn't be able to go out very much now would I?

2. If this were any case involving 2 Chinese (e.g. the recent case of the old perv who pulled down a young woman's pants down in Sanchong or something), they would ONLY be referred to in reportage as "surnamed Chen" bla bla bla.

How is it that the "accuser" in this case gets cited by pseudonym while the white guy (who as far as my legal background goes has done absolutely nothing wrong) has has name tossed around everywhere in the press.? The only victim I can see here is him as his career in Taiwan is finished.

3. Is this simply yet another case of predatory young Taiwan skanks playing victim? It has that air. It could be another case like that ridiculous one involving the flight attendant and the foreign professor and the lawsuit. Is the young Carnegies-bait girl in this case thinking "You cheat me American man. Now I make you make big pay. Pay me big money. Five dollah massagee."

These people are beyond ridiculous. The news media here is beyond a joke. A guy screwed me over, now I need to go on and tell everyone. I can do it right after the press conference featuring old businessman crying and apologizing for cheating on his wife. This is before the press briefing by the politician/businessman bowing and threatening to resign for screwing something up. Later, we will have a whole family of people wearing sunglasses at a press conference while they cry about something.

I like it. Yes, I like it. But you are going to get flamed. Yes, you are going to get FLAMED.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Don't be a cheap cunt. - Deuce Dropper
