I have been really busy while in Taiwan. Nontheless, I am going to compose a quick blog post that I wish someone would have written before I came here.

There are so many differences between any two countries. However, every place has things that are better and things that are worse than the other.  Therefore, here is my list of pros and cons for Taiwan.

Taiwan

Pros:
1. Mopeds Yay!
2. GREAT SHOES AND ENDLESS SHOPPING AREAS
3. Strictly Vegetarian/Vegan restaurants<3 mmmmm nomnomnom
4. NIGHT MARKETS!
5. Cheap, but cute stuff
6. Hello Kitty/Sanrio stores
7. Not so many fat, gross people
8. GREAT FRUIT! ESPECIALLY THE STRAWBERRIES ARE SOOOO MUCH BETTER!
9. Boba (although I'm getting sick of it now haha)
10. Great customer service

2. GOKIBURI! (cockroaches) and other insects
3. Crowding (really do get used to it though)
4. Short, ugly old women staring at me because I'm "different"
5. Shitty tasting water (compared to the U.S.)
6. Scary, crazy drivers...yet is quite interesting
7. Dirtier than the U.S.
8. Squat toilets WTF!? Just kidding...I am starting to like them now haha
9. So many poor, helpless strays ]: (couldn't resist, had to drive around on the moped and feed them)
10. Difficult to find a public bathroom

That's all for now. I'm sure I will update more on this post.

awww to see strays in other countries always pain :( In Singapore they are mostly loved and taken care off, so it breaks my heart to know it's not like that in other places T_T

I know! I always felt the need to stop by 7-Eleven and buy them some food haha...If I do eventually move there, I will take most of them into my home [:
