Good grief, TL. You really need to look at your salt intake. I find a lot of Taiwanese food very salty (it comes from soy sauce, if not from salt added directly). Seriously, if your salt tolerance is that high, be careful. It's actually quite easy to 're-train' your tastes to accept little or no salt. Takes a couple of months. Give it a go. Either that, or move to HK - where they add food to their salt, rather than vice versa.
Me too, and this is what frustrates me the most:
ie., the idea that having no pollution means being 'primitive'. Where on earth does this idea come from? The edumacation system? Apple Daily? It obviously makes no sense, yet the majority of Taiwan's population (especially the politicians) seem to believe it.
