We prefer "whitey" or "cracker", thank you very much.
What she's getting out of this, as implied by @Rocket, is confusion and diversion. How many locals are now on her side, regardless of her "minor oversight" - which was the phrase used by a local friend when giving her two cents on the issue. Not only that, but my friend says the foreigner should have done due diligence on the property and not trusted a real estate agent, who are all "born to lie" (her words, not mine), even though he was ostensibly paying her to not lie to him. Something like that. So in this one, isolated local opinion, it's still the fuckin' foreigners fault because he trusted a local real estate agent.
The general rule in wine is "drink what you like." While Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio may have been the advised pairing for lobster, you could have no trouble washing it down with a Pinot Noir or any number of Italian red table wines. Despite having sommelier certification, I pay zero attention to wine-pairing unless dining with friends and they ask: "What should we drink?" At that point, you may have fish, chicken, pork and beef entrees coming to the table. What do you order? More importantly, what's on the wine list? Apply the general rule.
You are correct: 930NT is not a lot of money for a bottle of wine in a Taipei restaurant, and I have to say, I've been pleasantly surprised by the affordability of certain wines. For instance, I'd pay about the same in Taipei for a bottle of Ridge Geyserville as I would in San Francisco. However, I suspect this is due to the on-going glut of "juice" on the market.
