Taiwan Just (slightly) Relaxed Dual Citizenship Rules.


#362

What mafan should we be giving Household Registration? I thought they just forwarded everything.


#363

Well, hopefully they will forwad mafan at our displeasure to the “we have no clear instructions” reply. We want clearly written rules.

As we say in Spanish, o hay pa’todos o hay patadas.


#364

Do share! :popcorn:


#365

Not being a literatus, I’ll probably download information using the “phoenix basket.”


#366

Back on track:

Although she might not look like a local, Mylod said she has long thought of herself as Taiwanese because she has lived here for more than 40 years and grown to love the place.

She had to live here 40 years to get nationality?!


#367

I’m 54…only 30 more years to go! (As soon as I finish my seminary training, of course)


#368

Worse: the woman is 84 years old and still teaching.

I know she looks good for her age and everything about keeping active to stay healthy but I hope that at that age I will be under a palm tree sipping pina coladas, if you catch my drift. And the only teaching will be horizontal mambo!

Disturbing…mental…image…

The kids will all have flown the nest by then, will they?


#371

They will probably be replaced by others. A friend was reminding me I had said that, after losing Toto and PangPang, I was not going to get any more cats or dogs, not a single one more… I tempted fate with that statement, so I will not say never again.


#372

My family members live a long time, centenarians or at least 90 something. As I said, constant activity leads to a prolonged life. You choose the activity.


#373

Um… Shuffleboard? Power walking? Putt-putt golf?


#374

Grandma Peng killed her own pigs -full grown ones, no lechoncitos- by herself, and she was 83. I must do my ancestors proud. Nothing less than climbing Yushan or biking around Taiwan.


#375

That’s what I mean – 3rd generation, 4th generation, whichever one it is when you’re in your golden years, won’t they still need you?

:cat: “Where’s Hoo-man? Doesn’t she know it’s feeding time?”
:dog: “Probbly out in the palm grove with her mambo teacher again…”


#376

I just saw this on Facebook and this guy apparently isn’t a monk or a priest. He’s from Kyrgyzstan (sporcle’s favourite country) and he just got the citizenship here without renouncing his own. Does anyone know him?


#377

Is this a trusted source? This may require some digging.


#378

A Kyrgyz IT guy was mentioned in one of the reports (which I linked to 26 posts above), along with 4 professors. I assume it’s the same person.


#379

The article is mistaken. To the best of my knowledge she doesn’t still teach there. I should know, I teach there and was even at that ceremony. She serves more in an advisory role/ unofficial figurehead and advocate position.


#380

But she still raps people’s hands with a ruler.
