Blending with the "Natives"

DO you?

Mostly for the old timer’s on F.com:
Have you “gone native?”

  1. Chew binlan?
  2. Eat Chou do fu?
  3. Relish the blood in Huo guo?
  4. Enjoy the inside joke with the aboriginals about the “Chinese” neighbors? THEM…lol
  5. Been mistaken for an aboriginal?
  6. Gizzards, liver and other entrails are rather delicious …" don’t think too much…eat"
  7. Eat the tentacles?
  8. Whisbey tastes good?
  9. Chow down on stuff you still haven’t a clue what it is in English?

:help:

3, 6,7,9, sure. Just food. Blood is good for woman!

Chou doufu, fuck now, that is just dirty, binlang, ewwwww.

5? I’m so white, I couldn’t even be mistaken for French.

  1. Yes. I thought the guy who gave it to me was poisoning me and I was going to end up in the danshui with heavy feet.
  2. Of course. I had to wait 8 years, but it’s not bad.
  3. Blood is okay.
  4. Yep.
  5. Uh, no. I have been asked for directions from a local when in a group of obvious Taiwanese people.
  6. Hakka make some pretty good stomach and intestine. Cow heart is not too bad.
  7. Do you mean testicles? I have drunk 3 penis wine if that counts.
  8. Never had that.
  9. Most of what I eat I am not sure how to say in English.

[quote=“SoulDragoN”]DO you?

  1. Chew binlan? - - NO!
  2. Eat Chou do fu? - NO!
  3. Relish the blood in Huo guo? - Its OK…depends who’s doing the cooking.
  4. Enjoy the inside joke with the aboriginals about the “Chinese” neighbors? THEM…lol - We laugh at everything & everybody - especially each other.
  5. Been mistaken for an aboriginal? - NO!
  6. Gizzards, liver and other entrails are rather delicious …" don’t think too much…eat" - Ate that stuff long before I came to Taiwan. No big deal.
  7. Eat the tentacles? - And the testicles too!
  8. Whisbey tastes good? - Not really. Nor does Poly B.
  9. Chow down on stuff you still haven’t a clue what it is in English? - Another dining habit of long standing.

I love the chou doufu.

What? No pi dan? . . . on silken tofu with some lovely shaved fishies and thick soy . . .

Actually, I hate gizzards. I’m a coward when it comes to offal. As for stinky tofu, I go through phases. Sometimes I like it, other times the smell makes me sick.

  2. Drag your feet as you walk
  3. Wear only blue sandals.
  4. Will wait in line at a certain restaurant.
  5. Give the peace sign when taking a pic

Will rephrase 13 for you.

  1. Will wait in line at a certain restaurant.
    [color=red]13. Will wait in a queue 3 blocks long to eat at a lu bian tan, because “oh look at all those people, it MUST be good! Can we go… pleeeze” [/color] :bouncy:

I’ve walked to the 7-11 at 3am smoking and wearing my sleeping shorts, white vest and blue sandals.

[quote=“Namahottie”]How about

  1. Ride on scooter with coat,raincoat,etc “backwards” -NO!
  2. Drag your feet as you walk - NO!
  3. Wear only blue sandals. - In public, only 1 time. My 83 yr old neighbor lady saw me, pointed at my feet and started laughing then threw her broom at me. She was joking of course.
  4. Will wait in line at a certain restaurant. - NO!..I don’t do lines at restaurants.
  5. Give the peace sign when taking a pic. - Only if it signifies ‘VICTORY!’[/quote]

Maybe the mods should tack this on the end of the “You know you’ve been in Taiwan too long when…” thread. Pretty much the same thing.

“You know you’ve been on Forumosa too long when you remember threads that veer into the same topic”

Heh heh heh…:smiley:

A lot of those things the average Taiwanese (at least in Taipei) does not necessarily do either. That looks more like the profile of a construction worker to me. Most people I know don’t chew betel nuts, drink Whisby or eat weird stuff.

…and what is soooo wrong with construction workers…? :ohreally:

Betcha they do!!..lol Just not when you’re around…

Cheers Namahottie for the additions.
