What surprises me is the lack of “romantic” things I’ve heard from Taiwanese I’ve dated. Personally, I think Chinese can be a very romantic, moving language … there is so much of this kind of stuff from the 2,000+ year literary tradition, and it’s always fun to say a few romantic lines of classical Chinese poetry to a loved one. Maybe it’s just I’ve dated all the wrong Taiwanese, but the most romantic I’ve heard is “I like you very much” or “Don’t forget your umbrella.” Sigh

I’m gravedigging a bit, but does anyone know if this is still in print?

Caves have a “Making out in Chinese”. I had it but gave it away…

Is it a street name? County?

Bookstore, also known as Eslite.

I tend it call it Chengpin too, because I’m unsure how to pronounce “Eslite”! “es-light”? “es-leet”? “elite”?

Ahh…I see.
Well I was just in Eslite in Gunguan and they didn’t have it there.

I saw a copy of that book (Making Out in Chinese) in Caves on Zhongshan N. Road just t’other day. To be honest, I picked up a copy ages ago and it’s not all that great. Most of the good stuff has been written elsewhere (including on this site).

Yeah, I know Making Out in Chinese is easy to find.
It’s Outrageous Chinese that I want.

Begging your pardon. Any excuse to sneak in a terrible pun.

Looks like you’ll have to order it off the internet then. I’d quite like a copy too.
