Just 2 months ago she was being accused of having stolen newspapers from her college library, and now she’s getting as much coverage as her husband. The denim-wearing, cosmetics-averse working woman is the new darling of the Taiwan media. Apparently, her boyish short hair has now come into vogue as women are now asking to get the Zhou Mei-ching haircut. She insisted on taking the bus to work even after Ma was elected president but relunctantly gave in to the demand of the secret service people. I just think it’s a breath of fresh air to see a first lady who’s not into jewelry.
My wife commented that the local jewelery shops were already complaining that she was costing them business($$$'s) as the Taiwan fashion scene (imitators) were shifting to follow her (the latest fad) lead.
Personally I like her and think its going to be an interesting story as time goes on.
She is a sharp woman.
(and by pictures, I don’t mean pictures of sheep)
can’t you see urodacus’ pic of Xinyi on a Saturday afternoon?

Not very first-ladylike I must say.
Not very hot, either, in my opinion. I saw her on TV last night and thought she was fairly unattractive. Not like Annette Lu, mind you, but . . . .
Personally, I prefer France’s first lady.
I fancy Mrs. Ma in here denims. Besides, she’s kind to little doggies. That’s another thing I find attractive in a woman.
After seeing the OP I Googled Zhou Mei-ching to see what she looked like, and, well, I guess I should turn the “safe search” option on one of these days.
The news spent about ten minutes analyzing the clothes she wore to hubby’s inauguration–which looked almost exactly like everyone else’s.
Then they switched to a story about some dignitary who tripped and fell. Showed the clip of him falling six or seven times.

He fell down six or seven times??? Was he drunk or something?
No, just once–and they showed the clip of it six or seven times. Like Tele-Tubbies.
Wait… so you’re telling me Tinky Winky didn’t actually fall down six or seven times the other day either?
Damn. Video effects these days are too realistic.
Assuming the Tele-Tubbies to represent space aliens (well, they look like space aliens, and seem to live in a buried flying saucer–I suppose their mission must be to monitor our television broadcasts), then they could simply be having trouble with earth gravity.
So now she’s going to retire from her bank job and concentrate on being a proper first lady. She’ll attend official ceremonies, make small talk with foreign dignitaries, go to charitable events, and probably start promoting some cause for stray dogs. We probably won’t see her in denims for sometime. I kinda prefer seeing her as the independent career woman taking the morning bus to work.
And bug the other commuters who take the same route as her with constant media presence and other unwanted people (possible assassins)?
I wish she were able to be a bus-commuting, independent career woman too, but for the sake of those who take that bus to and from work and people at her work, I think she made the right decision.
Plus, there won’t be any conflict of interest with her, her President husband, and her workplace.
In 4 or 8 years, she can probably go back and be an independent career woman again.
You sure she made the decision? I doubt that very much. I suspect her husband or some KMT senior official made the decision for her. What’s a woman’s job when it comes to giving the president a good image?
Didn’t her brother also just recently retire as well. It’s probably for the best all those that are close to MYJ remove themselves from positions that might have a possible conflict of interest.
God knows the previous president didn’t care if their was a conflict of interest of those close to him.
yes, let us hop all the family of him and his wife retire from the positions they have.
Then again, I just reminded that all their kids are US citizens and will probably stay in US, to avoid conflict of interest.
Oh, poor poor her. Must be terrible being rich and powerful.
I wish my wife would get a better job, so I could hang out by the pool, go to the spa, and dabble in charitable causes, instead of working.
