I’d like to hear what is the neatest or most unusual or most interesting thing you’ve gotten to do in Taiwan that you never would have gotten to do in your home country no matter what?
For example, I got to be a lounge singer in Taiwan (trust me, there are laws against people like me singing in public in the States!) and actually got tips for singing “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina”…my former housemate worked as a hand model, although she bit her nails almost to the elbows…and almost 20 years ago (when things were much simpler in Taiwan!)
My favorite “job” was working as “Miss Obi Swiss” in the then-new Asiaworld Shopping Plaza (white dress, beauty-queen banner, trying to get shoppers to try apple juice samples, which no one was willing to do in those days). I almost got caught one day when some German guy wanted to know where the peanut butter was…my high school German just barely got me out of it, although he certainly knew he was dealing with a fake Swiss miss…
