I was stupid today. I’m leaving Taiwan and went to First Bank to wire my money back home and close my account. Only when I had completed the form did I realize that I’d forgotten my passbook on my couch. They wouldn’t agree to wire it without my passbook, and that puts me in kind of a fix; I leave for Vietnam Sunday night and would rather not be traipsing around SE Asia for a month with NT140,000. Is there any place in Taipei that’ll let me wire it home on a Saturday (or Sunday…)? I can just get it out of the ATM in a couple installments if that’s the case, but no on I’ve talked to knows of a bank or anything that’s open during the weekend. Do you?
And if no one here knows of a place in this city that can do it, maybe someone knows of a place in Ho Chi Minh that will?
