While I am escorted to the premium lounge - comped, of course.

2018-01-03 09:03:12 UTC

My passport is LITERALLY the center of the world, and people know and respect that

2018-01-03 09:03:33 UTC

So you can keep your EU little pamphlets , I'm good

2018-01-03 09:34:00 UTC

as a frequent traveler who often encounter Americans : I often see Americans waving their passports expecting to be treated in a special way and airport staff just shaking their head.
that might work in shitholes .... you know, the shitholes I don't need a visa for ;^)

2018-01-03 11:31:24 UTC

Y-y-y-youre just jealous! I get it. i-i-it must hurt being a europoor. Heh, I bet English isn't even your first language

2018-01-03 11:31:41 UTC

As if any of the other useless languages matter

2018-01-03 11:31:54 UTC

I speak to god in English why would I need to know anything else

2018-01-03 12:11:32 UTC

I've had acquaintences receive US passports and the brochure they give you literally says "the world is yours"

2018-01-03 12:13:07 UTC

yup

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/248100475054850050/398086372990255114/Passport-with-brochure-2.jpg

2018-01-03 12:18:33 UTC

is true tho
korean femoids in foreigners admire the passport the most

2018-01-03 13:30:09 UTC

Hell yeah

2018-01-03 13:30:15 UTC

Look at that fucking eagle

2018-01-03 13:30:23 UTC

๐Ÿฆ…

2018-01-03 13:34:27 UTC

imagine having a chink passport and not being allowed anywhere

2018-01-03 13:35:02 UTC

chinks aren't even allowed to move freely in their own country

2018-01-03 13:39:28 UTC

It's true. Their hukou ID system is completely fucked

2018-01-03 13:40:36 UTC

My fiancee is from a 2nd teir city, but her mom is from a 3rd tier city. Population 11mil and 9mil. But because of the classification, fiancee can travel to Taiwan and Hong Kong alone, but the mom MUST use a travel agency and go in huge group

2018-01-03 13:40:55 UTC

That's the main reason why chinks are always in travel groups, because they have to.

2018-01-03 13:41:30 UTC

What's the reasoning for that

2018-01-03 13:41:47 UTC

Probably people from smaller cities are more likely to bail on the country

2018-01-03 13:42:01 UTC

But there are rich people in smaller cities and poor people in the big ones

2018-01-03 13:42:03 UTC

not showing the world how uncivilised lower tier population is

2018-01-03 13:42:08 UTC

So it doesn't always work like that

2018-01-03 13:42:37 UTC

And you can't do a lot of stuff outside of your birth city. Especially education. You MUST do the schooling where you were born

2018-01-03 13:42:55 UTC

So much regulations to keep people from moving

2018-01-03 13:44:47 UTC

it's a shame you can't enjoy living in a tiny village in China without huge drawbacks. I lived in a tiny 600 people mountain village in Switzerland for 3 years and it was beautiful. I bet such tiny Chinese villages are beautiful, too

2018-01-03 13:45:52 UTC

at least the Taiwanese ones are, I've seen beautiful unknown Taiwanese villages, mostly in central Taiwan. Beautiful places that remind you of early 1900s Asia stereotypes

2018-01-03 13:46:10 UTC

how can it be so unknown if the island is so tiny

2018-01-03 13:46:36 UTC

there are a lot of tiny towns that no-one gives a fuck about tbh

2018-01-03 13:46:48 UTC

every tourist goes only to taipei?

2018-01-03 13:47:17 UTC

Hualien had the most (white) tourists per capita from what I've seen

2018-01-03 13:47:26 UTC

because of the huge national park

2018-01-03 13:47:34 UTC

then obv. Taipei and Kaohsiung

2018-01-03 13:47:57 UTC

I also saw a few tourists in Tainan, but otherwise there are no tourists

2018-01-03 13:48:01 UTC

with 100k citizens it's highly likely

2018-01-03 13:50:28 UTC

But really Hualien is worth it

2018-01-03 13:52:39 UTC

a place in Taiwan with barely any international tourists but a lot of Taiwanese going there for a day-off trip from other cities, is luodong

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luodong

- most amazing night market of Taiwan full of obscure and untrustworthy delicacies
- springs to let fish bite your feet and call it wellness
- great cheap food (we feasted in a traditional Taiwanese restaurant, all night, many tiny dishes, a lot of drinks, 18$ total)

2018-01-03 13:53:31 UTC

need to know chink tho, no?

2018-01-03 13:54:08 UTC

yes no-one speaks English in those places, it's a shame, but you can just use tinder or interpals to find a cute local girl to show you around kek

2018-01-03 13:54:23 UTC

or learn Chinese, beautiful language. Especially the colorful profanity

2018-01-03 13:55:00 UTC

sorry I'm a slav I can't find a cute girl :\ well never going to taiwan then

2018-01-03 13:55:38 UTC

learn Chinese, @kaetaa will help you

2018-01-03 13:55:56 UTC

I think Chinese language is ugly though

2018-01-03 13:55:59 UTC

I've grown to hate it

2018-01-03 13:56:08 UTC

Since it's always barked at in loud volumes at all time

2018-01-03 13:57:51 UTC

ไบŒๅฑ„, lit. "double vagina": inbred, cunt

2018-01-03 13:58:02 UTC

Chinese insults are beautiful

2018-01-03 13:59:50 UTC

Fujiwara's Tofu Shop now sounds very fishy

2018-01-03 14:03:54 UTC

"eating (someone's) tofu" is also used to describe "touching" a girl in a sexual way

2018-01-03 15:25:09 UTC

America is the greatest nation in the history of the world. If America disappeared today, the world would be in ruins

2018-01-04 00:58:13 UTC

remember that USA won ww2 for the world

2018-01-04 01:54:47 UTC

Yep. Undefeated since 1776

2018-01-04 01:56:23 UTC

Who would win: the entire British army

2018-01-04 01:56:29 UTC

Or a couple of Scrappy Bois

2018-01-04 10:59:31 UTC

and look at vietnam now, its thriving

2018-01-04 10:59:34 UTC

just like the US

2018-01-04 10:59:39 UTC

we won the fuck out of that war

2018-01-04 10:59:47 UTC

have you tried pho? its delicious

2018-01-04 21:01:26 UTC

Pho is dogshit

2018-01-04 21:07:25 UTC

vietnamese cuisine is a one trick pony. It's really just pho

2018-01-04 21:10:33 UTC

my fave local chinese restaurant is actually owned by a vietnamese family, take that chinks

2018-01-04 21:22:42 UTC

Its beef broth and rice noodles

2018-01-04 23:02:43 UTC

>vietnamese family

2018-01-04 23:02:52 UTC

as in actual viets or...?

2018-01-04 23:03:05 UTC

vietnam actually has quite an established chink disapora

2018-01-04 23:03:51 UTC

I actually have relatives there

2018-01-04 23:06:19 UTC

Fucking chinks need to go back instead of complaining about china and then doing chinese things in thier diaspora countries.

2018-01-04 23:09:11 UTC

disapora chinks are quite different from modern day mainland chinks

2018-01-04 23:09:36 UTC

No, mostly the same.

2018-01-04 23:09:44 UTC

the ones in southeast asian disapora usually have been there for generations and left china to escape the communist party

2018-01-04 23:09:59 UTC

so the cultural revolution didn't affect them

2018-01-04 23:10:34 UTC

See them all the time in Chinatown, one person speaks english in ten and maybe one fluent in twenty.

2018-01-04 23:12:41 UTC

integration in the western world is another issue entirely, and yes, they do tend to isolate themselves in communities like that in the west

2018-01-04 23:14:51 UTC

when we're talking about ordinary ones without much skill, chances are that they already know someone who can set them up within their chink businesses

2018-01-04 23:14:57 UTC

don't need to know much english for that

2018-01-04 23:15:03 UTC

t. seen this happen firsthand

2018-01-04 23:16:51 UTC

on the other hand, I've met some chinks where I live now who are pretty well integrated and speak english to a reasonable level

2018-01-04 23:16:59 UTC

i.e. the ones who work in the service industry

2018-01-04 23:17:45 UTC

They don't raise thier kids for it either, Koreans and Japs intergrate in a generation. Chinks take maybe two if that.

2018-01-05 02:10:20 UTC

There's more than pho

2018-01-05 03:11:59 UTC

trust me, chinks outside of mainland are 100x better than mainland chinks

2018-01-05 03:33:56 UTC

pho is good

2018-01-05 19:36:27 UTC

@BIRDzone good luck charm

2018-01-05 20:19:25 UTC

@BIRDzone The carp fish is a commonly seen visual pun because the Chinese character for carp (li ้ฒค) is pronounced the same as both the character (li ๅˆฉ) for "profit" and the character (li ๅŠ›) for "strength" or "power".
The carp is also a symbol for an abundance of children because it produces many eggs.
A pair of carp symbolizes a harmonious marriage.
A frequently seen image is of a carp swimming and leaping against the current of a river to reach the spawning grounds. This refers to the legend (liyutiaolongmen ้ฒค้ฑผ่ทณ้พ™้—จ) that a carp which is able to leap over the mythical "Dragon Gate" will become a dragon. This is an allegory for the persistent effort needed to overcome obstacles.

2018-01-05 22:24:49 UTC

@Tribit cool! thanks

2018-01-06 07:33:51 UTC

Could also be a misunderstanding.

2018-01-06 07:34:01 UTC

"Add some crap to the order" -> "Okay, I'll add some carp".

2018-01-06 09:51:14 UTC

I've gotten a qt reindeer as a gift from the chinks

tfw you're half chinese but your non-chinese co worker knows mandarin better than you

2018-01-07 10:23:33 UTC

eh i think it's the case with many nationalities
bet most gyopos speak korean worse than your typical fat white koreaboo

2018-01-07 13:35:32 UTC

Do Koreaboos really exist ?

2018-01-07 13:35:57 UTC

I hear about them often but never met one, although I have met a lot of weebs

2018-01-07 13:38:27 UTC

Probably boos for everything. All sorts of people aint totally right in the head.

2018-01-07 13:39:25 UTC

mostly fat white females who want to dance kpop
otherwise not really as there's no culture in korea

2018-01-07 13:46:46 UTC

I'd like to visit. Maybe live there for a while. Nothing permanent though.

2018-01-07 13:48:00 UTC

a shithole yes

2018-01-07 13:48:09 UTC

but has its own character

2018-01-07 13:52:39 UTC

@kaetaa Koreaboos are a huge thing in France

2018-01-07 13:53:29 UTC

Every teenage girl is learning Korean. It's disgusting

2018-01-07 13:53:36 UTC

why

2018-01-07 13:53:51 UTC

Why what? Disgusting or learning?

2018-01-07 13:53:57 UTC

eh

2018-01-07 13:54:06 UTC

you have perfectly fine japan for being a weeb

2018-01-07 13:54:19 UTC

has lots of culture, nice sceneries, unique temples

2018-01-07 13:54:25 UTC

clean streets

2018-01-07 13:54:33 UTC

Being a weeb is more a male thing because Japan is full of culture etc

2018-01-07 13:54:34 UTC

and yet they choose dirty korea without history

2018-01-07 13:54:41 UTC

Koreaboos are female because of kpop

2018-01-07 13:54:48 UTC

with culture being a mashup of jap and murica

2018-01-07 13:55:01 UTC

Once again females proven stupid af

2018-01-07 13:55:07 UTC

fokin femoids reeee

2018-01-07 13:55:17 UTC

r9k was right all along and we've been ignoring them

2018-01-07 16:39:56 UTC

Do chinaboos exist?

2018-01-07 16:40:33 UTC

The music and movies here are piss poor rip offs of other genres or just downright low quality shit.

2018-01-07 16:41:56 UTC

There are 4 types of tv shows here. 1. Singing (competition or otherwise) 2. Period drama (think qing Dynasty) 3. Wukong or other mythical Chinese stuff. (They will tell the same story over and over and over.). 4. Chinese killing Japanese soldiers for hours

2018-01-07 16:42:39 UTC

And that last one is a doozy. So many shows are like Chinese secret society where they are brilliant tacticians and destroy Japan from the inside during the war and they show Japanese as braindead monsters

2018-01-07 16:42:58 UTC

YOOO

2018-01-07 16:43:08 UTC

ANYONE BEEN TO TAIWAN

2018-01-07 16:43:13 UTC

Yes

2018-01-07 16:43:34 UTC

HOW MUCH NTD is good enough to buy shit around here?

2018-01-07 16:43:41 UTC

Is 300 NTD ok

2018-01-07 16:43:46 UTC

I was there for a week and @porco was there for a month I think. Also someone in here lives there at the moment I forgot

2018-01-07 16:44:01 UTC

What are you trying to buy

2018-01-07 16:44:03 UTC

Like what if you want a shirt, how much NTD

2018-01-07 16:44:40 UTC

I also want to pay for metro

2018-01-07 16:44:44 UTC

And some food

2018-01-07 16:44:49 UTC

Things are relatively cheap

2018-01-07 16:44:53 UTC

Food is dirt cheap

2018-01-07 16:44:57 UTC

Metro is dirt cheap

2018-01-07 16:45:13 UTC

Shirts depends what u want. Some souvenir shit ?

2018-01-07 16:45:23 UTC

Ye

2018-01-07 16:45:46 UTC

Then yeah you'll probably be fine with 300 NTD usually

2018-01-07 16:46:10 UTC

It's cheap, but not as cheap as Thailand

2018-01-07 16:46:10 UTC

Wait so what is the avg shirt cost

2018-01-07 16:46:22 UTC

I don't remember, I didn't buy any shirts

2018-01-07 16:46:24 UTC

My flight is in like 2 hrs

2018-01-07 16:46:41 UTC

Are you trying to convert the exact amount of cash to buy a single shirt

2018-01-07 16:46:46 UTC

Ye

2018-01-07 16:46:59 UTC

The airport takes foreign credit cards

2018-01-07 16:47:06 UTC

Fee?

2018-01-07 16:47:06 UTC

As for many big souvenirs shops

2018-01-07 16:47:15 UTC

Whatever fee your bank charges

2018-01-07 16:47:20 UTC

Mine doesn't charge

2018-01-07 16:47:31 UTC

Yeah but isn't it cheaper to go to the market

2018-01-07 16:47:42 UTC

Airport stuff is rly expensive

2018-01-07 16:47:52 UTC

Yeah but you are trying to figure out the exact amount before you get there for some reason

2018-01-07 16:48:05 UTC

My time in taiwan is only 6 hours

2018-01-07 16:48:32 UTC

I want to go to the Shilin market and then Taipei 101

2018-01-07 16:48:42 UTC

You don't have enough time

2018-01-07 16:48:53 UTC

Traffic?

2018-01-07 16:49:08 UTC

The airport isnt in city center

2018-01-07 16:49:15 UTC

And you have to go thru customs

And security when u come back

2018-01-07 16:49:25 UTC

I am going to touyang or something

2018-01-07 16:49:37 UTC

Airport

2018-01-07 16:49:40 UTC

It's not worth it. Just buy some shit at the airport

2018-01-07 16:49:46 UTC

They have good food too

2018-01-07 16:49:57 UTC

Damn

2018-01-07 16:50:10 UTC

I mean, you can try

2018-01-07 16:50:35 UTC

If you go just to Taipei 101 for an hour and back then yeah maybe

2018-01-07 16:50:52 UTC

Just know everything there is expensive

2018-01-07 16:50:56 UTC

Idk how to go. I have in mind going metro

2018-01-07 16:51:04 UTC

Or taxi

2018-01-07 16:51:09 UTC

Maybe you should have researched all this

2018-01-07 16:51:37 UTC

I sorta did lol a little but not extensively

2018-01-07 16:51:56 UTC

I only know 6 hours in taiwan

2018-01-07 16:52:01 UTC

And metro is fast

2018-01-07 16:52:24 UTC

Like less than an hour to places

2018-01-07 16:52:33 UTC

Pay easy card

2018-01-07 16:52:35 UTC

So you want to land, go thru customs, get your bag, convert money, take metro to Taipei 101, stand in line to go up, leave, go to market, take metro back to airport, security, customs, flight

2018-01-07 16:53:01 UTC

O tru

2018-01-07 16:53:05 UTC

It's possible but you'll probably be stressed lol

2018-01-07 16:53:08 UTC

Forgot about customs

2018-01-07 16:53:19 UTC

Where are u going after

2018-01-07 16:53:25 UTC

Maybe market is fine then

2018-01-07 16:53:54 UTC

Roam around market for 2 or 3 hours

2018-01-07 16:54:02 UTC

3 hours? Lel

2018-01-07 16:54:07 UTC

Is this your first time flying ?

2018-01-07 16:54:18 UTC

No lol

2018-01-07 16:54:37 UTC

I'm assuming your flight out is international

2018-01-07 16:54:43 UTC

Ye

2018-01-07 16:54:50 UTC

Which they usually stop booking like 90 minutes before

2018-01-07 16:55:00 UTC

Meaning you have to be at security before then

2018-01-07 16:55:11 UTC

After standing in line at ticket counter

2018-01-07 16:55:15 UTC

Oo

2018-01-07 16:55:36 UTC

*sweats*

2018-01-07 16:55:41 UTC

Where r u from

2018-01-07 16:55:49 UTC

Philippines

2018-01-07 16:56:24 UTC

Just stay in the airport, going out is a waste of time and money. I would suggest visiting Taiwan another time. 6 hours wouldn't do it justice

2018-01-07 16:56:34 UTC

Especially since phillipines is close by

2018-01-07 16:57:19 UTC

True guess you are right

2018-01-07 16:57:52 UTC

Probably roam around the airport then

2018-01-07 16:58:25 UTC

Gotta check of there are vendors or stuff outside

2018-01-07 16:58:39 UTC

2018-01-07 16:58:49 UTC

This is metro or bus from airport to Taipei 101

2018-01-07 16:59:01 UTC

Even a taxi would take 35 minutes

2018-01-07 16:59:43 UTC

It will probably take you 30-45 minutes to get out of the airport after u land

2018-01-07 16:59:46 UTC

With customs etc.

2018-01-07 17:01:37 UTC

Here is airport to the market you wanted

2018-01-07 17:08:27 UTC

@kaetaa holy shit thank you

2018-01-07 17:08:58 UTC

Looks like I can't make it after all

2018-01-07 17:15:44 UTC

Five DORRAH you pay now, PAY NOW

2018-01-07 17:35:40 UTC

Taoyuan is full of cheap prostitutes because of all the nerds working for the tech companies
