Sadly, what +Ed Greshko says is so true. Driving according to the (real) rules can get you into accidents more easily.

Get on the bus: How blood donation in Taiwan works.

Good question. No idea. Although they do blood tests of all people who donate. It shouldn't be an issue for any foreigners to donate. I've been donating every three months for 8 years.

Another example of discrimination.  Even though I have an APRC and have lived here for 23 years I am not eligible for a discount MRT card when I reach the qualifying age.  Also, when we bought our home and applied for a mortgage I was told my salary wouldn't be taken into account to determine the approved loan amount.

Wieso hat Taiwan eigentlich nicht genügend Trinkwasser?
 ·  Translate
Wie kann eine so fruchtbare Insel Wassermangel haben? Es ist ja nicht so, dass wir in Taiwan unter Trockenheit leiden. Gäbe es keine Menschen, wäre die ganze Insel von dichtem, grünem Wald überzogen.

Klar und Putin will friedlich Wiedervereinigung mit der Ukraine (oder am besten auch gleich mit allem anderen erhalten Staaten der Sowjetunion) ...
Wenn Taiwan dazu das jetzige politische System aufgeben müssten um dann der Volksrepublik China beizutreten (was einer Anektion gleichen würde) wird das wohl nichts.

Travel bloggers in Taiwan, interviewing each other.

Anyone who does not know how to behave can be blocked without further warning.
