    I went to the Philippines when I was in like 4th grade and all I can remember is seeing a skinned rabbit in the meat market and then getting my first migraine and my Korean uncle who practiced Chinese medicine shoving needles into my fingers and under my nails and screaming like a mother fucker then eventually feeling better

    Grandy what is the catch to living where ur at?

    my Aussie friends tried to get me to live there (better gubbamint, environment, working class isn't treated like shit, you can actually get health care, better culture/people, etc) but then u get to the catch of gas/groceries are expensive as hell, there's flying spiders lmao, basically everything is expensive, it's hard to ship or have things delivered, cost of living is expensive, houses are tiny, etc.

    My few days in Taiwan in 2018 were nice. Scooters and 7-11's literally everywhere. Everyone felt fake though. Super nice, but not so believable.

    I've been interested in becoming an ex-pat for a little bit since my social mobility here is painfully low and the overton window / authoritarian shift is really unsettling.

    Did you marry into your residency / citizenship? I've had difficulty navigating a pathway, closest thing I've come to is to start a shell business in the U.S. and then use the Dutch American Friendship Treaty to buy myself a work permit in Holland and hope to find a low end job somewhere.

    I enjoyed our brief 4 month TZT Taiwan compound. Two young lads trying to figure it out in a gorgeous place, playing way too much league of legends

    I want this update whenever u get the time, Grandy.

    My family situation makes it complicated, but my motivation to move from this country has increased tenfold after watching our gubbamint handle a pandemic.

    Also most things about Taiwan sound dreamy except 4 the crowdedness + having pooh bear maybe have a bad day and incinerate your country in a fit of anger.
