  1. nice new tv? which model is that? where did u buy it? can u do a review for
    us, also the bed is in the center now, wow, dont u fall off sometimes, and
    where did u move your computer desk now? is that a red bread toaster in
    living room next to the plant?

  2. I love Taichung and your apartment ๐Ÿ™‚ love it ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Wooow it does look much nicer without all the clutter and stuff!

  4. Yes; the former tenant was a hoarder. I found around 50 empty cardboard
    boxes, from jewelry boxes to shoeboxes, when I cleaned the place up. It
    took me around a week to go through everything she left, but it took me
    five months to get it the way you see it here.

  5. I am mostly likely moving to Taichung, if not, Taipei, but that’s a pretty
    large apartment you got considering it’s in Taiwan. My main concern is that
    I want to live on ground level, but it’s almost impossible to find a place
    available that’s not up a bunch of floors.

  6. You’ll never find a ground-floor place – ground floors are too expensive to
    be feasible – they’re all occupied by businesses. Why do you want a
    ground-floor apartment? My place is on the 12th and it’s much nicer/quieter
    than when I lived on 4th and 5th floors of other buildings.

  7. Thanks!

  8. hey man may be we can meet when I go back to Taichung ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey there, can I ask what website you used to find an apartment in
    Taichung? Iยดm looking into possibly moving there next year. Your apartment
    is super cool! How do you like living in Taichung? Thanks in advance!

  10. I found it on Tealit, and it was very good luck that I did. You can always
    hire an agent, here, to find you a place – US$60 to have them hunt until
    they find you something. If you want to check out other info about living
    in Taiwan, you should read my blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Hey, I am an American who just moved to Taichung. I absolutely love it so
    far. I am actually using my Taiwanese wife’s account to leave this comment.
    I watched all of your videos and read your blog’s before coming here, and
    they helped tremendously. I am now currently looking for an apartment here
    in Taichung. Maybe I will run into you one of these days.

  12. Thanks! I appreciate the feedback! ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck in Taichung; it’s a great

  13. cool video! did you get any vaccinations before going to taichung? i am
    going for 6 months in december. ่ฌ่ฌ

  14. I ate some salmonella typhi and got a shot of Hep A…but I’m not really
    sure it was necessary. You can look at the CDC website and find out what
    they recommend. But the fact is, you should just prepare yourself for
    random GI problems here: that’s about it, though. Almost all the stuff
    foreigners deal with has to do with the food they eat. I rarely eat
    somewhere if I can’t see the kitchen.

  15. good to know, thanks! From what I’ve read online it either says “don’t eat
    at street vendors at all”, or “only go to places where lots of natives are
    eating”, what is your stance? Are night markets considered street vendors?

  16. If I look at someone selling food – look at their setup – and think “I’d
    cook here,” then I eat there. Unless you stick to higher-end places, you’re
    just going to come across stuff. My first year in-country, I had GI issues
    twice a month, on average.
