FWAH!
Hmm... Depends ba.
See if you think service good boh?
Even if you offer a drink, it's also tipping.

Do remember, you only meet them once, and not likely to return to them.
So i finds it tipping is not a must.
So it's not a must heh?
Cos I see 包车 always got tip
I dunno what to do

Do not be swayed by so called advice.
Give when you deem fit.

How to?
They wanna try leh... have to bring them
prepare this in sg, u have thermal flask right?

u place ju-hua. gan-cao, chen-pi, jin-yin-hua, pour hot water over. it will cool u down

drink that 1 day before flying and bring some dried ones and pour over after u have eaten the duck

but if already have a cold or flu, dun attempt the duck dish , later i sic u the eel


eel:

There is alot of places that serves eel in taichung, i wud suggest u go ichizen as it is very near to taichung station, alot of bus stops by there,
continue later, my net very slow today


sic:
大东屋日本活鳗店 总店
No. 236, Chaofu Road, Xitun District, Taichung City, Taiwan 407
(this one nearer to fengjia, can cab there)

Just to keep this on track.

Just transfer $$ to Taiwan using DBS.

DBS SG charge S$25 for Handle S$5 / Telex & Cable Charge S$20
When friend go taiwan bank take out $$ tio charge again. Charge USD$25
They want USD, so tio charge in USD

If your friend has DBS ATM card can withdraw TWD at DBS Taiwan ATM without charge, but the rate is lower than the money changer.

oh btw, the $$ was transfer in USD via IB (but $$ in bank is SGD le)

She want USD le..
which i dont understand.

I tot send NT will be better idea since $$ is going to draw out and using in taiwan?
not point to SGD to USD, to USD to NT. Still loss $$ one, NT drop or grow from USD also wont alot.

On other hand. I also did ask Taobao ppl how they charge hah..

S$1: RMB 4.8

如果是, RMB 4800 ?
4800*4.42匯率=21216-15銀行收取之手續費=21201台幣

银行会收,15台币的转账手续费
