Toilets:

I have never followed this rule. It is a problem in old houses and in my 22 years here, a toilet has never backed up anywhere!!!!

All New buildings have better plumbing e.t.c. but people here are still stuck with that outdated thinking., This is because, people throw a lot of other things in the toilet bowl other than Toilet paper - Garbage, Sanitary pads. Dead rats e.t.c.

Im in taipei now! Rain Rain Rain..Sian. From Singapore Rain till here.
lol. I saw the small little notice beside the toilet bowl as well in my hotel and i actually asked the receptionis(old and nice uncle) abt it coz i dont feel good abt the smell if i leave the soiled paper in the bin sia... anyway old uncle said, the sign say say only...

Oh yeah the Ding Tai Feng is nothing special but the XMMs workin there , even my gf said so. All ish good ones lol. I realised in Taiwan, everything has to use chinese, even hotel names famous cafes like hard rock cafe. Anyway, we couldnt find hard rock cafe, no body has an idea what hard rock cafe is around this area, even the tourism bureau pple dont know!Trust me, we went to an office mahciam their ministry of transportation cum tourism board. Only a few pple know it as Ying Shi Chang Ting and gave us directions here and there. Literally hard rock cafe. That explains why im here in the internet cafe, to look for the address of hard rock cafe. Actually ive already gotten the address but couldnt really find the place. THen, i realised hard rock cafe has closed down....sigh. Rain rain rain again.
