A Nippy Palm Sunday
Didn't do much in the afternoon, but for dinner, SK invited mum and I over for dinner. Watched a Taiwanese dating show on Astro. Eligible bachelors would turn up on stage for a bunch of single women to choose. Most of the women looked quite old for their age (with thick makeup and bad teeth). Couldn't quite believe my eyes. But entertaining none the less. Some of the men were handsome and tall. But when one such specimen started talking about his frugality, the women dropped him like a hot potato. And when a very cute Caucasian English teacher cum part-time model made an appearance, he nearly left without a date (but he s cute fumbling with his limited Mandarin vocabulary). Looking pretty aint' everything it seems. But I was most surprised when I saw that the busker I saw on my first night in Taipei was a contestant! LOL. Luckily he got a date (although he is short and has no job security), but truth be told, I think he can get better better women through the usual channels. :P.
