August 25, 2016 (Thursday PM, ET in the US)
Dear Taiwan members:
Greetings from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! I hope you are all doing fine.
My name is Victoriano Cabiles. I go by Victor.
I have been in the US for more than 15 years, and I am now a naturalized US citizen. For the most part, I am a bit bored of the US. I have traveled to more than 35 States, and I have lived/worked in 8 of them. Everything is pretty much the same - fast food chains, churches, banks, gas stations, grocery stores, drug stores, and supermarkets, among other things. Somehow, I have lost the excitement of living and working in the US. Not to mention I had to drive to practically anywhere I wanted to go. Oh, and the Winters could often be harsh. I am tired of wearing thermals and heavy clothing in the Winter time.
Therefore, I am taking a leap of faith, and relocating to Taipei, Taiwan by the end of October 2016. Taiwan is an intriguing place for me. I have been to most of South East Asia: Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, and Thailand. I am originally from the Philippines. From what I have heard, Taiwan is a beautiful and peaceful country, with a very efficient public transportation. Yes, I am tired of shoveling snow and getting the snow off my car.
I would like to connect with expats in Taipei. I am interested in meeting new people, and hopefully, making new friends. So, if you are currently living/working in Taipei, I would love to hear from you. I am also excited to learn Mandarin, and could use your advice on which school(s) to attend. Also, I could use some help in looking for a place to live. I would like to be in a lively environment; however, I would like to optimize my budget as well.
The best way to reach me is through **. I check that every day. Just put 'Taipei' on the subject line, so I know it is from Expat.Com.
Thank you very much, and I look forward to hearing from some of you!
