Even the cops are more friendly in Taiwan

That's the point about Taiwan, it's a peaceful place full of friendly people ! That's why I feel like being at home when I get there. When you compare with Beijing, the city where I am working and living, the contrast is obvious. Just an example: In Beijing, I pass by the convenience store before going to the office. Everyday I buy the same stuffs (One can of Red Bull to feed my brain and one snickers to feed my brain) but never I heard the staffs say hello or 欢迎 as I step in the shop. And they never smile (no feelings)... must be difficult to smile, right ? I always have to wait for a few seconds before they give me the bill (slow reaction) and I ALWAYS have to ask for a plastic bag, which is annoying me as I hate to speak when I just wake up and haven't drink my coffee yet. Now, if you step into a 7-11 in Taiwan you will hear a smiling staff shouting the welcome at your attention so you are sure you cannot miss his point of welcoming you. I don't mention that there are more choice in Taiwan's 7-11 because it's not the point... but I think you get that point too, right ? At the counter, you have a quick and effective response and your stuffs get packed in the bag (which you have to pay, but it's a Government regulation to save the planet) quickly. Your change comes back together with your receipt (Always ask for a receipt in Beijing otherwise you never get one!). That's what I call great service ! It's not like in Beijing where you always have to scream at the staffs to get things done properly...
