Many Taiwanese, including TV anchors and reporters, said that PRC in fact is very poor and her people cannot afford instant noodles, not to mention tea leave eggs.

In fact, this information appears on Taiwan TV programs all the time.

Taiwan is so wealthy, and PRC under communism is so poor.

They keep misleading themselves, while Shenzhen's per capita GDP surpassed Taiwan's last year.

Deep in DPP's heart land of southern Taiwan, the rural people's living standard is now lower than the mainland's Pearl River Delta Region.

Do some traveling and you'll see it for yourself.

Hmmm...shenzhen is doing very well, but I don't think it is quite at Taiwan GDP yet. Maybe in 2014 it will equal Taiwan, if Taiwan still haven't signed that service pact, which is critical to its GDP growth.

Yes, if you look at south of Taiwan which is dominated by DPP, the economy hasn't grown much or indeed been stagnant. Kaohsiung for example, has been sliding among the five metropolis. Those DPP just don't understand economy, only know how to protest. But it will be wrong to judge place like Tainan on the surface. The south Taiwanese, especially the younger generations are all overseas or in Taipei, and a huge proportion is comfortably in the upper middle class, with considerably wealth.

Either way, all can comfortably afford noodles and eggs. I think China on the whole has emerged from the era when people have to starve. Compared this to Philippines today where slumdogs eat recycled food, given Philippines was the second biggest economy in Asia after WWII.

yes Triple A, have to agree with you, at least the first part of your statement, where you imply that Rayhole is wanking himself to often, and becoming very light headed and lenient with the truth.
If he wants to compare the wealth of cities. Taibei is the second richest city in Asia after Singapore, and we have 6 cities that are richer that his (TWese owned) Shenzhen.
Plz don't worry about the protests,, as soon as we rid ourselves of the lame horse. and forget about china, then we will dig ourselves out of the rut the china friendly KMT have put us in, and compete again on a level playing field

For Taiwan's sake, sign that service pact. Yes, there will be compromise, but benefits outweighs the sacrifice, that is the basis of economy...You trade for overall advantage. Have faith in Taiwanese companies, they can adapt, just give them the breathing space.
Seriously, DPP needs to stop that Yi Shi xing tai. Taiwan is a trading nation, it is in its blood to trade. If you restrict trades and don't have FTA , it will die slowly. Look at kaoshiong, from top metropolis after Taipei to a pile of shit after years under DPP. In a few years time when China's GDP grows further, you will have no more bargaining power, so sign the damn agreement now.

Bill-tard: Taiwan's GDP grew by a total of 1% during 8 years of Chen Shui-bian's mis-rule. If DPP wins in 2016, Taiwan's economy is Game Over.

it's hard boiled eggs. You boil your eggs normally. Once it's done, you hit the eggs on the table to make cracks. Then put the eggs back to the pot and this time add tea leaves, salt into the water. Boil them again. Voila you have tea leave eggs.

Is Taiwan not an independent country?

If Taiwanese do not want to trade with China, they should not sign any agreement with China.

Yes Yes, ShenZhen has an impressive GDP growth, but at less than 20,000 USD per capita, it is still less than Taiwan average, not to mention Taipei and other cities. If you really want to show off Chinese city GDP, few of the prefectures in inner mongolia and Heilongjiang are over 20,000 USD per capita.

But please don't read this wrongly. I believe China will continue with relative admirable growth rate, amid the slow down. If Taiwan DPP really win the next election, then they will need to have some decent China and economy policy. I feel the need to have some good words with old friends William Lai and Annette Lu, but I think changing the culture in DPP will take some time.

In Singapore watching TV with a crowd of Taiwanese students in black demonstrating near Presidential office. Very different to Kiev or Egypt, it's like a open air pop concert, everybody is so happy. No wonder DPP supporters love demonstrating.

Taiwan's per capita GDP (nominal) last year was US$ 20,706.

DPP is Game Over as a political contender if they lose 2016. Time is not on their side.

Those protestors don't represent the majority in Taiwan. Those trade agreements are good for Taiwan's economy.
