It's Raining

OK, so you all know that my main love is Wu Bai. But this is not to say that I don't appreciate other beautiful men ;) The latest, greatest craze to hit Taiwan is a young man (only 23, darn it) from Korea who goes by the name of Rain. I'm not awfully interested in his music, but I sure can appreciate his body! Here's a little something to make you drool a bit :) This guy is hoping to break into the US market, so maybe someday you'll see him over there. He dances pretty darned good (saw a video playing at the underground shopping mall), and I suppose his singing isn't bad, just not my style of music.

I know it's a waste of time wishing for this, but I would like to see Wu Bai parade around with a shirt once in awhile. Sure, he doesn't have a perfect body, but I just so happen to like his body and wouldn't mind seeing it once in awhile, not covered up by long, baggy shirts.

And now on to the bitch session: I hate the system. Today I went to apply for my residency visa. I had to bring a bunch of papers that the school gave me, and they also wanted a bank statement. My bank issues a statement once a month, at the beginning of the month, so all I had was the one dated August 31, 2005. Now, I have enough money in the bank to live comfortably in Taiwan for at least five years. So I take this statement to the visa office, and they whine about it being dated three weeks ago. Hello? Do you think I could possibly have spent that much money in three weeks? Do you suppose it might have vanished into thin air? Did I give it away to charity? I think not. Regardless, I have to give them something with a more current date. On top of that, one of the papers the school gave me was wrong, listed dates that have already passed and not showing that my tuition is paid through December 25. Nevermind that I had the letter from the school that said I was enrolled through then, nor the fact that I had my receipt for paying said tuition. No, I have to go back to the school and get the correct paper. Sheesh! So, I gave it up for today and decided to just wait until my September bank statement is online, which will be around October 5. My current visa is good through November 17, so no hurry anyway.

Time to go coach Guoxi with his English....

Huttah! That Rain can eat crackers in my bed anytime. ;)

Geez, I can't believe how picky MOFA are being, tell 'em they're a bunch of mofos. Did they get all shitty because the statement came from a foreign bank account?

If I'm not mistaken, Rain had a concert here in LA right before summer. There were a string of Koren concert and he was in one of them.

He is extremely popular in Korea. As a matter of fact, my acupunturist's Mom just love him.

My friend and I agree he most definitely has charisma.
