My Mandarin has finally improved to the point where I can actually understand my various voice mail options. I once had Benson translate the basic options, and all I remembered was that selecting "2" meant "delete." Today while listening to my voice mail, I pushed the wrong number by accident. By listening very carefully, I figured out how to change my menu to English. Upon doing that, I figured out how to leave a greeting! So now, if you call me, you'll actually hear me greeting you instead of silence.
This breakthrough comes after nearly nine months of mobile phone ownership.
Yup, the adventures in Taiwan never end.
