Taiwanese singer accused of bad ‘table manners’

JolinTsaiHUNAN, China -  Taiwan singer Show Luo revealed that fellow Taiwan singer Jolin Tsai has bad manners at the mahjong table, during an appearance on a Chinese variety show on Thursday, reported Chinese media. "That woman [Tsai] refuses to accept defeat and we cannot let her lose [at mahjong], because if she loses, we would be in trouble.

"She will ask us to keep playing till she wins," said Luo with a laugh. "But when she wins, she will happily walk away."
"If the people playing with her take too long to play their tiles, she'll scowl."

Nails

Luo went on to describe how Tsai's penchant for beautifying her nails drove the people playing mahjong with her crazy.
"Jolin likes to decorate her nails so she never shuffles the mahjong tiles herself and gets someone else to do it.
"She also a habit of tapping her fake nails on the table whenever someone is slow and the noise annoys everyone," said Luo, doing an impression of Tsai's annoying habit.

No romance

Although Luo appears to know Tsai a little too well, the 31-year-old maintained they were just friends and that there was no romance between them.
"There are some people whom you just know will be great buddies with you," said Luo.
The pair routinely reveal nuggets of information about each other - Luo's revelation of Tsai's mahjong habits follows Tsai's statement in March that Luo is a very poor drinker, and that he once collapsed after sipping just a little red wine.
