Taipei. A young Taiwanese man has written
seven hundred love letters to his girlfriend
over the past two years — trying to get her to marry him.
His persistence finally brought him results.
A newspaper reported yesterday the girl has
become engaged to the postman who
delivered all of those letters.

Taipei. Un jeune Taïwanais a écrit
sept cents lettres d'amour à sa petite amie
ces deux dernières années -- en essayant de la convaincre de l'épouser.
Son insistance finalement lui a apporté des résultats.
Un journal rapportait hier que la fille s'est
fiancée avec le facteur qui
lui avait apporté toutes ces lettres.
