It is indeed China Airlines. You can download a program called AcarsLink that tells you all of the callsigns. My personal favorites are:

Elite - Canada 3000
Speedbird - BA
Flaxjet - Flexjet
Waterski - TWA Express

Not to put anybody down, but it could have been
an American pilot. China has B747's leased from
ATLAS that also include cockpit crew. I also believe
they use American pilots that are based in the U.S. and
they fly back and forth to Taiwan. Cathay also has this type of arrangements....

Yes that is very true. CX was actually founded by either an American or an Australian I forgot which. They have many American pilots.
