Q: What booze to take home?

Brought a supposedly good bottle of baijiu last year...its sucked.

Have you tried any of the fruit wines here - wolfberry, mulberry, lychee...or any of the huangjiu any good?

Something that tastes 'more normal' smiley

I don't think there is any good baijiu and that it always so bad so you chug it. I brought some home, bought it cause the bottle looked nice. When I checked my bags, they said something about beer and took me off to the side to open my bag. It was an empty coke bottle I took for a souvenir. Is beer not allowed?

I usually go for things like belts/wallets/handbags as gifts.  Also those hawberry sweets are good for mass gifts.  Baijiu is ok for vodka drinkers but not beer drinkers.  For ok'ish baijiu try xiao dao or red star or something.  Don't buy anyone moutai unless they're Chinese or Mexican - tequila drinkers can handle that sh*t too.

A:I reckon that there is a problem with overpopulation, but also an issue with this population focusing on the Eastern regions.  However, right now there is a bigger problem as the share of the population that is older and retired is going to increase to a point where it will be hard for the younger generation to support/fund those who aren't contributing to the economy economically.  One-child policy reform came too late!  -- sm90
