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

Don't take any booze home with you. Why don't you go the healthier route and buy some orange juice. It is freshly squeezed and better for you. (Drunk!

 

He he, I said: "squeezed"!

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:Hear me out on this before calling me crazy - First of all, I am not praising the Chinese healthcare system. It is well-known that most doctors are unqualified (I work for a medical school and my boss estimates that 90% of doctors in the mainland are unqualified). Doctors regularly engage in overtreatment while running unnecessary tests and prescribing useless medicine. Antibiotics are grossly overprescribed and the the number of patients given unnecessary IV's is laughable.  These criticisms acknowledged, there is a certain efficiency in the system. When you need to see a doctor, there's no need to make an appointment. You go to the hospital, line up and within 20-30 minutes you can usually be seen by a doc. If tests are needed, you can quickly have the tests right then and there. Compare that to the systems in may western countries where you often have to wait lengthy periods of time to see a doctor. Then, when the doctor prescribes a test you have to wait an additional  time for that, it often takes longer to get the results and many doctors aren't even taking new patients in America due to the shortage of primary care physicians and certain specialists. I'm not saying the healthcare system in China is exemplary but it is efficient and generally meets the basic needs of a massive and mostly poor population in spite of its major shortcomings. It would be nice if doctors were more accessible in America at least.  -- dongbeiren
