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:Grow old? I'm already old so perhaps I will grow older. Yes, I will probably not go back. I live in a very small nation of 5.4 million people where 2.4 of them are foreigners. Total country land area is 660 sq kms, about 7 times smaller than Hainan Island. While China isn't as developed I find that I have more space here, even with 1.4 billion people. I have more opportunities here and since I am also of Chinese decent, I blend in easily. So yes, I will probably marry someone here and die here. But I'll probably kill myself than to land in an old age home.  -- louischuahm
