Q: Are receipts proof that items are not fake?

I don't really get the whole fapiao (receipt) thing in China but it seems like only legit places can give you these. So is it accurate to assume that whatever you buy isn't a fake if they can give you a fapiao?

No,no~
That's for the government to get tax paid and people who bought that stuff get reimbursement from his/her company.

I think i bought fake phone too for 700RMB too. Weird! Still not sure because i went to the store with my receipt, and i will get a real one in a bit less than 3 month, so at that time i'll be able to say if phone is fake or not. I cross my finger it's not!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
