Yeah! Go to any foreign store (Metro - German; Carrefour - French etc) or check out Jenny Lou's - you can get ANYTHING foreign there (see link below), but expect to pay very high prices.

I was in Watson's the other day and pleasantly surprised at their vastly expanded selection of imported deodorants. I went to the one by the Lido Hotel and they stocked at least 15-20 different deodorants, including sprays and roll-ons, for both men and women, and they cost between 20-30 rmb. A few years ago, you would have been lucky to find even one type of deo in a shop here. So next time you see a Watson's, make sure to check it out. They also stock other imported goods like cosmetics, toiletries and even chocolate.

Jenny Lou's is your best bet sometimes a little expencive but good stuff especially chese

Carrfour sucks and who wants to support a store owned by the French Metro is a great store I would say after Jenny Lou's

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
