Q: Chinese girls and photo taking

They seem adept for those studios where they take your pictures with all the glitter and fancy stuff, but as far as i noticed, they seem to get mad when you take a candid shot, like at the restaurant eating or waiting at the subway...

When i take picture of my girlfriend, i haz to ask permission and she's always doing a pose, like the "V" sign with the head slitghtly tilted on the side.

Is it something they learn in school? Is there a reason to it?

she likes doing a pose because she thinks it makes she look pretty .
so u could tell her that taking a candid shot of her is more pretty. i guess she will love it.
she loves u and wants to be always pretty in ur eyes.

Apparently it's 'cute', though it makes me retch.
Probably another cutesy saccharine import from Japan.

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
