Q: Chinese idea's you took home ?

For me the best part of travel to other countries is seeing different things and concepts .
I had never seen a instant hot water system till I went to the UK about 11 years ago.
My favorite from China is the Bed head with Storage built into it.
Please share you're discoverys.

Something that makes complete sense to me now and I'll probably do the rest of my life is take my shoes off at the door. No outdoor shoes inside.

Ummm... 

 

Hmmm..... 

 

Oh, Chinese are much better at money management and saving. I got back to my home country and everyone always seems broke or living paycheck to paycheck.

 

So glad I got away from that way of living and got to see a different view on how to manage my finances... now I never have to worry or complain about it like lots of people around here...

 

However the down side is everyone asks to borrow money because I don't complain and cry about it all the time.

I now buy loose leaf tea and never use tea bags. My favourite green tea is mao jian. My Chinese friend was amazed I knew about tea varieties and not just "green" tea.

 

Sadly despite my new found knowledge I've not persuaded a single person to swap tea bags with loose tea.

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
