Q: curious.. buy the whole fish and a handfull of rice or??

my wife and daughter have embraced sushi (very Japanese?) as a delightful meal.when eaten at a brand new delightful restaurant. but if I bring a fish home and slice it to be boneless and attempt to join it with a little rice and a little mayonnaise or chilli sauce or any other flavour thing.....well, it is just not the same......  they would rather pay the extravagant fees for the privilege of being in an overcrowded, overstaffed but incompetent silly place. I like the sushi places here... and like to go out somedays.....  mine is better.

great fish market here..

Maybe it's a status/face thing.  Sushi is expensive and luxurious, therefore being seen to eat it in public gives them great face.  For you it's all about the taste, they probably couldn't care less about that.


I had a similar thing with wine once, I planned to have a decent bottle with dinner at home with my ex.  She said if it was good wine we should go out to drink it.  She tried to tell me it's all about who sees you drink it that is important, and when I explained I really don't care about that it didn't seem to compute with her.  Needless to say we drank it anyway.

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
