Just the normal questions that Chinese ask foreigners: What country you from? Why you country harm China? In you country, you have pencils? In you country you have computers? (ad infinitum) Why you skin so white? Why you nose so big?, etc.

Derek's questions are pretty accurate, although for me, instead of "Do you like Chinese girls?" I hear "Do you have a boyfriend?" And don't forget the question "Do you like Chinese food?"

Pretty much the same for me, also. The three most common being, "Where are you from?" "Do you love China?" and "Do you eat Chinese food."

Now, since I pretty much know what is going to be asked, I like to ask them the same thing back (it works well with kids), like when they say, "What country are you from," and I tell them, I also ask them, "What country are you from?" The look on most of their faces is priceless as they hesitate for a moment and say..."China?"

I also ask them first if they like Chinese food. And if they can use kwaizi. All in good fun.

"Are you marry?"

"Do you have rice in England?"

"Why you so fat?"

One of my favourites was - "In England, do you buy your underwears in the market or online?"

And a typical Hunan question is "do you like spicy food?"

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
