China post. It is a little slow but it gets the job done providing you are just sending a letter. If you are sending a parcel I recommend a courier service. DHL is the most reliable and fast way in my experience but a little pricey.

most of everything here is prepaid, so bills are not mailed out to you and no junk mail, magazines can be ordered and picked up at the post office. a country of 1.4 billion functions without daily mail service, makes you wonder how necessary it really is in other countries.

I think, that was mistake to write address in Pinjin and characters. Usually, my address is written in Pinjin only.

I'm missing two letters/packages sent in Aug and Oct from EU. It was the first time, my (School's) address was written in characters, and also first time, I didn't receive it. Important pharma stuff.

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
