Q: Education,breaking the Law

I asked a question a few weeks ago, about finding a new school for my son in our local district .Thank you for the replies from people on the forum.Maybe with some help from a friend my son will be able to attend the same Primary school as his sister,make life easier 2 kids in same school.The problem I face is maybe they want 50,000 Rmb to line someones pocket.Should you just accept that's life here,or break the law.I will be interested in your answers,Lots of people have strong views on legal workers here and illlegal workers,breaking the Law etc.

I would just accept that that's how it is in China, if you want to put your child into a school you sometimes need to pay the price.


If you don't then someone else will probably be happy to pay up for their kid to take your son's place there.

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
