Q: Gift suggestions for Chinese gf and family

Gift suggestions for my gf and her family.

I'm in Canada, and travelling to China to meet with them, would like to bring a few gifts. Specifically, items that I should buy in Canada to bring. Probably not clothes, books electronics, but other suggestions would be appreciated.

Well, I was thinking, for the sake of originality, you may bring that Huawei Meng lady back to China. I'm just kidding. Give them money and let them buy themselves what they can.

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
