Q: How can I identify if I'm about to eat dog or cat meat?

Smell? Color? Texture? Should I put my ear to the kitchen door and listen for a meow?

If you're not sure of the meat, point at it and go "woof woof" the facial expression of the person that gave it to you will let you know. Wink Repeat with a "meow" if desired.

At the very least learn the characters. The word for dog sounds like "Go"

Im not worried about accidently ordering it. I can read a Chinese menu well well enough. I'm worried someone is going to try to slip it to me to save on prices because they think I dont know the difference.

which I dont :(

They advertise dog meat in very big characters. They make absolutely no secret about it. Look for 狗肉. In parts where it's popular you'll see signs for it everywhere. My understanding is that cat is mostly a Cantonese thing.

If it is served and you wolf it down it's dog. If you think it needs catsup - it's pussycat!!!

Dont think anyone will slip it too you to save money as it is dearer than pork or lamb I think and is looked on as a bit of a delicacy. I have given clear instructions to everyone who might help order food to not try to trick me into eating it. I am fairly adventurous but just cant bring myself to eat it. I even learned how to say I dont eat dog.
Dont no how to spell it in pinyin but it is pronounced like this. Wu boo chure go yo. One of the first and most important things I learned.

It'll taste like chicken. People have eaten dogs and cats for thousands of years. Accidentally eating a little every now and then won't hurt you.

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
