Q: How do you use those ear spoon things?

How far can you stick those metal ear spoons into your ear. I need to get my ears washed out, but, it seems like the Doctors here avoid this type of thing

Insert in to your ear. Press with the non rounded part against the inside of your ear. Pull out scraping. This collects wax and dead skin.

Its not SO different from a Qtip. But BE CAREFUL! Its easy to damage the inside of your ear. If you can, just avoid sticking things in your ear.

I had to have some major blockage in my ear removed recently and the doctors were able to handle it just fine. Now, they did kind of laugh at me because its a "laowai" problem. But they CAN do it. Maybe try another hospital and see what they say.

You could simply use whatever form of ear cleaner you are used to, i.e. I spied Q-tips in my local supermarket and purchased a few packs.

We all know Q-tips are not good for your ears. The spoon is better but far from the best alternative. Get a Chinese friend to help you and by a spay for your ear to dissolve the wax. This is the best way really.

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
