I was thinking about Singapore, the Philippines, Taiwan or possibly Thailand or Indonesia.

  I'd follow the plan I originally had before meeting my wife and go to Brazil. Plenty of work for an English teacher, plenty to see, plus I hear there's a place in the mountains of Peru that's great for spotting UFOs, which is like the Martian equivalent of train spotting.

If I could, I'd just return to my home country with my family. China is all windowdressing and keeping up appearances. I'd prefer to live in a stable country with a government and media that at least *tries* to treat people from all backgrounds with equal respect. Not openly favoring the rich, beautiful, powerful, national citizens and well-connected people. Who's my daddy? It really shouldn't matter. I'm skilled and competent, well-behaved and kind. THAT should matter! Sometimes it feels like this country is run by children who only care about their own immediate desires, and don't see consequences in the big picture. The Chinese word 想(xiang) means "to think", but the most common translation of 想 is want/would like... Thinking=wanting?

Japan or HK. Still Asia, but clean and civilized.

So in my case, all I need to work for my employer is a Internet connection and a coffee supply.

1) New-Zealand. Because living a no-fancy life in a garden shed by the pristine beach yet close to gorgeous mounta... volcanoes, on a remote island, is how I see my dream life now. I would have my gum boots to look after my garden when I would not be stuck on the computer. Or being surfing. Or trekking. Or fishing. Or hug trees. Or fixing my house after the last earthquake. I would not make sheep jokes.

2) Some Pacific Island with year-round tropical climate. Same as NZ, but I guess I would grow different stuffs in the garden.

3) Australia. A bit too desertic to my taste, feel a bit uneasy with the politics there, cities are too big... But still nice nature, beaches, lifestyle, I guess I can find mid-sized towns. For my garden, sounds dodgy. But cheap solar energy year-round !
4) Vietnam, in the countryside around Hanoi. Learned the language for years, lots of great & colorful friends there, feels like home, climate is fine for me, food too, great arty scene.

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
