Q: If you got a bad taste in the mouth from eating gutter oil based moon cakes then read here !

The people writing the commentary translated below don't seem to understand that the problem is not just the government. E.g. suggesting making it a crime to pollute makes no sense (it probably already is) when there is no enforcement of basic rules.

Comment below the link is 'blast'.

 

I was at the dinner last night with Qingdao guy and city's VIPs. Director of Bus Co., and such....

Yank is beer drinker, and I 'if I drink, it's usually red wine'.

 

We were all drinking Spanish red, 'privately imported' from S. Korea.

They poured wine in the pitcher and add  ice.

 

They're reading 'my recipes' on eChina.....

 

'Add-it': you made me think (saliva in my mouth) about 'sachertorte' and 'tities' 'apflestrudel'…'creameshnitte' too……...

the moon cakes with nuts are especially a problem, the oil from walnuts and others in high doses is a guaranteed laxative for those with constipation problems, the gutter oil is an additional bonus, eating a half cup of raw walnuts in one sitting is better than any medication for giving you a long sitting or squat within 3 hours of consumption.

Polluting is already a crime. The use of gutter oil is punishable by death sentence for example.

Problem is you can't tell people "it doesn't matter the color of the cat so long that it catches mice" and still expect them to act like reasonnable and balanced human beings.

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
