Q: Im traveling home to America, what things should I bring back here.

I've lived in Changsha for the last 3 years and I'm FINALLY making the trip home this Christmas to see my folks and take care of some business. I already have a decent list of things that I want to bring back but im sure I am forgetting some things that will haunt me if i forget. So, what things would you love to bring back from the US that you cant find in china. (obvious weight restrictions apply, so no grand pianos or baby elephants haha)

It would probably be worth the profit if you bring back a suitcase filled with baby formula powder.

Books on Chinese history from a Western point of view, secondhand contemporary novels in English, translated or not, chocolate and cheese (available in China but much more expensive) and socks and shoes for different seasons in the right size.

1. 2-year supply of Hanes 100% cotton underwear: T-shirts, V-necks, boxers/briefs, gym socks.  Cheap.

2. 4-to-6 pairs of Levis blue jeans (or Wrangler or Lee...).  About 1/3 the price as in China.

3. 50/50 Hanes sweatshirts in a variety of colors ($3 at a big box store)

3. Kitchen utensils that will last a lifetime and not 6 months; especially knives: chef's, paring, bread, etc.

4. If you are a teacher, the latest (cheap) teaching gizmos, books, blue tac, etc.

5. Your favorite organic spices and herbs for cooking at home.

6. Generic OTC meds for whatever ails you periodically.  (I like Zantac & Ibuprofen.)

7. French cheese.

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
