Q: Reason that got you attracted to China?

Most of us expat landed in China, but everyone of us got different reasons, different stories. I personally got attracted to China when I was younger, back in university. Went there for vacation, and I landed so many Chinese girls! It's moar straightforward to get women here. You buy them wine, some gifts and they'll love you for life!

And then the food. God the food was awesome! It was a nice change, helped me lose a few pounds. I still enjoy the occasional KFC now and then, although most of the time it's too crowded so I have to pass. It's amazing the power of attraction of 'Merica!

And then the cheap cost of life compared to expat salaries. Back in 'Merica, when my boss gave me the opportunity to move in China, I didn't hesitate for a second before accepting teh job.

What about you, what's your story?

I think for many people, especially the younger slice, this is a unique opportunity to go abroad and try something completely new.

Once you settle down, have a wife and kids, this becomes the stuff of dreams. May as well do it now while it's still possible.

I'm on the run from the law in my country! They'll never find me in China, and even if they do I've got big Mongolian mates who can protect me!

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
