I assume they have just by instincts. . . I don't think scandals weigh to heavy on people's decision's here.

Like Nessquick said, pork and chicken are off the menu.  Problem is, I read that the majority of "beef" in China is actually horse meat. China is the largest consumer of horse meat, albeit unwittingly.  Oh and the bottled water has bug eggs in, so there's nothing to drink either. Man what a great place to be.

The pork I have in my freezer was purchased before the scandal, I never buy meats at a open market always at a super market I feel it's a little safer then the open market where the meat out in the open, so yes I do still it pork.

I liked Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's joke that to get pork soup in Shanghai, you just turn on the tap. Not sure how Beijing would have taken that...

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
