Q: Valentine's Day....what will you and your partner being doing?

This Valentine's Day coincides with the 15th day of the Spring Festival, which is also the Chinese Lovers' Day. Will hotels be fully booked? Valentine's Day has become more popular in recent years in China, especially with those born after 1990. What are your thoughts?

For the previous Chinese Valentine's day, I tried to take my gf to the nice-ish local Japanese restaurant.  After we had put in our order, they came back and said sorry...there is a 500rmb minimum tonight just because of the holiday.  Other than ordering the ridiculously overpriced kobe beef (probably fake), there was no way 2 people could eat 500 rmb worth of food here....so I told them to shove off.  We went and ate baozi instead for 20rmb.  Maybe we'll just go straight to the baozi place this time, as I expect most nicer sit down restaurants will be:

1. packed

2. overpriced

3. ready to make my blood boil

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
