Good answer, Paul.  The younger Chinese, at least the ones that I see, tend to have some weight issues.  In a class of 40 students, at least 10 - 12 will be decidedly overweight, some exceptionally so.  Quite the change from a generation ago.

Most of the girls in my office will eat a boiled tea egg for breakfast, a piece of fruit for lunch and some veggies with egg for dinner.  And still they complain that they are eating too much and are getting fat.

I have a student who said he wants to lose weight, so he's eating more rice and veggies and less meat. I told him he could cut out the rice, eat more meat and veggies, and he was totally amazed. People here seem to think that rice keeps you full. Meat does too. Personally, I'd prefer to eat more meat.

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
