Q: What is the English name of 青菜?

I really like this vegetable and I wanted to recommend it to my family. As far as what I could find, it's bok choy? Some sites say it is Chinese white cabbage, but I think bok choy is simply a variety of that. Does anybody know for sure? If it is bok choy, is it the same variety as the kind you can find in America? I used to dislike leafy green vegetables, but even I have to admit this is is tasty. Do you like qing cai?

I love that veggie. Bok choy is the name we have used in english for a long time, but I think that the word 'bok choy' comes from korean language.

The english name is rape, and since no one wants to "have their rape and eat it too," it just works better sticking with bok choy.

Baby bok choy, which is, indeed, young Bok Choy, which changes its taste and texture as it grows older.

White Chinese Cabbage = Bok Choy = Baicai = 白菜

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
