Q: What kind of light bulbs does your apartment in China have?

When we moved in, all lamps where equipped with very cold energy saving light bulbs. Kudos to it being energy saving (old school bulbs still available at the time) but man the light it unbearable. As luck would have it, the light bulbs fail pretty frequently, so now we have a more cosy warm lighting. (I am too environmentally concerned (or cheap) to throw away a working bulb)

When I walk at night in the hood, all but a few apartments are lit with cold cold light. Why ?

When we renovated our place we bought a ton of very good philips energy savers. One year on and not one of them has gone.

  We don't have any, we just have a seven foot lava lamp we all cuddle around in the evening when we're listening to the radio.

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
