Q: What's a tasty/safe brand of milk to buy in Beijing?

Yili's out of the question since their huge tainted milk schedule in 2008. 

 

Are there any other local/reputable milk brands around?

I personally like Sanyuan (三元) milk, you can get it at Jenny Lou's April Gourmet and occasionally larger Chinese supermarkets for 16-22 RMB. As far as the milk scandal goes, Sanyuan appears to be the only one that wasn't implicated:

 

"On 26, September 2008 Beijing Sanyuan Foods Co Ltd[5] (SHA 600429) said its shares will be suspended from today pending an announcement related to a possible acquisition. Beijing Sanyuan is the only listed diary producer that has avoided being associated with China's milk contamination scandal."

I recommend just buying foreign imported milk from any large 'foreign' supermarket you can find.  Even if there's some Chinese brands that haven't gotten in trouble (sanyuan for example) is it really worth the risk.  Imported milk is more expensive of course but you can rest easy knowing the country it's from has higher health standards.

 

I've heard of too many cases of something supposedly being safe in China only to see later the company gets in trouble for unsafe products. Happened with a popular brand of bottled water I use to always buy, eventually it ended up getting pulled off shelves cause of the contamination's it had.

 

I'm just now recovered from a 4 day case of food poisoning. I think I got it from mcdonalds but no way to know for sure. I just heard that mcdonalds in China uses some sort of grease or oil that's banned in other countries. Always gotta be carefull with food/drinks in China imo.

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
