You could try buying vitamin B3 at your local chemist ( I buy lots of vitamins in little white tubs, normally B complex: folic acid, B1, B2, B6, B12 for only a few yuan each which turns out to be a lot cheaper than buying multi-vit packs) I haven't seen B3 though. That or you could buy food that is rich in niacin(B3):

Niacin is found in variety of foods, including liver, chicken, beef, fish, cereal, peanuts and legumes, and is also synthesized from tryptophan, which is found in meat, dairy and eggs.

Animal products:
liver, heart and kidney
chicken
beef

fish:
tuna
salmon

Dairy:
milk
eggs

Fruits and vegetables:
avocados
dates
tomatoes
leaf vegetables
broccoli
carrots
sweet potatoes
asparagus

Seeds:
nuts
whole grain products
legumes
saltbush seeds

Fungi:
mushrooms
brewer's yeast

To ask for it just write a B cubed on a piece of paper (I mean B elevated to the third power : B^3) and a translation for vitamin which is similar sounding in Chinese, if memory serves. That how I manage to make myself understood anyway.

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
