Contrary to your intention of turning this post into a race baiting Chinese bashing thread, most of our complaints are strictly environmental and not racial.

There is a MASSIVE difference between Chinese in Canada that came as young children and were raised in the west...and those that arrived later in life.

Environment....morals, ethics, knowledge and real education makes a huge difference.

I would complain just as much if I lived in India or Russia....not about a race of people but about behavior and customs learned because of environment and government.  

So whether you work for the CCP or ECC please go race bait elsewhere.

When I first came here I expected the law to be harshly enforced and for police and soldiers to be on every street corner watching their citizens closely. It didn't take long to realise there isn't even basic rule of law here.

Good at math? Maybe a select few. Amazes me in shops when you buy 2 or 3 items and they use a calculator to work out the bill. In my experience they are no good at simple mental arithmetic.

They can't take their alcohol - True

They are not open to new ideas - True

They are studious - False

Chinese bodies are different - FALSE, FALSE VERY F*****G FALSE!

Disclaimer - These are of course very broad categories and many Chinese people do not fit into the stereotype. Except the last one......

The only Chinese stereotypes that I was aware of before coming here were...

Big country..many people...everyone eats rice and they're all short and look the same.

Yes, yes, no, no, no.

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
