Q: Why do Chinese eat ice cream in the winter time?

It is cold, so cold now, and yet I see many Chinese continue to eat ice cream and popsicles. Even too, McDonald's walk by window is selling soft cone ice cream. What is up with that thing?

Maybe because ICE CREAM ROCKS.... I had one yesterday. (ok, it's 20C here) 

 

The concept of eating something cold to get through a hot day hasn't really broken though in China. As ice cream is not a traditional thing, like A/C, heating and other modern inventions. They are not controlled by the highly regimented behavioral patterns of Chinese society.

it's -10C here today, and i still eat ice cream.  honestly, china has ruined a lot of great things, but they do ice cream pretty damn good.  i'm partial to strawberry, but the popular milk flavored ones are good too.  i walked to the supermarket earlier today, huddled in my down jacket, eating one...

Funny thing about eating ice cream in winter. I see it, too. In the States, in England, in Spain, in France, in Italy, in Russia, and various and sundry countries that just happen not to be China. So what is the question? Really?

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
