maybe it knows something you don't............ I've had a similar fight with Chinese websites. Short of shouting 'I'M NOT!!!!!' i went to a Chinese friend to do the same task on their machine.

It's a script.  It looks at your ip address and print on the screen, "You are in xxx province"  Some ads do this to impress you into buying their products.

Because Taiwan belongs to China. That is indisputable fact. The South China Sea belongs to China. So does Japan and the Philippines, and the entire Pacific Ocean, including Hawaii.

 

It is time that westerners accepted these truths, and stopped hurting China's feelings. China is powerful now!!

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
