Q: Winter in China. Are you ready ?

How you alive during these uncomfortable days and what item is best to help you survive ?

I am ready. i got 2 electric-oil heaters, but my wife do not like them. rather she use an AC, which i do not like in winter so much. Are your windows also with 1cm gap between each window pole, where the cold air happy come inside your house ?

Never again, I was colder in China than at home in Canada. My house is well insulated and has central heat. On cold days I can wear a car. I'm thinking Dominican this winter.

The cold doesn't bother me as much as the summers in China.  

 

At least in the cold I can put on more clothes or while in the house crank up the heater.  In the summer when your soaked in sweat, its smoggy, your tired...there's nothing you can do about it.

It's still -20 everyday here where I am.  Last month it was -30.

Last week in Russia it was zero, or just under.  We went to Russia for a winter break.  Funny, right?

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
