I know that feel man, I can't stand it when people of chinese decent back home call me a waiguoren or a foreigner. My country was traditionally populated only by white people so technically they are the foreigners. And I am talking about recent immigrants from Mainland China, no respect for their host country, those whose families have been here for decades (before the commies took over China) are not like that.

Let me toss in a real life MIL story here.

 

At her place, a while ago when she got her beloved smart phone, I set up a wifi router. It then became evident to me that she turns it off at night. It is still a mystery to me why, but I did do the math, that it saves her about 28-30RMB per year on the utilities bill (I find that pointless, but it also saves some CO2, which makes more sense) 

Anyway. I have recently added a timer watch, so the power is cut automatically. I opted for a cheap analog timer from IKEA as think it gives off less fictional radiation than a digital one. As the router is near a desk that also has a lamp, the powerplug from the router is in a powerstrip, with an on/off switch. The strip also has a lamp connected, a lamp that one would never use without the router being on as, what would be the fun in sitting at the desk. 

Anyway. Status on this setup is. At night after the timer has cut her off wifi, she goes and turns of the swich on the strip and sometimes unplugs the lamp......

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
