And is there a "limit" for taking yogurt on board in China?
Well, considering they make you throw away any liquids... I guess so. Well actually they don't require that, some idiot 3 years ago made me taste a can of Diet Coke and shouted something as I threw it to the nearest trash can after that. So the lady in the story could have opened them all and carried on I guess.

Today's age, 9-11, other crap. Yeah... whatever.
We had a military coup here two days ago, and the result was the bars were open longer the next day. Just relax.

At the security inspection I was required to leave behind an unopened can of juice (purchased in China). Liquids seemed to be the most important threat to security at the time - many months before LHR's issue with liquids and gels.
Exactly - after some moron who possibly can't even read the boarding pass in the two seconds he looks at it, but stamps it anyway. Chinese airport departure procedure has to be the stupidest I have ever seen:
Customs clearance, pay tax, check-in, departure immigration, then this liquid sensitive screening with people who don't speak a word of English... In the process you collect about 32 stamps in the darned boarding pass.
God bless the European airports where you swipe your card in a machine, get a BP
and 3 minutes later you sit in the lounge.
