  1. What's missing in Chinese eating manners is a civilised way to put, press, or how you will call it, the (sometimes, not always, excelent) food
    into their mouths, which is disgusting to look at.
    They can learn from my pet. He's better table manners; not neanderthaler like!

    Real Chinese is a 10-part series which was broadcast on the BBC learning zone.

    The series covers some of the basics of Mandarin Chinese while looking into various aspects of Chinese culture.

  3. WO YAO "FLIED LICE" (something I can eat in a cave, somethinbg that will be edible after about a decade — and by then Amelika and her ifiot red-caps will be finished, cooked alive by the sun's ultraviolet rays…and I will be in a cave underground with my Chinese friends, who survive to repopulate the entire planet and spread happy picnic culture everywhere) P.S., careful what you touch, there are still lots nasty human corpses lying about everywhere, unburied {Isaiah 26:21 & Jeremiah 25:30-33, Isaiah 51:6 and Amos 8:9 say what IU cannot, but iut IS the sunshine that will liuterally "beat them down" –Isaiah 28 explains it for you}.
    Shalom, if you mean to those nearby and to those faraway, too!

  4. Both the restaurant servers and the guests did not know table manner, etiquette. It is very bad manner to eat the food off a plate. One puts the food in a bowl before one brings the food to the mouth. That is the proper way.

  5. this lady was describing "Peking Duck" NOT barbecue Duck.the two are very different animals. bbq are with many flavours and can be made in a day. Peking duck has very few ingredients and the original process was five thousands words and took up to 3 days to prepare !
