We had heard a lot, some speculations some assumptions about this country. But all of them can be a myth of what China is. We’ll not be able to understand what China really is even if we have been to China and we love the local cuisine and learn the language. Chinese need a long nail on their pinky, they stick chopsticks in rice, and they think that they are polite. But, why? China raises more pertinent questions when you try to find about it.
The men love themselves
This is mostly true with the younger generation.
The younger generation likes to use all kinds of perfumes, they get super-trendy hairstyles, and they dye their hair, and put a lot of time and money into their wardrobe.
But there’s a big difference between 2 Chinese men of different ages as adult men barely care about their clothes, let alone hairstyles and facial creams.
What matters is how attractive you are
Western people are definitely very attractive as they have big eyes and pale skin no matter if they are polite or not.
They don’t care about the nationality, what really matters is that you look “European” so you can be on the cover of a fashion magazine.
What a peculiar diet
Chinese people boil eggs in urine. They collect a bucket of urine from boys under the age of 10, and they make a recipe called Virgin boy eggs.
These eggs are 4 times more expensive than regular eggs, and they are called to be a delicacy.
Their skin preferences
The Chinese people have good terms for dark people. Don’t be surprised if you hear an expression “coffee person” if you are well acquainted with the local language. It means that they are talking about a black person.
Not so strict you know
The Chinese people love drinking.
They buy beer in boxes for parties as they mostly like them. They also sell alcohol and cigarettes to teenagers.
As local children just don’t do that, it’s virtually impossible to see a drinking or a smoking child here.
The cab drivers have the ability to avoid any kind of mishap and make sure their customers are scot free. Even though they may look risky at times everything is safe.
Don’t touch anyone
Chinese people handshakes only when in business meetings or dealing with any foreigners.
You should respect them to show your respect toward the person if someone hands over a business card, try to take it and put it in your wallet as carefully as you can.
Women take to military
Around 5% of the total military staff is filled with the fairer gender. It’s very popular among young Chinese women as the army provides a great education, training, and career opportunities.
These charming soldiers serve in traditional roles as nurses and military support personnel.
There are no forks in China
There are no forks in a typical Chinese cafe. You have to get familiar even with a meal with chopsticks as you don’t have any other option
Pyjamas for business
In China, pajamas are not just for bedtime.
Most of the Chinese people wear pajamas to business meetings, dinners, and walks and they are not ashamed of it.
