A:This is your seat, Mr Blair. Sit down, please.
B:Thank you. Mr. Wang, I'm really somewhat nervous now. I know nothing of your table manners. It would be in bad taste for a guest to make blunder.
A:Don't worry. Mr. Blair. As for table manners, there is only one rule you must observe. That is to make yourself at home.
B:No wonder people say the Chinese are hospitable. Now, I have seen it with my own eyes.
A:Mr. Blair, which do you prefer, Brandy, Mao-Tai or Wine?
B:Brandy and Mao-Tai are too strong for me. Just a glass of dry red wine, please.
A:Would you like to use chopsticks or knife and fork, Mr. Blair?
B:I think I'll try chopsticks and see if I can manage.
A:Let me show you. Look, at first place both sticks between the thumb and the fore finger,then, keep one still and move the other, so as to make them work like pincers.
B:Let me try... Well, how is that?
A:Fine, you are learning fast, Mr. Blair. Well, to your health and success in business. Cheers.
B:And to yours. Cheers.
