Its been exactly what I have been looking for. I smoked full flavor menthol cigarettes for nearly 15 years.
There are also a number of occasions in China when offering someone a respectful greeting is not only recommended, but may be seen as necessary by the host or organizer.
These types of situations can include weddings, birthdays, holidays, meeting the in-lawsopening a new business, and many others. There are a number of forms well-wishing can take, and one of the more common is Chinese idioms: I have compiled a list below of some of the most common idioms which can be used to wish someone well.
Learning several of these idioms will give any Westerner attending an event in China a big head start in terms of knowing what to say and making an impression on the Chinese. And while it is fine to simply use one idiom at a time, in China it is more common to use multiple idioms for a single greeting.
While this not only confers more respect from a Chinese point of view, a Westerner using multiple idioms is almost guaranteed to make an even bigger impression with Chinese friends and hosts.
So, its always best to keep modesty in mind as well. In any event, take a look at the idioms below for a sure-fire way to make an impression at a Chinese party or event!
May you soon give birth to a son. May you forever be of one mind. May you have a harmonious union that lasts one hundred years. May you have mutual love and respect. May you live together until your hair turns white with old age. May you have a Happy New Year. May you have excess every year. May you have peace year after year.
May you have a lucky New Year. May you have the best of luck with your new business. May your wealth be plentiful.
May profits pour in from all sides. May you be endowed with a thriving business and prosperous trade. May you succeed through harmony and friendship. May you earn huge profits every day. May you have wealth and success also traditionally said during the new year.
May you live for one hundred years. May your luck be as immense as the Eastern Sea. May you live as long as Mount Nan. May you have domestic bliss. May you gather happily under one roof.Learn Chinese in Beijing and Shanghai with That's Mandarin Chinese school.
