My new boss walks in and after meeting me she says “啊 好帅的！“ (omg, he’s cute!) to my colleagues. Then one of them says “um.. he speaks Chinese”. Then she translates embarrassed ”I was saying, you look ok”.
I live in a lane-house in Shanghai in the French concession area. Sometimes it’s a bit complex for postmen to find the letter or package recipient’s exact address. When they don’t, what they do is stand in the middle of the lane court and start SHOUTING the name of the person to which the letter is addressed 10-20 times in a row. I usually wake up on Sundays at 9:30am to shouts like: “SHENG MI, SHENG MI, SHENG MI”, or “YANG FAN, YANG FAN, YANG FAN!”
