10 Useful Tips to stay in China

This article will save you from a possible shame or even humiliation. We present a list of 10 things, which in any case do not need to do if you want to get a good dating in China. Please read our advice and do not forget about them.

10 Useful Tips to stay in China

1. Never accept a compliment graciously

You may find yourself in an uncomfortable position when, after a compliment the hostess at the expense of a delicious dinner, and she in turn tells you: "No, no, you dinner was just awful." Or you can tell my mom that her son is very smart and handsome guy, and she tells you that he is stupid and terrible. But these people are not trying to be rude and discourteous, on the contrary they are polite and modest. The moral is if you want a better and deeper understanding of the culture, it is necessary to apply a little less boasting and putting their positive qualities on display.

2. Never place a person in an awkward position

The worst thing that you can do in China - it publicly humiliate, or make inhabitant feel uncomfortable. Having made this, you put a person in an awkward position. Never point out errors, do not yell at people in public. Although such a rule, I think can be attributed to any country, no one would have been nice if they were publicly humiliated. But the good news is that you actually can also help a person to acquire the respect of others, if the right moment to praise him. Your mercy is much appreciated.

3. Never get angry in public

Public displays of anger perceived Chinese disapproval, and this is embarrassing, what they may encounter, especially if foreign tourists are angry. Note that this behavior is directly related to the public humiliation of the Chinese, especially the owners of those places where you are, avoid it by any means. The Chinese are very sensitive to harmony, so you have to go all out to try to be polite and patient.

4. Never for the first time do not refer to a man named

The Chinese, like other peoples of the world, there is a name. But in China the first time people are turning it by name, and not, as we used to, by name. Family, exactly as the team for this nation takes precedence over the individual. For example, John Smith, who lives somewhere in Kentucky, in Shanghai will be known as John Smith, and if you came to Li Ming, then be sure to contact him should Mr. Lee, not Mr. Ming.

Unlike people living in the west, the Chinese not too feels comfortable calling each other by name. Only members of the family or the closest people ever addressed to the person by name Ming. However, before the Chinese name can be prefixed lâo - old  - old to show their closeness and familiarity.

5. Never take food sticks in the wrong direction

Next time, sitting down at the table to the Chinese hostess, you may notice that the spoon - it is simply non-existent tradition. This is because the Chinese table for all the food put themselves or others using sticks, you need to flip the tip down, and then just put yourself or others at the plate.

6. Never drink alcohol before, without proposing a toast

Chinese banquet comprises from 8 to 10 and serves meals and a lot of alcohol. Sometimes you drink rice wine, and sometimes Máo Tái, known by the fact that as soon as possible knock out a few foreigners. Easiest way to slow down is to watch the Chinese etiquette, which suggests that before you take a drink, a person is obliged to propose a toast. This not only helps you to not get drunk too fast, but so you still vykazhite helpful hosts. However, if someone says toast «gân bçi», beware.

«Gân bçi» means "bottoms up", so you will need to drink all the drink very quickly. But do not worry. In reply, you can always tell shuí yì, which means "as you wish" and make only a small sip.

7. Never let someone else pay the bill for him not poborovshis

Many western tourists are surprised getting into a Chinese restaurant and watching the picture of utter chaos and noisy scenes. What's really going on: it comes time to pay the bill and everyone starts to do what is expected of them - to fight to be the one who pay the bill. Chinese believe rigueur loudly and violently rip hand account of someone who he was. Such a spectacle could be delayed for a few minutes until someone wins and not pay the bill. Always appreciated your willingness and ability to pay.

8. Never come to visit empty-handed

Chinese often exchange gifts and not just on special occasions. If you go for dinner to meet with business partners, or any other pre-planned event, both parties bring with them some gifts as a sign of friendship and respect. Western tourists are often surprised by the number of gifts from the Chinese hosts. The general rule is that heading to China, it is worth to take a lot of small gifts with them. Never know where to meet someone who wants to give you small gifts, so you need to bring your own.

9. Never accept food, drinks or gifts in front of this a couple of times without giving

No self-respecting guest will not immediately accept whatever offer he hosts. No matter how you hungry, or thirsty, or you can not wait to get a gift - Chinese etiquette suggests that you should not show it, sometimes you need to abandon proposed.

10. Never take the phrase, "No, thank you" literally

The Chinese people have already developed the habit will be to deny you a few times, even despite the fact that they are very hungry or thirsty. Never be taken first, "No, thank you" literally, even if the person you replied failure several times, do not be lazy to offer again. Good guest should refuse at least once, but a good boss to offer twice.

At first glance it may seem that it is rather strange tradition. But think again, do we not act in much the same? Are educated people in our country will be publicly humiliate another? No! Have we come to visit empty-handed? I think that is very rare. And coming to her friend, just as we say a couple of times, "Oh, no thanks, I'm not hungry!" I do not think we will be too hard to follow all these rules, although clearly hear from the owners to compliment the negative response will be a little weird! But we are with you now know that this is normal. And what about interesting Chinese traditions and taboos you know? Share it with us!

Turks evince consent, that is, "yes» - Even, nod forward and down. Say "no» - Hahyur can nod up and back, lifting up his eyebrows at this or just nod without raising his eyebrows. Turks can also "tsyknut" to say "no." When you move your head from side to side, as if you say "I do not understand," "thank you" You can express lifted his hand to his heart and sometimes a little nod.

10 Tips on how to choose perfume

Nowadays, you will rarely find a man or woman who does not use any perfume at all. Everyone can pick up something to their liking, emphasizing their individuality and adding another image flavor. Many turn this process into something like buying vegetables at the local supermarket without thinking about what mistakes were made. Do not forget that our scent plays a very important role in shaping their own style and even establishing themselves in society. When the spirits matched perfectly, the person feels just fine, nothing to spoil his mood, on the contrary, such a harmony literally illuminates it from the inside, he feels confident, as all around make him compliments about the wonderful aroma emanating from it.

how to choose perfume

I do not think anyone will blame me if I call a true art of perfumery. Creating fragrances - it is incredibly delicate work, and incorrect choice spirits of the final consumer is already almost a crime! Many lend themselves to someone else's influence and opt for popular copies without even bothering to "discover" them for yourself.

Let's try to deal with the fact, as you still need to choose a perfume that will remain in your life for a long time and will be the most loyal companion for many years to come. Especially for you I have collected some tips that will help you to understand what you really want from the aroma, and as a result find exactly what you need.

1. Take your time

One of the most important pieces of advice I can give you when you puzzled by the question of selection of spirits, is that in any case should not be hasty! Best flavor try several times under different mood and feeling. Do not jump to conclusions, his breath several times, standing at the window in a perfume shop. Stay with the smell alone for the day, go to sleep and wake up with him. Watch for how to respond to all your flavor receptors, whether beginning headache or nausea. Sniffs him periodically throughout the day, and, if possible, after a while before buying do so several times.

2. Try fragrance on your skin

Let's start with the fact that all these paper strips, which usually consultants offer you to familiarize yourself with the scent, you can, in fact, with the scent not familiar. Fragrance should try only on the skin, and then to not suffer from neponravilis smell spritz it needs on hand in the space between the wrist and the elbow. Let the smell of "soak" into your skin and show you all that he is capable of. By that I mean the fact that many perfumes enough "complex". Smell flows smoothly from one to another, magically transformed into some final version, which may be quite different from what it was in the beginning. 
Usually perfume structure consists of three notes:

1) Head note
Fragrances consist of different ingredients, each of which has a certain volatility. So as soon as you splash your spirits on hand, over time each of them will gradually "leave" of flavor, revealing a certain way. Many smells miraculously transformed by interacting with the heat of your body.

The process of the first phase lasts for several minutes to 1 to 1.5 hours. After most of the flavor will go unstable components, you will feel headache (initial) note, which, as it will prepare you for the fact that the spirits in turn eventually.

2) Cardiac note
You're already starting to feel the very core of flavor, this is a defining smell your perfume. They are also called heart notes. It was at this moment aroma should be as close to you and pleasant.

3) The base notes and a loop
Each of us was a time when a friend or a complete stranger man walked past us, and after it was a light scent that literally beckoning us to follow him. This so-called plume of spirits, which can only be revealed in such a "state" and nothing else. Base note - is a note that was left on your skin after a fairly prolonged contact, being a most unpredictable and that is why it is interesting. Ensure that morning to you all also gladly breathed convert flavor and feel how beautiful it is in this phase too.

Remember that you must like flavor in all three stages of "weathering". Only then it will be a real gift of fate, not just wasted money.

how to choose perfume

3. Do not test many flavors at once

In the previous section, I advise you to try the spirits, splashing their hands on the skin, most often we do it right on your wrist. Very gentle place that was like meant to drip on his lovely charming aromas.

So, since we only have two hands, I would not advise you to test more than two flavors at a time. Otherwise, they will gradually blend into one another and slightly mislead your impression of each of them. Better spent on the choice between albeit only four options you are interested in a little more time than nabryzgatsya all at once and simply get lost in them.

4. As soon as possible, leave the store

Do not expect to be able to catch the flavor, being in a perfume shop. You will be confused by a lot of other smells, and even a jar of fragrant coffee here once you no help. Make it a rule: dripped perfume as soon as possible and get out of the scented room. No matter where you go on, most importantly, that your nose was free from other spirits, flying in such places.

5. Note characteristics from manufacturer

Except for the name of each flavor is credited with some more features that reflect its basic notes. Set epithets sometimes rather trivial, but still I would advise you to pay attention to them. Sensual, expressive, romantic, elegant, natural, sporty - these words tell of what character or character prevails in the spirits try to relate them to each other. So it will be easier to "understand" the flavor and remember it as well as to narrow the range of possible options, if you suddenly doubted. And perhaps he will reveal in you that years stored somewhere in the corner of your soul!

6. Correlate flavor to season

Everyone knows that the flavors can not always be completely universal, even if they come to you in all respects, they may be simply inappropriate for the time of year. Not every citrus, candy, fresh and floral fragrance, even if your favorite will go perfectly with the frosty air. And about how hard it would be to go with spicy and sharp oriental fragrance in the summer, I think, and say no. Of course, if you're madly in love with a smell, and this passion is not extinguished under the influence of the change of seasons, stay true to him throughout the year. But if you feel a certain discrepancy may either flavor is not suitable for this time.

Personally, I now left alone with enough winter and heavy perfume, really want to buy something more suitable for our solar and very fresh spring. They are too aggravating my image and set the wrong mood, despite the fact that winter is nothing better for me my favorites.

7. Not pursue fashion

A friend of mine worked for a while in the famous perfume shop, and one day she told us that it was brought to an entirely new, but the sensational perfume that every second buyer acquires, not even sniffing. Girls and adult women grabbed stylish box with a vial of an unknown smell them without hesitation. Consultant to the question if they are familiar with the aroma, almost all answered "No", it is not embarrassed about the situation. The television was launched very bright, beautiful and sexy ad featuring stars, magazines were filled with notes about this perfume, no one even thought that it could someone not like.

how to choose perfume

What kind of individuality and uniqueness may be involved in this "zombie" mass consumption goods? I am completely against such purchases, although marketing company, launched at promotion of this product deserves applause. Bravo, fellow professionals!

In no case do not chase fashion, again, even if someone was lucky, and this way he came across a fragrance that suits him in all respects, wonderfully revealed on his skin, interacting with it, it is very risky way, which eventually could lead to disappointment. All of us are quite different, and we should appreciate it! Keep your individuality, underline it, stays true to yourself, only then you will be the most confident and happy with yourself.

8. Do not use spirits that do not suit you

I and most times were not a situation where I bought a new perfume in a heartbeat used them for a while, but eventually realized that they were no longer my love. In a similar situation as many people do? Continue to dabble longer liked perfume, expecting that eventually this "obsession" will be held, it all started so well.

But it likely will not work, because really your perfume you hardly so quickly cease to please. And this just was not the right, not well understood and disclosed. Do not torture yourself and those around her bad mood, just leave it alone and go in search of the new fragrance, now, then you are more versed in this matter, is not it?

9. Indulge in the purchase of several perfumes

Despite the fact that all this time I was talking about your favorite perfume in the singular, it does not oblige you to indulge in the purchase of new flavors, when the old has not yet ended. If you feel a new hobby, absolutely justified and proven by all criteria (I mean, of course, all of these rules, which I have already said), but it is not willing to turn from the old smell, do not deny yourself the pleasure to replenish their collection! This is perfectly normal, we - women are very sensual and changeable nature, even happy that we are constantly changing mood and attitude, so no big deal to buy a few perfumes, suitable for different life situations.

For example, one suitable for everyday wear, the other blends with romantic evening images. Or one you dushites when you need a modicum of confidence and even arrogance, and the second, third and fourth, respectively, perfect for a seductive, playful, or, conversely, a serious attitude. Expand the facets of his character with marvelous and wonderful flavors that nature gives us hands of skilled "masters" perfume. Do not stay on the same smell them maybe you have a great many, and all of them will be fit perfectly!

10. Always pay attention to the details and design

To begin, I would like to touch on a topic such as the so-called types of flavoring, and you were able to understand this issue. 
Throughout this article, I called them perfume or perfume that, in general, do not say what is wrong, but still slightly generalized. Total of which there are 4-5 species, let's quickly go over their main features. The main criterion for determining the difference between one species from another - is the amount of essential oils contained in the product as a percentage. Basically, it shows how strong, clear and persistent aroma will, though they should not exclude the purely physical characteristics of the skin of each of us. The same flavor can be very resistant to one person and totally invisible and unstable on the other.

1. Perfume, perfume extract
In this type of product contains about 20-30% of essential oils, which is why it is the most expensive of all other species. Will be indicated on the packaging of such a name: perfume, perfume or extract or if it is a European product, then "Parfum", "PDT" or "Extrait".

2. Perfume
This is the most popular option in the shops of our country, and probably around the world. It is somewhat cheaper than the perfume, however, the content of essential oils in it all well enough for a decent stamina and strength of flavor - an average of 15%. On the non-Russian version will be indicated "Eau de perfume" or abbreviated as "EDP".

3. Eau de Toilette
In the toilet water collected approximately 10% of essential oils. Her resistance is much smaller than the previous two, which is logical, but many prefer it to this kind of aromatic funds because they do not like very strong odors, respecting a hint of them. The European version is presented to us as "Eau de toilette" or "EDT".

4. Cologne
The name is derived from "Eau de cologne", essential oils here from 3 to 8%. This kind of glorified flavors for a long time, he enjoyed very popular among men always. Unfortunately or fortunately, the first three species successfully outshone him his popularity. Now he is merely an echo of the past days. 
Unfortunately, many stores are sold not only the original flavors, among them exhibit a huge amount of fake so-called "versions". Often at first sight very difficult to determine the original to you or a fake , but a few tips you can still help:

how to choose perfume

1) Pay attention to exactly where you want to buy their own perfume. The shops specializing in the sale, including perfumes, should be the appropriate document confirming the legality of their actions and the quality of the supplied goods. He usually hangs around in a conspicuous place and made ​​a declaration and certificate of conformity.

2) The packaging must be in perfect condition, no cracks, creases, holes or irregularities. If you have your hands pretty box with slightly curved edges or uneven package before you fake. In addition, the wizard fakes very often avoid claims of copyright infringement, stamping version of perfume with the same title, which is replaced by one or two letters. If you decide to buy perfumes, check the packaging for any errors in the title.

3) We have already talked a little about the composition of the product, when we studied the main types of perfumes, mentioning the amount of essential oils. However, apart from that on the back of the dispenser must be very detailed composition of spirits, confirming the quality of the producer. Those who forge flavors do not really care about this point, so here you have to be very careful. 
Moreover, the majority of spirits are transparent or slightly yellowish color. If you notice a bright red or blue perfume, again pay attention to the. There should be indicated dyes, if not - then before you fake!

4) It is also a clue from the manufacturer is a stamp - a combination of numbers and letters indicating the batch number. Usually it is located either under the lid or bottom of the package or vial.

5) And, of course, judge for yourself and costs of goods sold. I can not disagree with the fact that the cost of spirits at times, and it happens that hundreds overstated the entire cost of even the most expensive perfume is about 10-15% of the final price. But do not forget about all things related: design development, packaging, marketing, promotion, delivery and so on. Do not forget that it is primarily a commodity, sell it, and it means that the main purpose of its production is still making a profit.

Of course, in Europe and even Eau extracts are much cheaper, but even there the cost is not less than 30-40 euros. Try to still acquire quality goods that somehow, but worth the money. 100 rubles for a bottle of perfume from the world famous brand - it certainly is very tempting, but it is a real fake.

6) As with any product, the spirits have their expiry date. Most often it is the year, make sure that what is stated on the package in your hands.

Finally, I suggest one more thing - if you are in doubt about whether to make the purchase of certain spirits, better not buy it. When you really feel your scent, no doubt you will not have - it's a fact. Also do not forget that the bottles come in different sizes, you can try to start the smallest of them, and after moving to a more serious volumes. So you will save yourself from spending an insane amount of money on something that in the end will not even bring you pleasure.
