Eight Don't Ask Questions in China

At the coming Beijing Olympics, the Chinese residents have been requested, via a propaganda, not to ask certain questions when they bump into a foreigner .............. that's really cute. China government even try to control what you speak.

But the China authorities put it nicely when disseminating this message, it's called social etiquettes.

When I read through the list of prohibited questions, those were the similar questions that I will usually enquire about when I meet a new friend.


If you are with a China friend, make sure you remind him/her so that they won't ask you the following questions otherwise they could be arrested at by the authorities:-

* don’t ask about income or expenses
* don’t ask about age
* don’t ask about love life or marriage
* don’t ask about health
* don’t ask about someone’s home or address
* don’t ask about personal experience
* don’t ask about religious beliefs or political views
* don’t ask what someone does

Foreigners are exempted. Go ask the Chinese ........... hehehe
