That's all I was dealing with as that's the OP's actual question, is the first lady of China elegan ...
It's high time people stopped using their cultural values to judge the actions of other people in different nations.


Charity activities is universal
its not about culture values or something unique of a nation or country

aiyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, are you really a moderator in this forum?

Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

Why not compare Lihua to the Finnish prime minister's wife?

I could nearly help you out there with a famous quote :"And now, a massage from the Swedish Prime Minister."

Finland has one of the highest levels of English as a second language in the world.

Do some resea ...

The Finns must be very embarrassed about their own language in that case, the fact that they also have Swedish as a dual national language puts a further dent in the pride and value that is Finnish.

Now we know why you failed statistics in school.

I didn't study statistics at school ( that plus intense English learning must be another Finnish speciality ) but managed to get through modes involving statistics in Psychology and Geography at uni. I didn't come across any connection between this subject and Scandanvian keyboards, perhaps you could enlighten me.

Indeed I did happen to hear that Steve Jobs had passed away a few years ago but well done you for making that remark about how he died from cancer. No doubt that will make many other cancer sufferers feel really great.

What was Grace doing there ? At least the Chinese first lady made the effort to speak in English which many of the UN delegates would comfortably understand and would thus not require headphones and translations. People will appreciate the fact that you are at least making the effort such as when rockstars address a foreign audience with a few local phrases, or when in China, for example, a foreigner can say "xiexie", "dui buqi", "ni hao", "ni chi le ma", "zai jian" etc.

If you were reading from a statement written in Spanish how much would you smile and look at your audience ? How well could you keep to the speech time allotted to you and speak this foreign tongue in a fluid and easily understood manner ?
