No Kidding...

...ask 88 himself. He will tell you the story of the Chinese saving his life. I don't exactly know
for sure but I think he lives in the Carolina's right here in America. He is as American as
an American pie....except instead Red Delicious apples being inside...it's Peking Duck.

somethin' fishy?

[SNEAKS UP ON iluv2fish and thumps iluv2fish's right ear, as popped off of the thumb tip with the forefinger]



I heard that iluv2fish was swallowed by a whale, but the whale got sick and regurgitated iluv2fish back onto the beach -- is that not what happened, iluv2fish?

the man, huh?

I believe the man is a lady, iluvfish you are such a dunderhead!  'Course being ignorant never stopped the likes of you from from imposing on someone did it?



Since you are such an expert on everything, ilust4fishes ... why don't you tell us all about it, you brought it up, you have the interest it seems, do you have a story or do you have to read about it in the Washington Times, first?

hi,
   you should not buy clothes to them I think, it  is  seldom  looked as a formal gift.especially  you are not very  familar,and also,even  if  you think  the clothes is wonderful,and cost you much money,it doesn't mean they will like it just  like you. or it  may don't suit for him at all.
   with the increasing of the chinese peoples'living level, the people can afford to buy  anything what they want basically.so you need not  want to buy something which they don't have .the gift  just   express something for them, it is a form of polite address,it is a custom.
  if you want to make a formal  visit to their house, you can bring some your local produces ,just like tea,wood  carving and so on,also you bring some health-care food, you know ,'good health' i s what everbody want  most. everthing auspicious is ok
