work: week 2

by now i am eating with my hands every day at lunch, skillfully scooping up curry covered rice clumps. i still use my hand sanitizer beforehand though.

my co-workers belch a lot during lunch. i'm don't think i'm ready to emulate that.

Belching...ah, welcome to my world. It's common to do that in Hong Kong and China (because there's no social rule whatsoever that you shouldn't).
Whenever my family has dinner with guests or at a restaurant, I have to figure out at way to remind my kin of this odd piece of Western cavility. Or sit back and just bear it and laugh, which is what I usually do because I don't know how to say "belch" in Chinese.
