If so, here are some manners to follow (via The Today Show)

1. Never keep your chopsticks standing upright in your rice when youre finished eating. The people of china find it disrespecful because it reminds of them of incense on a gravesite in a cemetary

2. Never give a chinese person white flowers when giving them. They only give out white flowers at at funeral

3. When drinking tea, never aim the teapot spout at your guest while pouring.

4. Never bring up: age, health, religion, what they do for a living or personal info such as their address etc... Keep the conversation simple and non invasive

Maybe CHuChu can add a few more for us!
