Kung Hei Fat Choi?
Kung Hei Fat Choi. That is the only thing I know how to say in Chinese. I grew up near San Francisco and always looked forward to Chinese New Year. (Chinese could buy firecrackers around New Year so we bought firecrackers from our Chinese friends.) I am here in China just before New Year so when I got off the plane and got to my hotel in Shanghai, I wished her a happy New Year. (KHFC) Well she gave me the most puzzled look and then I found out I was speaking the wrong Chinese. The Chinese that settled in San Francisco were for the Canton area. In Shanghai they speak Mandarin. WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME!
