You Became Fat …

chinese foodYesterday we met up with a friend we hadn’t seen for a while. One of
the first things she mentioned was, “You became fat”. All said with a
very friendly smile.



Two years ago I might have felt a bit embarrased.
Where I come from it’s not the politest thing to say. Not that she was
wrong, she is definitely right. Shanghai has more Western food
than Kunming, hence more fat.



In China, I have learned now, telling a
man he gained weight is not meant in a bad way at all.



Don’t tell
a woman though.
