    • What are the ‘rules’ of ang-pow giving and receiving?
    • The forms, timing and ‘procedures’ all very much matter – the REAL and the “LIKE-REAL” go hand in hand
    • The “thought” isn’t ALL that counts

    • Why do Chinese take the lion dance seriously? (KDU example)

    • What would happen if we missed the reunion dinner? What does that say about us?
    • Do we Chinese HAVE to go for the dinner or do we GET to go?
    • The most important may also be the most ‘everyday’ and ‘mundane’
