As Teacher Li mentioned yesterday, today's class will be the most interesting. Indeed it was. We talked about the differences between Chinese culture and communication and other Western countries. At the afternoon, we went to Hai He and took a boat for tour. Then we went to the Ancient Culture Street to go shopping. And I found some very interesting thing between bargaining in Tianjin and Beijing. Which is, in Beijing you usually have to bargain with the sales once by once. But in Tianjin, when Dylan was watching in the Chinese chess, the sales was offering 180 Yuan at the first time. Then the sales us if we are really interested to buy the chess or not. Then we said maybe. Then she said that she could give us a lower price, 110 Yuan. Then we said we will think about it and ready to leave the store. And then the sale just offered another lower price for only 80 Yuan. I can see that that's the lowest price we can get, but I want to tell you we get this more than 50% off price with a conversation without any bargaining for less than 45 seconds. So here is one little suggestion for bargaining, sometimes if you can't get the price you want, you may just leave, and then there is a very big probability that the sales will offer you a lower price.
Tonight, when I was watching TV, I saw a channel was posting a conundrum, and the interesting thing is they were offering cash for people the tell them the answer. Here is the question: When you buy it, is black, when you use it, is red, when you are done finish it, is grey. (This is a living good) HInts that the TV give us: people tends to buy the darker one. we usually use it more often during the winter.
