I really love this comment:

'...she tries too hard to cover up her non-native  English accent'

that's called learning a language, mate! Next time you try to speak Mandarin ask yourself this: am I trying too hard to cover up my non-native Chinese accent?

I often eat in a small restaurant near my apartment. The 老板 likes to sit and chat with me while I'm eating. Every time when I leave, I have to fight to actually pay my bill. Only when I repeatedly say: 给我面子 he accepts my money, but never the full price.
