xiǎo Liáng ，xièxie nǐ yāoqǐng wǒ chūxí zhè chǎng pǐnjiǔhuì ，jīnwǎn wǒ xué le hěn duō gēn hóngjiǔ yǒuguān de zhuānyè zhīshi ne ！
Xiao Liang, thank you for inviting me to this wine tasting event. Tonight I learned a lot about the red wine profession!
tài hǎo le ，hěn gāoxìng nǐ xǐhuan ！wǒ hái dānxīn nǐ huì juéde cānjiā zhèyàng de huódòng huì ràng nǐ juéde bù zìzài ne ！
Great, I'm happy you enjoyed it! I was even worried that you might feel out of place attending an event like this!
zénme huì ne ，wǒ hái kǔnǎo zhe lǎobǎn měicì dōu jiào wǒ tì tā tiāo píng hào jiǔ sòng kèhù ，shuō yào ràng kèhù gǎnshòu dào wǒmen de yǎzhì pǐnwèi 。wǒ xīnxiǎng tiāo dìgōuyóu wǒ hái zàiháng yīdiǎn ne ！
Why would I? I'm always wracking my brains every time the boss asks me to pick a good bottle of wine for him to give to a client, saying that it must make the client aware of our refined taste. I always feel that I'd be better at choosing between gutter oils!
nà dàoshì 。zánmen hē guò de dìgōuyóu pà shì bǐ hóngjiǔ hái duō le ！bùguò ，nǐ zhè wèi quánnéng zhùlǐ shì zěnme gěi lǎobǎn tiāo jiǔ de ya ？
I know what you mean. We've probably drank more gutter oil than wine! However, how do you, such an all-powerful assistant choose alcohol for your boss?
