新年必问问题 Awkward Chinese New Year Questions

There is no better time to catch up with your distant relatives and friends besides CHINESE NEW YEAR!

最开心的时光莫过于亲朋戚友聚在一起谈笑风生(华人新年除外)…过年的亲戚朋友总是会变得特别“关心”你,你觉得呢?

But fret not! Our comprehensive field guide is here to help. Here are 3 popular CNY “inquisitions”, and the smart ways to answer them.

别担心,我们在这里过几招给你“防身”

Question 1 – “Ah boy/ girl, still single ah?” 经典问题1:”还是单身啊?”

We absolutely hate this one, and we know you do too.

Yes, you’re still single. Or worse, you recently became single, and now have to justify your reasons for not having a significant one.

关注你的终身大事是他们的使命,《是否单身》依然是新年的热门话题问题,不管你喜不喜欢,你至少会被问一次

Solution:

“Auntie, I think you are good in Math. Do you know the expenses comparison between being attached and single? You may do the calculation”

回招:

阿姨,你的数学应该还不赖吧?你应该知道单身和有伴侣的消费差异吧?

Question 2:

Did you gain weight?

你好像肥了hor…

If you’ve been working hard to keep fit and slim, this question will feel like a cold splash of water and is sure to make you lose your appetite.

如果你是正在积极减肥的一群,这也许是你重重的一击。

Solution:

-Smile- Thanks for noticing me so well, I will maintaining my good life.

回招:

“谢谢你的提醒,我会继续幸福下去” -微笑-

Question 3:

What job you working as now? My son/ daughter is…

No doubt, these kind of questions from your relatives about what you are currently doing can make you feel panic or low self-confidence.

Remember stay calm & polite. They are your relatives, after all.

又是另一道“致命”问题,千万别让“专业人士”的爸妈打击了你小小的心灵。即使他们刻意

Solution:

“I see… (speechless)” and Run. Away

回招:

“哦…” 然后完美离场

Got it?

你学会了吧?
