• @jd33 same here. I don't drink and have never drank a pint in my life. Will get sick probably after 2 shots of vodka. However, I know this and would never attend a business deal meal with a Chinese businessman because there will be no way I'll be able to get away with the deal done without drinking...
  • @jd33 it depends on the host's opinion on this. it's like when people accept food from other asian mothers, but leave it mostly untouched or spit out the food. if they insist on them eating, then can't blame them for how they treat the food. but that's why this custom has to stop (the force tradition.) it's important for michelle to bring up this topic to highlight how dangerous and disrespectful it is for this obligation to exist. one of my gfs is Asian and gets severe Asian glow when she drinks. unfortunately her hubby's Italian and his Italian family loves wine. and even though she's politely declined many times, they still insist on her drinking. now she accepts the cup, but lets her husband drink for her. i mean, these are her in-laws so it's not like she can be rude to them. but in michelle's case, that dude is a nobody. she doesn't have to give a crap about him. and putting him on blast helps him and others to see how his behavior is abominable. maybe if enough women start protesting this behavior, the coercion will stop.
  • @coralie thank you for that advice. But wouldn't that be worst if you take the glass but not drink it? The smell of alcohol makes me sick so if I accepted the glass I would've thought they'll expect me to drink it.
  • @jimmyszeto Better safe than sorry motive or no motive. Not everyone is a fan of alcohol. Why couldn't he just offer her tea then, that'll save them both face.
  • @lianna thank you for your reply. But I'm someone who don't drink, the smell of alcohol makes me sick. So if I was offered a drink I would refuse it, and if someone insist I drink with me constantly saying "no thank you" I would be annoyed if they continue to pester me. Food is a different story, even tho you're not hungry at the time you'll still nibble to be polite, I'll be happy to accept food even if I've eaten because I love food. But alcohol will be no. So I can understand Michelle refusing the drink.
  • @jd33 If there is a motive everytime a chinese businessman persists in you having a drink then all the chinese businessmen in China would be arrested for suspected drugging/potential rape. Everyone knows that it is disrespectful in China if you refuse to drink a sip after being requested. Then to randomly accuse the man of having a sexual motive with zero evidence is just ridiculous....
  • @jd33 it's a difference of culture. You know how you go to an Asian parent's house and they always offer you food or drinks? It's the same thing here. Drinking is part of a culture in China. People drink alcohol like its water in China. They drink during lunch, dinner, after dinner, karoke, midnight, etc. It's kind of rude to not drink alcohol when its offered just like its rude to not accept food/drinks from an Asian parent when you are visiting.
  • I think she's right not to accept that drink. If he had no other motives then he wouldn't try and enforce the drink. Don't want her to be another case like 'Y... M.'.
  • I had no idea he was battling cancer, such a good actor. Glad he's doing good for himself now and with so many great people to support him. Louis Koo is such an amazing person and yes with a great heart. He's kind to people and here respectful to the veteran artistes.
  • @jd33 Stephy is 35 and looks older than her age. She tried to bury her face with tons of makeup, which makes her look even older. She must be getting desperate for marriage nowadays as she is reaching close to 40. They remind me of Demi moore and Ashton Kutcher. Mark my words, this couple will not last, he will dumped her once he had enough fun with her. Little boy and older sister relationship never ends well.
  • He can do so much better.
