I'm sitting in a conference room with 2 consultants from China, my German boss and Pakistani colleagues. Patience is wearing thin... we say something, repeat it twice, break down the sentences into simple English (and lose half of what we're trying to say). The consultants talk to one another for a good 10 minutes, then the interpreter translates and everyone's confused :S.

Yesterday, my boss abandoned me for lunch so the responsibility for entertaining our guests fell to me... I ordered Pizza Hut and talked about vacation spots in Shenyang :D. Waisay, we, as a nation learn to need to be more considerate of others' needs. Pakistanis love meat, so we assume everyone else must love it too :P. I'm ordering palak paneer for lunch today...
