Mr and Mrs Chen Guan Seng, smiling carefully at each group of friends they pass
, slowly thread their path through the closely packed tables towards the almost
empty one at the front of the room. Here, at a larger table bedecked in a red table

Mr. Chen was right. The soup was delicious. Soon our table was filled with
platters of shark's fin, roasted piglet, fried jelly fish and, of course, the famous
Dragon and Tiger Locked in Battle. It was one of the most wonderful meals of my
life, though I thought the leopard tasted like chicken. As a kindness to Walt, Mr.
Chen ordered plain white rice and some sweet and sour dish. Walt attacked this
food with a vengeance once he exchanged his chopsticks for a fork. In between
emptying and ...

In a cynical comment based on experience, the article quotes a Mr. Chen
involved in the information and technology business who states that by his
estimate the time period for each political cycle is about ten years. He figures
since the present cycle has been in operation about two years, he still has eight
years to make money under the present program pushing economic incentive
and market reforms. (30) Dinah Lee, "Taiwan Hits Illegal China Trade," The

I was given the seat of honor at the round table, the far stool directly facing the
curtained doorway. As host, Mr. Chen took the stool across from me that placed
his back to the door — the least of seats, traditionally, because of its vulnerability
to assault from outside the booth. Food began to arrive, many courses, until there
must have been twenty, among them crisp Szechwan duck, mandarin fish in
sweet-and-sour sauce, soup in a hollowed melon. The 74 DAUGHTER OF THE
KHANS.

Would you like some cream or lemon?” “No,” he said, shaking his head. “
American people, me no understand. They put their tea in a pot and boil it, then
they put some ice in it to make it cold, then they put sugar in the tea to make it
sweet, then they put lemon in it to make it sour. American people, me no
understand.” Jan smiled ...
