thanks buddy, no worries about being thick skinned just for a good trip.

i heard that i should speak english instead of mandarin since my proficiency of cantonese is only 1%.

true that they speak and understand english better than mandarin?

thanks in advanced! maybe i'll post up my compilation to share once i have a complete and good list.
Depends where. In high end restaurants (read expensive) where foreigners go they can understand English. Other than that Mandarin would be better. Now a lot better as they are dependent on Mainland Chinese for a lot bulk of business and will try to respond in Mandarin even though they don't speak it well.
