2. Never accept a compliment graciously

You may find yourself at a loss for words when you compliment a Chinese host on a wonderful meal, and you get in response, "No, no, the food was really horrible." They expect you to say works like " mama huhu(马马虎虎)" or " Na li, Na li哪里哪里" whenever they tell you words like, "your Chinese is very good" while some will say, "your Chinese is very guda"  ...

never cause a scene in public? unless you are a couple fighting you mean, or the plane is late, or someone is giving something away for free. I've seen so many public outbursts and fights it's ridiculous.
as for a lot of those other tips, true at first but once you gain friendships they slip away a bit. In fact, fighting over the bill and constantly exchanging gifts is something which discourages more socialising I find. It makes it hard to relax and enjoy deeper friendship, so when you are lucky enough to get past that your friendship becomes deeper.
