The Post 80's & the 'Me' Generation

Me, Me, Me. I was born in the 1980's in France and I was interested in how the Chinese 80's generation was comparing to mine.

The waitress regularly refills my cup with some kaixui (hot water), and if you carefully choose the time of the day when you're going, you can even
