So after traveling a number of times in China over the past 8 months, there is one phrase that I now always recognize. Why? Because I hear it from Chinese people all the time. What is it? 皮肤好. I apparently have really nice skin (though my sister always calls me a ghost in family pictures). I guess that's what comes of spending all my time in a lab. :P What really surprised me is that even guys say this when they meet me! 美女，帅哥，老太太， 老爷爷，什么都说，“皮肤好”!
So I was wondering if anyone else has a similar experience? Is there a phrase you always hear whenever people meet you for the first time? I imagine a lot of you get 好高啊！ (I've gotten that one too...but I'm not really that tall - only 5'6".) Please share!
