|My First Customer in 2018|
This young man is an Indian school decoration contractor who arrived in Guangzhou on the first day of 2018 for office and lab furniture, aluminum windows and doors and playground equipment. For 3 days we made a lot of phone calls and visited quite a number of factories. He was happy with his visit and with my services when he left Guangzhou for his home contry.

|A Visit to Fancy Cake Stand Makers in Guzhen, Zhongshan City|
Only eight days after a visit with Canadian customers to Guzhen, the lighting town, for a specific lighting product, I came again with another customer to source a fancy cake stand. It's hardly imaginable that lamp fixures and fancy cake stands are made in the same kind of factories, and some of the parts look so similar to each other that they can be used for both purposes. We visited the lighting fixture & cake stand maker's factories, and asked their permit to take a couple of pictures. The following is a picture from the maker's website.

|A Most Embarrassing Interpreting Experience|
This customer from Columbia, Jose by name, had been in contact with me for quite a long time and I had even managed to figure out how to pronounce his Spanish name. And when I drove to Guangzhou Baiyun Airport to pick him up on April 26 and tried to sound out what exactly he was looking for, there seemed nothing unusual. He was just about to visit one potential supplier, the address of which, he did not know yet at that moment. The next day, we met again in the lobby of his hotel, China Hotel, a marriot hotel near the Yuexiu Park, and I drove him to his supplier and, a most embarrassing thing happened: his product is a medicine that cures cancer and he wanted to discuss with his supplier about the production details, that is, how the raw materials shall be preserved, how the production facilities shall be kept up to GMC standard and how the production process shall be conducted. Plenty of technical details that are beyond my understanding, even in Chinese! It must be admitted, the guy is really nice, and his supplier, though rather poor in English, is willing to help. Through much exchange of views on the understanding of each technical term, we managed to settled the business, and my customer was happy to finish his business trip to Guangzhou. However, it's no less than a lesson that every interpreter must learn: communicate as fully as possible with your client before the start of service to avoid any interpreting accidents.

|American Client Visiting Canton Fair for Car Seat Fabrics and Leather|
Mike is a car seat maker from the United States. He came to the Canton Fair for car seat fabrics that he needs badly. The Canton Fair did not let him down and he found two fabric makers, one of which is located in Jiangsu Province. We then decided to visit the fabric maker in the hope to find more similar factories. After landing at Changzhou Airport, we hired a car and drove from Changzhou, Suzhou, Wuxi until Changshu. We did find some fabric makers and flew back to Guangzhou with some interesting leads.
