The Idea: Dining Etiquette

We learn about dining etiquette through our children days by having an adult yelling at us. As we grow up, the yelling gets lesser but we never really did learned. As a grown up now, I only realize the importance of well behavior.

Many times we may have made a fool of ourselves or offended people without us knowing. Sadly, the explanation - "I don't know" is not an acceptable excuse anymore. It may work once or twice but not forever.

On this site, I will share what I have learned from both hard ways and easy ways. Like it or not, we are in a society of being constantly judged. Most commonly, judgments are passed either at the dining table or in the restaurant. That's why you may even treat this site as a business dining etiquette site.

This site is not about getting you to nail the interview or score during the date, but allows you to approach the meal with more confidence. You will learn about food, drinks, dinning etiquette, and respectful behavior. Not only you will be more relax and able to enjoy the meal as well. For those who are interested to know more, you may contact your local etiquette/ personal development coach or get a book on etiquette.
