My girlfriend whose family hails from Hong Kong has recently lost her grandfather, and her family is in a period of mourning. Being an "outsider" of the family, how should I act/behave when visiting her family?
I'm aware there are certain rules to follow, but i'm just not sure where I stand in case I offend them (i've heard of some families being insulted by "outsiders" taking part in business that has nothing to do with them).
I just want to help them get through this tough loss, and be as respectful as possible. I've googled around but I am sure there is something I am missing. I wasn't sure whether or not to bring roses (valentines day), or if we can still celebrate her birthday (she said we might not be allowed).
Sorry if this is question is posted in the wrong place.
