One’s salary in China is almost a public domain. It is very common to talk about one’s salary, even in daily life conversations. Chinese are particularly interested in how much westerners earn. Never get offended when the inevitable question : How much do you earn? (ni3 de shou3ru4 duo1shao3) gets asked. If you do not feeling comfortable answering the question you can always say:My salary is sufficient (wo3 de shou3ru4 gou1 le). This answer will always be accepted with no further questions.
