In Japan, they always kneel in front of a sitting customer... you've probably experienced that in nicer Japanese restaurants...

haha, I only eat relatively cheap in Japan.
There are plenty of nice place to eat in Hong Kong anyway.

I thought kneeing in front of a shoe purchasing customer is a bit too much. Due to my chinese custom, men ought to knee only in exceptional situations.

$8K.... well lawyers don't knee in front of their Clients in IPO offer projects....

there are several "ways" to win the lead IPO...offer your client several pairs of $8K shoes.....

stuff them in paper brown bags.
