Nali Nali

While Americans who receive a compliment simply smile and say: "Thank you", the Chinese have a very sweet way to refuse positive comments. They say:“ 那里,那里!”,that is "Nali! Nali!" which means "Where? Where?" to mean "Not me!" So if you want to have fun at dinner, you prepare your "Nali-Nali" card and get them out when people make a nice remark. Laughter guaranteed.
