Look for our daily tips here. On Sundays, we have ‘How To Tips’ which helps you to manage day-to-day chores and situations. On Saturdays we give ‘General Tips’ and on Mondays we give ‘Health Tips’ which will help you follow a healthy lifestyle. You are in the middle of the week and if you are lost for what to wear and how to look and feel better, we provide ‘Fashion/Beauty Tips’ on Tuesdays. Gadget news bombard you every day, but ‘Technology Tips’ are what really matters, so watch out for those on Wednesdays. Thursdays, hurray weekend! It’s time for shopping, so take some ‘Shopping Tips’. Yes, Fridays when you are with your family, and it’s time to make some personal reviews, on that day we come into your life with ‘Happiness Tips’.
When it comes to using knife and fork, here are some quick tips. See that the fork is on the left side of the plate and the knife is on the right, so you remember to them in respective hands itself. To cut into food on your plate, pick up and hold your knife in your right hand and your fork in your left hand. Bend the wrists, so that your index fingers are pointing down towards your plate.
What's more, you can express many things by leaving the fork and knife in different positions. If you leave fork and knife tips close but holding part wide apart, it means you 'haven’t finished the food'; if you are ‘ready for a second plate’, leave your fork and knife in a cross position; If you leave fork and knife parallel and close to each other in horizontal position, it means ‘food was delicious’; if the fork and knife are parallel to each other in vertical position then you mean ‘finished’; and if you cross the fork and knife at the tip, you means to say ‘you did not like the food’.
BASICS: Keep the unfolded napkin in your lap. Keep your phone in mute. Start your food only after everyone is been served. Use a knife and fork to cut meat and cut one piece at a time. Close your mouth while chewing and please don’t talk food in your mouth! Don’t reach across the table, seek help. Never ever pick your teeth at the table. It’s a real bad manner. Say "excuse me" when leaving the table.

BASICS: While out for dinner, please allow the host to guide you to seat. The best chair is for the guest of honor. The host sits on the left side of the guest of honor. Others are offered seats around the table.
Come back next Sunday for more 'dining our tips'!
At a formal dinner you wait for the hostess to remove her napkin from the table and unfold it in her lap, then you follow. At informal dinner, place the unfolded napkin in your lap immediately.
Similarly, at formal dinner leave the plates for the staff to clear. At informal places the host or those close them will clear the plates.
