comment Complimenting someone on their appearance
@50-3 No it's not enough, spoken and written Mandarin can be very different in many cases. Also you may want to clarify whether you are in or desire a romantic relationship with that lady or you're just normal friends; Would you like the word/phrase to sound objective or convey strong personal emotion; etc.

comment What exactly does 媽个八子 mean?
@AgreeOrNot If you listen to 单田芳's storytelling 《乱世枭雄》 or 《民国十大军阀演义》, you'll understand how the phrase is actually pronounced and how it's (extensively) used by the Northeastern warlords to show defiance to others.

comment Complimenting someone on their appearance
@50-3 It would be good if you can scope down on these factors: casual or formal, spoken or written, descriptive or appraising, and gender and age of the person to be applied.

comment Chinese idiom for “tilt at windmills” or “fighting against windmills”
From the existing answers and comments, we can conclude there is not a single Chinese counterpart which matches all characteristics of the English phrase. It has to be translated differently according to the context.

Maybe it's just me but use 东亚 for China sounds arrogant. 东/东方/远东 for China sounds fine, although they are also much more than China, can't figure out why.
