  1. I am not sure but i think we talked about this before. i knew where jack’s from about why he said 多謝 when everything’s(dinner) done. it’s because you are not going to talk in a time span so you want to show your gratitude more sincerely. let’s say when you trying to help someone do something you got many steps to do. we shouldn’t keep saying 多謝 because it’s too much when we are going through those tasks, so in those steps, we would just say 唔該, and when the work is complete we’d like to give a sincere thanks for him we would say 多謝. in mandarin we said 多謝你的幫忙( Really thanks for your help)
