Thank you for your advice. My supervisor has informed me that I will make a team with several other new PhD students on a big project and we will be responsible for what we are interested in. So, I won't work alone. That's good news based on your friend's experience. And I'm happy to see my Chinese fellows could succeed, that's really an motivation for me.
Best regards :-)
Hi Happy Satchi,
Thank you for your advice. It does help. I like your word "Just go with what you are comfortable with, as long as you address your supervisor politely". I am gonna figure out a way with the help of you guys.
And you are sure to be happy every minute with a noble mind ready to help others, Happy Satchi.
No wonder it takes me 5 times. He came to the same conclusion and the difference is he thinks more, so the conclusion seems more convincing. :-)
My supervisor's auto signature is his first name, so is it what he'd like me to call him? Maybe I should talk to him directly and let him decide.
I like it when you laugh. It seems to be relieving your stress, Stressed. LOL.
Thank you so much, Ejc, Livvie, Algaequeen and Cheekybint. This forum is just fantastic and I love it.
Now I think I know what to do after reading your valuable experience and advice and the questions seem to be not a big deal. As a novice, Ive found a place where I can pour out my troubles and listen quietly to your words.

Hi Stressed (you are using this name because of the mad PhD life?),
Thank you for sharing your experience. I should be prepared for a 4 year's PhD. As for the supervisor's name, I think I shoud get used to call him by his first names, though it seems a little disrespectful from a Chinese's point of view.
