The way to give business cards in China is to both pass and receive a card using both hands. The person giving the card will also present the card with the words facing the receiver. This way the person receiving the card will immediately be able to read it.

It is also polite to address the person with their job title and name directly after receiving the card.

I'd like to hear the "culture shocker" that you have experienced.
