Oftentimes your Chinese friends may greet you by saying: "Have you had anything to eat?" You were puzzled. This is a typical small talk in China though. How do you respond in an authentic way?

 Hi Becky 
I am actually interested in the usage and  meaning of the word " jiù" in the following sentence 
 Hái méi chī, wǒ mǎshàng jiù qù. 
Its look to me the same like the word huì - "will to something"

It's always a nice feeling to be liked^_^
You can learn Chinese here first, and then when you come to China, you can talk to me in Chinese! 
By the way, where are you from, Gilberto?你来自哪里(Nǐ láizì nǎlǐ)?
