I've looked at the Chinese written character for bag.But it appears slightly wrong to what it looks like in my Chinese dictionary. Am i correct?

The Chinese character for "bag" is "包." What does your dictionary say?

很好(hěnhǎo)!Very good!
You'd better say "请(qǐng)给(gěi)我(wǒ)两(liǎng)个(gè)西红柿(xīhóngshì)和(hé)五(wǔ)个(gè)鸡蛋(jīdàn)." Please give me two tomatoes and five eggs. 
Note that when number two is used before a measure word, you should say "两(liǎng)" not "二(èr)." You can take a look at this Wen Bar lesson to see the difference between "二(èr)" and "两(liǎng)."  :-)

Hi ji,
Thanks for your suggestion. But it's not allowed to have a gun in China...
