    $\begingroup$ Wow, just now (3 hours later) noticed that you came up with the same conclusion I did, but a few minutes earlier than I. Plus, you did it romantically. :) +1 $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Oct 6 '18 at 14:51

Still not sure, but this is where I am.

As QuantumTwinkie shows, #1 points to

Chinese things (chopsticks, China serving ware, Pandas).

As Joseph S. indicates, #2 might have to do with

The Language of Brazil, known as Portuguese.

For #3,

Gambling

An actor's name backwards or seven times three,

Jack Black/Blackjack

the 9d's and 20d's in D&D,

Dice/Craps

with strip or face; game sometimes shown on TV.

Strip Poker, PokerFace, World Series of Poker

This, all put together may indicate

Macau, China It is the gambling capital of the world and Macau's official languages are Chinese (Cantonese) and Portuguese.

For #2 are you

A pregador? (Brazillian preacher)

With office or novel; may lead to amen,

Pastor or theologian ("amen" is a common statement during sermons)

expressing ideas with one's lips or a pen,

language

the World Cup's been won most by this country's men.

Brazil (Brazil has won the most world cups)

Expanded explanation

The language of Brazil is Portuguese, the Portuguese word for a preacher is "pregador." (I have no idea how this fits in with Chinese culture and gambling though so this is probably all wrong)
