One Example is Durian. Westerners say it smells like ROtten Fish and why? But in the Tongues of Asians(South East Asians to be specific) it smells good(not heavenly) and we even make Durian Candies~! I like to eat durian candies... LOL




(I DONT EAT BUGS)

Another Example is Fried Bugs. Thai and Indonesians Practice it and they well, eat it. lol. I find it weird(not to mention disgusting, sorry for the word). But Study shows that Crickets and Cockroaches have more than 100% Protein than beef when fried, and 200% when dried than Beef~!





I took these facts from National Geographic..~~~ Reliable source!

I am Japanese person and find that weird.

I don't really find that weird. I feel that Durian doesn't have a nasty smell, but a unique smell. But their are places in the US where people eat fried bugs, although I probably couldn't bring myself to eating a fried cricket.

You were probably watching "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerns" cause he had a show on eating bugs.

I think I read this in my english book...

"Westerners" find it awkward when people bow in front of them. Isn't it that most of us welcome each other with like a handshake or a hug or a smile, but some Asians bow in greeting right?...

yeah... so that's what I understood in the book... well, i never really read that book anyway...wahaha

Mostly Japanese, Korean and Chinese Bow but its not as common as it used to be. I won't bow to my friends haha just maybe to elders or boss or someone who is of importance.

Westerners find it funny since they have a different custom. Thinks that are not a custom then are viewed as weird, to any race or person that is.
