Soo youd eat a cock because people usually eat the chickens not the cock for some reasons.

Well they wake you up in the morning so probly like it and are too cheapass to buy an alarm.

They might just taste the same.

I find it weird when you get loads of people taking up skirt pictures of some girl and shes milking it by putting her leg up and stuff.

I find it sick how Koreans eat dogs and all kinds of animals.

And all them things considered to be an aphrodisiac like dolphin penis and stuff.

If you're from the Philippines, there's this dish that is made up of these bugs that they catch in the fields. They look like beetles... I forgot what they were called I think it starts with the letter B. Someone tell me if you know what I'm talking about! xD

Anyway, I absolutely hate Durian. I never learned to like the taste. D:

I never ate durian in the past 13 years and... 362 days. O_O But is it that weird? I'm so use it lots of stuff that i can't find anything weird. I don't find the Ganguro weird at all.

"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.


yeah!...exactly! I kinda remember what the topic was about... I think it was the differences in cultures... coz i have an english class for multilinguals... so we talks about those stuff..

well.. us Filipinos have the placing of the back of the hand of the elder/person way older than you to your forehead... well.. I think its a dying art....


yeah, i don't really know what english term to use for "mano" but my family still do this custom, and there are times when i forget so the elder would just offer his hand to me, lol. XD

Japanese do this stuff. I have lived in Japan for like three months and I got used to it. I find it a nice way to say your gratitude; say goodbye; or even welcoming people. I even do this practice here in the Philippines though.

I haven't eat Durian 'cause it smells bad though my friends do like it. Another thing, some places here in the Philippines eat worms - the one from coconuts I guess, bugs (for that matter), farm rats, snakes (the internal organs even the blood) and many more.

it's Camaro. it's not a beetle or a bug. it's a field cricket so it's not harmful to eat and edible.
