    We are not too get using on close body contact

    by iretyc Written Mar 16, 2003

    Local people here are mostly not quite get using on close body contact like, kissing on cheek, a great hug for greeting or goodbye

    People sometimes are quite shy in answering foreigners approaching for question raised. Though we are shy, most can still offer assistance for help in giving proper direction. Esp in English or Mandarin

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Leaving chopsticks sticking vertically into the bowl is a bad omen. This resembles incense sticks in a bowl of ashes, a sure death sign.

    Say sorrry & excuse me alot, works great. I hear it alot. Ask for help anything to holding a door to directions, people respond. Go with the flow, pedestrians don't use left vs. right as much as the flow, like water. Stand/on right, walk on left on moving walkways, sidewalks. Efficiency is key so just proceed through a door to keep things moving. Be polite, don't talk loud, learn phone etiquette. Don't put shoes on benches, seats. Learn why/when to wear a face mask. Never cough/sneeze into the open air/ use elbow, you'll get the stink eye.
