Here is a digital shoebox of scraps of confusion found around Asia
Some Whys and confusions? and finding outs around Asia
In Myanmar, Due to strict rules on car imports. All cars are right hand drive relics mostly from Japan. They also drive on the right hand side of the road here...makes for interesting overtaking when in the passenger seat...
It is a bigger offence to injure a Cow, rather than a person in Nepal.
Kill a Cow and its off to prison!!
Urinals outdoors on the side of a building that drain into an open gutter/ footpath..awesome
Are You A Tramper?
In New Zealand a 'Tramp' is a Hiking trail. If you want to find a good local tramp, of which there are many of, just ask a local. A nice bushy tramp with plenty of wildlife please.
Most little kids in Asia, will have assless pants on, if any! this allows quick poo/piss release onto surrounding path or road.
As you walk past the AK47 armed military check-post in Chitwan, Nature Reserve, Nepal, into the lush tropical jungles of the Terai Plain. your guide armed with a STICK will show you the home of wild Tigers, Rhinos, Boar and other things that will eat you. WHY DO YOU JUST HAVE A STICK!! a small stick at that.
The overnight bus from Luang Prabang, Laos, to Hanoi Vietnam Takes about 20hrs, about 3 of these hours are spent hanging around a closed border until morning when immigration opens! WHY DONT YOU LEAVE LATER!! WHY?
Chinese throats are impervious to saliva and sputum. As such, these throat fluids must be gargled, gagged on, and wretched on, as loud and as audible as possible. Then spat out in as many public places as possible
Israeli is IsReali?
If you are travelling to Malaysia on an Israeli passport you wont get in because your country is not recognised/ exist
Big in China, Whitening Creams! Moisturizing creams, shower gels etc that bleach layers of your skin white so you look wealthier?! YOU DO NOT LOOK RICH!! YOU LOOK ILL AND GHOSTLY!! Similar in Vietnam, Girls and women will cover up in jackets with hoods and built in mittens to hid from the suns rays. The rational being, the darker you are the more time you have been out working in the fields, like a peasant.
Introducing the Q
Que's have yet to be invented in China, And as such, a ticket window is usually surrounded by a semi-circle off people with arms out wriggling. Long arms are beneficial here. So don't be too upset if you are skipped in the 'Q' as it never existed anyway!!
