down south

My niece is back for a 2- week holiday. She is residing in Australia. Down south has done her good, she looks well and fresh. Hmm, maybe no boyfriend stress as she is still happily single.
What she likes most about western culture is the non-judgemental attitude of the people there. You do your own thing,dress as you like , and nobody judges you.
So this sets me thinking, are we asians so ready to judge another? Before we bother to find out the real story behind a person's action, we would already be gossiping about him at the nearby coffeshop or starbucks, whatever.



  • i think everyone does it, just that Asians do it blatantly :P

    How's your C'mas preparations?

  • I think basically asians, and I refer to some of us are still at the bottom of the hierarchy of needs. We haven't grown to the level of society maturity as the west have.

  • asian or caucasian, we are all guilty of judging other people at one time or another. some just do it more discreetly than others, or in a passing thought... ;)
