Dining Etiquette From Around The World

January 13, 2015 | Comments Off | Topics: Culture |

Slurp your food.

It’s considered very rude in Japan and many other Asian countries, including China.

 

Eat only with your right hand.

In India, the Middle East, and some parts of Africa, it is considered unclean to eat with your left hand.

1145 50 of the Worlds Best Breakfasts

1. A full English Breakfast – it must have beans, sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, hash browns and toast. Of course, it should all be knocked back with a cup of tea, but black pudding is optional as far as I’m concerned.

The Drunk And Passed Out Businessmen Of Japan

August 7, 2014 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Culture, Interesting |

pictures of passed out drunk salarymen of Japan

This is a culture where drinking parties are job requirements. It’s a place where you can market a product that lets you consume more alcohol while getting less drunk. Think about that for a minute: You pay 100 yen for a product that lets you consume more but feel it less. This only makes sense in a culture of competitive, shot-for-shot drinking, where keeping pace with your coworkers and superiors is rule ichiban.

Sixty percent of problem drinkers are salaried businessmen who claim that getting drunk with clients or coworkers is part of their job and a mark of company loyalty. To refuse a drink from the boss is a terrible insult that can damage a career. And although alcohol consumption is now decreasing in most industrialized countries, it has quadrupled in Japan since 1960.
