South by Southeast (SXSE)
Why Are Many Thais Afraid of Gheckos (jingjok)? And other Questions We've Always Wanted to Ask Each Other
"What's the deal with picking food off of another person's plate?"
"Why do people feel they need to correct my English?"
"Is it REALLY true what all the guidebooks say about not touching Thais on the head? - I see it all the time"
"Do western guys generally look down on Asian women?" - and
"Why are so many Thai women afraid of Gheckos (จิ้งจก Jingjok)?"
In this episode of #SouthBySoutheast (SXSE), Wimintra and I take the opportunity to ask each other many of the 'WTF' questions we have had after observing cultural nuances of SOME Thais, Farang / Westerners - Aussies and other cultures in general.
