Haha! Interesting read.

There's a good reason for the first one (about beating around the bush and not talking straight to the point). It's because in Asian culture, there are very strict rules of politeness in social interactions like when talking. And there's also the concept of "saving face" and not embarrassing other people, so we avoid being too direct in our speech.

The queuing thing is so true! Hahaha. And it's so true that we love the rain much more than the westerners. =)
