pards buti pa dyan sa inyo may 5days holiday kayo...eto yung lagi kong inaabangan eh ang buhay buhangin..:)
ever, nandito kasi ang sentro ng pilgrimage. Milyun-milyon ang dumarating kaya ang "resources" nila concentrated sa okasyong ito. Para walang problema, pinababakasyon nalang ang mga taong hindi kailangan sa Hajj.
Hahaha! ganu'n po ba?! ...sa bagay tama nga yan, kapag tumagal ka na sa isang lugar, magagawa mo na rin ang mga bagay na nakagawian na nila.Sa akin nga mismo nangyayari na rin eh.-------------Happy Holidays!
All my life, I've been trained to maintain eye contact with people, especially at work. Because of that, I got into a bit of trouble when I first moved to Malaysia. The unbroken eye contact was misconstrued by several officemates as 'interest'! Until now, I have to keep reminding myself to break eye contact every now and then when talking to a member of the male species here. As they say, old habits die hard.Enjoy your long holiday! We only have one day off on Monday.
Enjoy the break!
Enjoy the break. It's EID here also. =)
hehe.. mukhang boksingerong may tatoo kasi yung tindera e :)enjoy your Hajj break !
totoo nga yan. naalala ko nung sinabi ng tatay ko sa akin yon. ingat sa bakasyon.
Here in Korea it is a custom not to have an eye to eye contact to any person you are talking to especially to strangers or men or women of title.Younger people who maintain eye contact to their elders when talking are often deemed disrespectful.
That is probably the reason why hubby's uncle did not get married, he was afraid the girl she might fell in love with is owned by somebody... hahaha
grabe ang higpit talaga dyan noh? buti pa sa iran ok lng tignan ang mga babae, puede rin kausapin pero bawal hawakan, maski handshake man lang.=D
Di talaga ako pwede dyan. Bitay aabutin ko. Mahilig akong mag people watch eh. Hehe.
RJ, e 'di ang tawag mo na sa kachukaran mo e "mate" at "Mondie" o "Tuesdie" na instead of Monday or Tuesday? : )Mimi, nakakailang sa una, pero nakasanayan na rin. Kung minsan kasi, ang mga babae pa nila ang titig ng titig. Para bang sinasabing "I dare you to look at me". : )Panaderos, thanks pards.Ms.Jo, Eid Mubarak din sayo!bwzone, thank you.donG, sumakit din ba ang batok ng tatay mo sa kakayuko? : )ed v., different country, different custom talaga ano. People will think you can't be trusted or you're hiding something if you don't make eye contact while speaking sa Pinas.sheng, baka naman takot sa babae? : )theo, mas maluwag pa pala sa Iran when it comes to this. Iba ang perception ko because of what media feeds to us.abaniko, watching people is okay as long as there is no eye contact especially with the women.
Ah, ganoon ba? I think to be safe, I'll just wear a pair of heavily tinted sunglasses when I peoplewatch. Hehe.
abaniko, hehehe, yan ang gawain ng ilang pinoy at arabo dito. Kahit nasa mall naka-sunglass para lang makapag "bird watching". : )
buti na lang dito sa pilipinas ok ang eye contact ng matagal. kahit magdamagan pa kayo magtitigan ok lang hehesana na enjoy mo bakasyon
abou, dalawa lang ang kahihinatnan nyan. Eye strain or muta. : )
talagang sinuyod ko yung buhay buhangin mula 1 hanggang 14 ang gaganda kabayan sana parating meron, thanx for sharing kabayan.(kumakaway mula sa bansang china.)
Allow me to post a note on your blog Mr. BlogusVox...because I like reading your blog.It has been 11 years since i was in KSA for almost three(3) years and speaking of NOT staring or looking to arab women in that country, until now I still tend NOT to look straight into the eyes of people whom I talk to, even fellow Filipinos...in the Philiippines and here in KL, Malaysia.Likewise spotting a liquor on the table in a pinoy-gathering makes me think we should "hide" it. Anyone who had been in KSA knows the punishment for drinking liquors...:-)
Olay, you have absorbed deeply these arab culture. But that's normal for someone who have stayed here for so long. Ako nga, kinakapa ko pa ang iqama ko kung nasa bulsa kahit nasa pinas. : )Thanks for dropping by!
