Social behaviors are influenced by culture and surroundings, Western culture have their ‘thing’ and in the Eastern culture have our own ‘thing’.

Let’s take a look at some of these stereotypical examples that differentiates us from our Western counterparts.

The moment when we see someone kissing in public, we say ”Haram” or ”Get a room”
