Custom and culture in Indonesia is truly totally opposite North American custom and culture. On (almost) a daily basis, something is being said to me that is offensive, that I usually just have to shrug off. These things have made me a more resilient person emotionally, but I think it is time that I start sharing these things because :
#1 – This is my diary
#2 – It’s really funny (if you’re not me)
*I was at the mall looking at some dresses for the Chinese New Year, which is just around the corner. I found a cute dress at a reasonable price, the only problem was the size; it was an extra large!
So, I turned to one of the clothing shop ladies and asked if they had a different size (it looked way too big).
She then turned to me, picked up the dress and said, “Don’t worry, it will stretch!!” She then proceeded to pull on the sides of the dress, showing me exactly how big it could get.
