  1. Very interesting comparison. I don’t know how true are these informations but I do believe that there are also some differences between asian people too. For example Japanese are similar to Korean, Chinese and other Asian countries are similar to each other. It’s a good stereotype view that is true for most of the issue related in the title. I like the asian lifestyle anyway ;) also food!
