When I was young I didn't like Japan exactly, my cousins and sisters were always talking about that country there, even I used to say
"What so great about Japan anyway...?"
tak kenal maka tak cinta right?
First thing first an introduction...
A major economic power, Japan has the world's second largest economy bynominal GDP and the third largest in purchasing power parity. It is a member of the United Nations, G8, OECD and APEC, with the world's fifth largest defense budget. It is also the
world's fourth largest exporter and sixth largest importer. It is a developed country with high living standards , the longest life expectancy in the world (the healthiest people in the world and have the lowest percentage of death) and is a world leader in technology, machinery,
Japan also has the lowest percentage in crimes. Regardless it's superior, Japan brings the Greatest Influence to the world.
The most infIuencable thing is I like how Japanese people chases modernity while keeping their culture perfectly and brings new culture while their at it.
Malaysia on the other hand chases modernity but seems to lost their traditional culture and followed the westerns.
The Japanese is still 10 years ahead of us in technology but their culture remained unharmed
Japan is a home to the bizarre cultures which bought the most interest for me.
Like the Geisha, samurai and ninja's. Even these days the japanese still wearing
kimono's and yukata (japanese traditional outfit)
Malaysia nowadays are going hippies and hip-hops (hik hok) and now the latest trend is
I'm tired looking at people doing Shuffle at school, bus-stops, offices,toilets...
I admit that I used to do Shuffle too but looking back its not as good as it seems.
On the other hand the Japanese people like to be different and proud at
their own culture.
They didn't even speak english. Talk about culture shock.
Talk about modern fashion and traditional entwines, yeah I like their fashion style from the top of
their head to the bottom of their sole. Imagine putting a woman's hairstyle to guys. And it actually looked good...
Here I discuss modern fashion in Shibuya (Fashion city) even if you were dressed half naked
people will call you 'normal'.
From the automobile to the food.
Sushi's and stuff no need for me to explain
Student's in Japan cares a lot about their future some would go for suicide if their failed their
Talk about peer pressure... But us Malays
" Ala add math aku 18 markah je.."
"eleh baru lapan belas, nah tengok ni kosong tau.. ele.. boleh celen ke?"
Japanese people were raised to be humble and respectful.
Japanese people lives in one community
search the internet for more information. ;)
Currently I have been studying japanese folklore which is very interesting.
Us Malays have 'Pontianak' and such they have monsters of variety like the furugasa etc.
The japanese people excel in many industries from the gaming industries to the machinery which is great.
After the death of Al-Capone peeps and gangs turned down the Mafia chart. But the Japanese
Yakuza is approximately 23% among the community. Cool tattoes man!
And talk about painful... :o
Japan have the most beautiful stunning mix of genetics
There is a lot more...
