Observation


before i came to the US, i have always thought and taught that most westerners are WAY taller than us asians...i'm my mind, they are always pictured as a feet taller than me and with the build of arnold susah-nak-eja (scwarzeneger)...

the theory is not entirely true and also not entirely wrong...from what i've seem these few days after living a new chapter of my life in the US:-
  • tall men are a rare breed in the US...in my observation, only 1 in 40 people are a foot taller than me...
  • 60% of them are as tall as me (174cm) and 30%+ are shorter than me...
  • toilet walls are too short...if i were 3cm taller, i can see the other person next to my toilet shitting...they built short wall despite that majority of them are tall people...funny...
  • one thing i noticed here is that most men have body-builder-type body (they're like too obsessed with body building).
  • most women here wear shorts (really short shorts), thight t-shirts to show of their boobs (kiddin'), and eat ice cream when the temperature is at 9 degree celcius!
  • sunglasses/shades are like must-have item in their inventory...the sunlight here in the US is way more hot and have high glare...without shades, my eyes are like burning and i have to lower my vision to the floor while walking...
  • helmets are only highly recommended here and not compulsory...so expect to see people riding scooter without any helmet...
  • the math level among the white men are low compared to the malaysians...they learn addmath level math at college when the malaysians already learnt it at form 5...

heh...well, it would be good if we're better at everything...the white people are very competitive in other than math...and they always ask brilliant questions...hope that i can have their matured way of thinking...sigh...
