    Wouldn't translate or transport very well to the English-speaking West, as such familial and social extensions would never take hold.

    I'd have to disagree there Jeff. I see many more kids playing outside in cities in the west than I do in Asia. Hell, most parents I know in Malaysia and Thailand are petrified at the thought of letting their kids out of the house unless it's for 2 hours of private tuition.

    Also, lots of neighbourly cooperation on my street in the UK especially during the current crisis.

    In short, yet more anti-western world utter bullshit from ohoh.

    I could not think of anything in Thailand that could be transported on a plane, that I could not get in the US. But we are lucky to live in an area where there are many Asian markets near by,
    everything else is just as cheap and of better quality in the US. I even find Chang and Singha beer , but I have yet to find Leo.

    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    I think I noticed last week that they had started selling them in Coles. Defo some kind of spicy Mama brand noodles on the shelf.

    I'd also disagree with Jeff and the China-cvnt on this. The glorified ideas of 'native' children playing in waterfalls and rivers etc... nah, not so much anymore.

    Look at any sports field here, any hiking trail etc... - children playing.

    Asia? Not so much or hardly at all. (also, they might get dark and - egads - dirty)

    Interesting that a mainland Chinese who says he lived in Canada and the UK knows sweet f.a. about life, yet seems to be quite the expert on China, more so than people on TD who have loved and worked there - and still do.

    When I was back home in Scotland last year I found that kids just don't go out any more. They meet their friends every night online.

    Kids be kidding from home these days.
