Culture Rebels, Cultural Faux pas,and Culture Vultures

Posted by bababardwan April 8, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

I'd be interested in hearing whether any Poddies have ever found themselves being Cultural Rebels.What I mean is,have there been times when you've understood what the cultural norm in Chinese society would dictate in a certain situation but for one reason or another you've decided not to conform? If so,what was the circumstance and what was the reason? Alternatively,have there been times when you've made a cultural faux pas only to realise later? How much later?

Flip side:

Are there any culture vultures out there? [more Chinese than the Chinese] or do you know of any? examples?
