UnRegular Food – Locusts


Locusts is a meal that eaten it in Yemen, African countries, Also some of the gulf countries. They believe it is a cure for some diseases like: (Rheumatism – back pain – delayed growth of children), but it is not good for the people who are suffering from epilepsy.

How Rude Was That

1.Burping at the end of a meal:

  • Its rude in the UAE culture because  it is impolite and sickening.
  • It is not rude on other cultures because it means that they enjoyed the meal so the chef we know that his food was good.

2.Arriving late for a meeting with no explanation:

  • In UAE culture it is rude, they must be on time because their is someone is waiting them and the must respect the time and the people.
  • It is not rude because the person who came late might have a personal reason that he can’t tell.

3.Arriving early and “pitching in”:

  • In the UAE culture its not rude because the person might need a help and the person who arrived want to help him so cooperation is good.
  • It is rude because they don’t like someone to help them, they might think that they will ruin their things.
