Front page of NST today; Rude cities: KL ranks third. Oh, surprise, surprise! The city that came in first is New York. No surprises there. I still can't forget how nice the New Yorkers were to me. There were times when I was completely lost in the city; there were no shortage of New Yorkers who would show me the way through the subway system or to places of interest.

"Courtesy is not big in Asia, either. Every city on that continent tested, with the exception of Hong Kong, finished in the bottom 10."

True, how very true. Yet we are brainwashed to think how courteous, 'sopan', 'berhemah', 'kuat berpegang dengan agama dan adat-adat ketimuran' we are compared to the West. The truth is, most of us are rude and 'kurang ajar'. Most of us Asians are not used to the concept of smiling to strangers. We hardly greet each other. As a runner in the States, I was compelled to say 'hi' or 'hello' to fellow runners. In this country, they always look the other way as if I'm planning to rob them.
