When faced with a bowl of noodles in hot soup in Asia,
- Asian customs dictate that you make slurping sound when you down that bowl of soup. It makes it easier to drink, and the resulting sound of satisfaction will make the owner proud. This is considered customary.
- Western customs dictate that you drink relatively quietly. But if you do that in Asia at a noodle place, it is totally weird to the locals, but normal back home.
What do you do? Slurp or no slurp?
