My friend’s son studies at one of the Czech universities.
Recently she went to visit him. She decided to lavish her son’s classmates, mostly Czechs, with Kazakh national dishes, and served a dinner in the dormitory. Before the feast, the son suddenly said to his mother: “Mom, just do not pull your handbag from Dior and iPhone-6 out in front of my friends, please”. “Why?” – surprised my friend. “You know,” the son replies, “it’s not customary to boast about your wealth and display it here. It’s a bad tone. They’ll laugh at me then. ”
Can you imagine how shocked my friend was? As she is from Kazakhstan.
