Day 1 Reflections

Today was our first day in Thailand. We were assigned our rooms, before having dinner together. I learnt about some of the dishes in Thailand that we do not see often in Singapore, such as green curry. Then, we prepared our cultural activities fir the next day, through which I learnt some basic thai, as well as some actions which are not supposed to be done in Thailand, such as showing someone the soles of your feet, or touching someone on the head.

Through this day's experience, I learnt to appreciate the culture of Thailand, as well as learning to be sensitive to others' cultures and beliefs.
