RECEIVING WITH BOTH HANDS
I am a Chinese Indonesian and I was taught from young that when we receive things from anyone, whether it is a gift or even a test paper, we are supposed to receive it with both our hands and that to do otherwise, is disrespectful towards that person who is giving you that thing. Recently, from my ICS 7 class that I am currently taking, I found out that many other Asian cultures (eg. China, Japan) also practice this. For those who are Asian, do you also do this when receiving things from other people? For those who are not Asian, what are your opinions?
