Strange Ways Asians Celebrate New Year

As you’re preparing dinner or getting ready to watch your local fireworks show, have you ever wondered how the rest of the world is celebrating New Year? If you’ve always wondered, this is the post for you because we’re going to take a look at how some Asians celebrate New Year or New Year’s Eve.

How Different Asian Countries Celebrate New Year

Each Asian country has its own unique way of celebrating New Year. It may seem strange to the rest of world, but it’s unique to the culture. You have to admit, it would be interesting to find out how some Asians celebrate New Year, right? We’ve compiled a short list of Asian countries that celebrate New Year in the strangest way.

Nepal

The Ancient city of Bhaktapur is located in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley. The New Year is marked with a parade of chariots, beautifully decorated with the statues of different gods and goddesses of their faith. There’s also a big tug of war competition between those who live on the East side of the city versus those who live in the West. Whoever wins will have a more prosperous year.

Myanmar

The Burmese celebrate New Year in different ways, but in Burma, they have a Water Festival. To the rest of the world, this celebration looks like one big water fight because people are freely splashing water on anyone they see. But, the practice does have a spiritual significance. It started with the ancient practice of pouring water from scented bowls to cleanse the soul and make it ready for a sinless start.

Laos

Now, we go to Laos where their New Year celebration is based on Buddhist traditions. What’s interesting is a Lao New Year begins on April 13 or 14. The celebration typically lasts for three days. In towns like Luang Prabang, it could last for a week. You can expect water fights, sand being brought to the temples, and flowers prepared for Buddha’s images.

Philippines

Typically, the Philippines celebrates New Year with a New Year dinner and fireworks. But, what’s strange is that the Filipinos buy firecrackers and fancy fireworks a few days before the New Year hits. Minutes before the clock strikes 12midnight, they light up the streets with the firecrackers and the entire neighborhoods fill up with smoke for an hour or two.

Next year plan to travel to Asia to experience how Asians celebrate New Year. Who knows, you might find an Asian woman you can fall for. Wouldn’t that be a great end to a year? For more interesting posts about the Asian culture, check out the rest of our posts on our blog.

The Insiders Teach You About Dating Asians

Have you ever heard of the term K-pop? K is simply short for Korean, while pop, in this expression, refers to the music genre. Basically, K-pop is the shortened version of Korean popular music. It’s so popular that you don’t have to explain what the expression means to an Asian because K-pop is a booming industry even outside of Korea. But, what does this have to do with dating Asians?

How Studying K-pop Stars Can Help With Dating Asians

We’ll get to that in a little bit. First, you’ve probably already figured out that K-pop stars are the boy bands and girl bands of the Asian world. They’re like the Backstreet Boys or One Direction, only “upgraded”. We use the term “upgraded” because groups who attempt to break into the industry have to undergo rigorous training for one whole year before they are debuted to the public.

Now, we can talk about how K-pop stars can help you with dating Asians. A closer look at why Asians go crazy over the dancing, singing, and acting idols can give you some tips on how you can attract Asian women. Read the following tips that we can all learn from observing K-pop stars:

1. K-pop stars take care of themselves.

Remember that one year of training that K-pop stars have to go through? Well, it involves dozens of dancing rehearsals. This serves as a K-pop star’s form of exercise. You should also have some exercise yourself. It doesn’t have to be dancing. It can be any exercise that fits your lifestyle. Asian women are attracted to men who have a fit physique, so you better start working out now.

2. K-pop stars pay attention to style.

Are we saying that you have to dress up like a K-pop star? Not at all, because sticking to your personal style – a style that you’re comfortable with – is the best way to go. Just make sure that, whatever personal style you have, you’re updated with the latest trends, and you know what looks good on your body. It could also be time for a makeover, don’t you think?

3. They’re confident performers.

OK, so you’re not going to perform in front of your Asian date. But, you can show your confidence in other ways. The way you act, the way you speak and, generally, how you conduct yourself during dates will help your Asian date see how confident you really are.

4. Humility

If you’re not into K-pop culture, you’ve probably haven’t seen how K-pop stars address their fans. They’re very humble in doing so. While your date may not be a crazy fan waiting for your signature, you have to remember to be humble when on dates. Be humble when you treat waiters or servers. Be humble when you talk about your achievements and so on.

Do all of four of these tips, and you’re basically similar to a K-pop idol. With enough practice, you’re going to have Asian girls lining up to meet and date you! Just don’t forget to show off your personal style which is very important in the K-pop industry. For more dating tips, check out the other posts on our blog.

Dos And Don’ts Of Searching For Love Online

Thanks to popular demand, we’re back with more dos and don’ts of online dating. Don’t forget to check out our other dos and don’t posts, but before that find out what you should and shouldn’t do when you are searching for love online.

Searching For Love Online Will Be Easier When You Learn This

DO: Move things forward

Emailing and messages are a great way to start, but you can only get to know someone so well from written exchanges. At a certain point, it’s times to make things verbal and, eventually, visual. When the time is right, AsianDate’s Call Me and CamShare features are a great way to advance your correspondence.

DON’T: Move too quickly

Phone calls and CamShare are awesome, but not on the first exchange. Don’t set up a phone call with a woman you’ve barely talked to—it will be awkward for both of you.

One of the girls on AsianDate says: “Letters and emails might seem a little impersonal, but it’s actually really charming when a guy puts time into writing a thoughtful note. That definitely is something that would make me want to get to know someone better.”

DO: Say what you like in a woman

It’s totally cool to tell a woman the traits that you want in a partner. If you’re looking for someone who loves nature and traveling and wants a long-term relationship, then there’s no point in wasting your time talking to the queen of the Netflix marathon who just wants to be friends.

DON’T: Talk about your ex

It can be easy to get caught up in comparisons, but trust us: talking about your ex-lady is always a bad move. Even if you’re telling your new gal how much better she is, she’s probably not buying it—she’s wondering why you’re still thinking of your ex at all.

One of the girls on AsianDate says: “I once had a man tell me directly that he wasn’t looking for anything serious. He sounded kind of apologetic about it, but it was great. I wasn’t looking for anything serious, either, so we immediately knew we were on the same page.”

dating in china AsianDate

What You Didn’t Know About Dating in China

China is one of the oldest countries in the world, which means it has some of the oldest traditions. From religion to food to festivals, some of China’s most popular traditions today have been in place for hundreds, even thousands of years. We know what you are here about, though: courtship and dating in China. If you’re looking to charm Chinese women, you should know the culture they come from. Here are four things you should know about Chinese dating culture before wooing a Chinese woman.

This Is What Dating In China Looks Like

The Chinese don’t date in high school

Or they’re not supposed to, at least. In that period of life, Chinese students are preparing for the gaokao, the college entrance exam that will determine their post-high school fate. Anything that could distract from a good gaokao score is considered a big no-no. Of course, that’s not to say that some Chinese high school students don’t date anyway. They just keep their youthful romance a secret.

Parents love to get involved

If you’re seriously involved with a Chinese lady, get ready to meet mom and dad—and then meet them a few more times. Chinese parents are known for being intensely involved in their children’s lives, and that doesn’t stop when it comes to dating. Parents will set up their daughters on blind dates and will not be shy in telling them their opinions on the latest boyfriend. If her ma and pa are saying good things about you, then you’re doing pretty good, pal.

No sex before marriage

Both Chinese men and Chinese women value the notion of sexual purity, and many prefer to be married to their only-ever sexual partner and have that be true of their spouse, too. So if a Chinese woman is in a pre-marital sexual relationship with a man, it’s very possible that she expects to marry him. Of course, it’s the 21st century, and this isn’t everyone’s attitude. But ideals of monogamy and purity are still very common and important in Chinese culture.

Chinese women are expected to marry young

You may have heard this one before. The old idea that a woman’s value is derived almost entirely from her role as a wife is still very prevalent in China, and it puts a lot of pressure on Chinese women to marry in their early 20s. This, in part, explains why parents are so heavily involved and everything is so serious: the stakes for dating in China are quite high.
