Western and Asian approach towards life....a realistic comparison

So interesting!

That's why, I wanna be sharing it in my blogs both of English and Myanmar Version.
Thanks to send with mail to me, Mr. Latt.
I like mostly of approaches like Asian, but a few only like western.
I hate self-centered approach. I think it is forwarding to not only individualism but also selfish. I just want to be a person helping hand and like to stay inside social circle so as to enjoy gathering with family and friends, solving their problems, and know each other's business. It makes me giving the meaning of my life.
