    Like left-handedness people suffer from what some people regard as illnesses.

    By the way, Zydee, are you fan of zydeco music? I like it a lot!
    nah JC, i don't think you have stirred much, not like you used to do. hey, seems as if you are losing your touch in your old age, huh? :)
    maybe you should start over on a new name.

    seriously... i really liked your previous avatar. it was cuter, and softer, like i am sure you are if someone bothers to get to know you better.

    i am glad you have accepted my left-handedness illness, and feel flattered that you remembered my comment some time back :) such acceptance are always welcomed by a muslim person.
    also, being left-handed allows me to keep up the connection between my typing, and my brain waves... something a right handed person like you would really appreciate.

    thank goodness zydeco comes to mind when you read my name... unlike other meanings which you have informed people of! hillbilly music sound cute the first two tracks, but afterwards it can get a little boring... so in response to your question... i can take zydeco music in moderation. unfortunately, i don't have such a strong stomach as you do.

    keep well, pal (",)

      Good grief, somebody's referring to my old age and I'm barely fifty!

      The new avatar is by the same artist as the previous one, but now that days are shorter and colder I have to wear a proper hat.

      Glad that you also found zydeco music acceptable. Actually I don't like very many pieces at one go either.

        Certainly is strange though... something as simple as greeting each other is acceptable in one culture and is completely unacceptable in another...

        Over here in the UK, its no problem seeing two women walking hand in hand (or arm in arm)..
        In places like Pak and India, two men walking in the same way would be considered 'normal'..

        However, if it was vice versa in the repsective areas, the majority of people would stare with disapproval and disgust..

          I don't know if I see the new avatar clearly...
          But aren't you dribbling something from your right nostril?..

                  Indeed, we should learn to understand different practices. I also see more or less acceptable that women walk together hand in hand, but as soon as someone in my part of the world sees a man walking hand in hand with another man, or two men kissing each other, that's a clear sign of homosexuality and that is often very difficult to accept. Unless you are gay, of course.

                  Here on Ummah I've learnt that homosexuality, even left-handedness, is sometimes very difficult for Muslims to accept.

                  Maybe we should learn to accept the fact that everyone else is never ready to accept.

                    The artist like too much the red colour, face its too red, the cheeks are perfectly rounds, i not like it:( may be the man its happy because of Christmas but its something false in his happiness.
                    In Romania the man shake hands and the women kiss the wind around of ears. fake kiss.
                    I always thought its arab custom to kiss each other on cheeks.Good topic,

                      Yes, people like different colours. Red was among my favourites as a child. But is it better than any other colour? Islam may prefer green, but on what grounds?

                            assalam-o-alaykum

                            kissing: male-to-male gives me the creeps. I haven't seen it in Pakistan or Bangladesh, or India. except older relatives or family friends to children.

                            but women have started to rub cheeks, i guess they have learnt from the Gulf & other Arab countries.

                            holding hands with is also a no-no with me, but here it is a sign of friendship.

                            although it is not necessarily a sign of homosexuality, yet it does not seem right.

                            & of course such intimacy with your wife or children is all right. In fact even with grown-up children it would be difficult. I think my children would explode if i kissed them or held their hands in public.

                            but on Eid days or on other special occasions, we can & do "Muanaqa". I don't know what to call it in English.

                            I did not realise that kissing was so wide-spread. this thread has really been educational.

                              We kiss 3 times

                              3 times on the left cheek, 3 times on the right cheek, Thats very common with Arabs :)

                              In New Zealand, Maoris have something called hongi

                              Their greeting is,

                              They press their nose against eachothers nose. With eye Contact,

                              Thats being respectful for them. :)

                              what a world, So the cheeks and hugs are not that bad when you hear that lol

                                Lateafha, I've also heard of that Maori greeting. But have you heard of yet another greeting, putting bottoms against one another?

                                I heard of this practice decades ago and I can't remember any more where you can find it.
