You can see it in the following way: in addition to giving a meaning to its existence, you include a new special and necessary member of your family.

Asian culture

Culture profoundly influences the way people perceive themselves in society. These perceptions are difficult to express because in the majority of cases they are internalized, but they are revealed in behaviors and especially in consumer behavior. This is one of the ways individuals express their personality and aspirations.


The most marked difference between Western culture and Asian culture is undoubtedly the relationship to the group. Indeed, Asian societies are strongly collectivist, whereas Western societies are rather individualistic. Asians need to find a place in society.

In Asian societies, it is important to belong to a group. They must absolutely be accepted by their peers, rejection, and exclusion being very scary subjects for them, individual desires being secondary.

The relationship to self-esteem is also different between American culture and Asian culture. American education, for example, attempts to instill in students a high self-esteem to stimulate desire and self-confidence. Whereas Asian education, on the other hand, emphasizes modesty and discretion. This is why men who move to Asia for sex tourism are looked down upon.

Statutory products arrive in Asia

Status in Asian society is therefore very important, which is why they attach great importance to their dress and their attitudes. When they buy a product, the price, the brand and the presentation of the product must match their social status.

Conspicuous consumption

The importance given to social recognition makes Asians the consumers most attentive to their image. The importance of the status imposes in fact to project the “good” image, which generally corresponds to Western high-end products. Hierarchical differences must be clearly visible to all. That’s why luxury groups sells more than half of its products to Asian consumers.

Christchurch continues to shake with three major earthquakes and over 7000 after- shocks, parts of our city are like living in a warzone.

There are significant numbers of families still without use of water or sewerage. Some of whom have been living in these sub-standard conditions for over 9 months, since September last year.

Winter is upon us and sub-zero temperatures are bringing a new set of challenges to Christchurch families already under stress. No longer able to stay with family and friends or in temporary accommodation, hundreds have returned to their damaged homes. Many are living in only one or two rooms struggling to find warmth, pay for increased power, replace bedding/ basics and to provide winter shoes and clothing for themselves and their children.

Delays in EQC and insurance company claims are not helping recovery which seems at times further away than ever.
