Another intriguing experience she encountered was the endearing habit of strangers referring to her as "love" or "darling."

A TikTok user humorously added that being randomly called "mate" by strangers should be included in the comment section.

The list includes:

1. They drink tap water here.

2. Nobody uses their car horns.

3. No air conditioner or ceiling fans here.

4. Get ready to be called "love" or "darling" by strangers.

5. Saying thanks to the bus driver is compulsory
