Ordering food

Ordering food when you don’t speak the language is always an interesting process. This morning it was no different, and we received a plate of rice with pork and two fried eggs, instead of two plates of food. The mistake is quite understandable as most people in Southeast Asia will share food and it is somewhat unusual for people to order their own plate of food. We, therefore, received one plate of food with two sets of cutlery. To their astonishment, we ordered another plate of food!
Another interesting culture difference. When you don't speak the language I would be afraid of what I would be served, especially since I do not eat meat. It would be days of rice and more rice. :)
