their class background for political purposes while trading on their possession of cultural and economic capital. This elite has gravitated toward deeply rooted symbolic practices of power, such as sponsoring temple rebuilding and the casting of Buddha images. With the growing economic power of these new elite families, more conventional entourages have gathered around "big men," who demand deference, which was frowned upon in the egalitarian aftermath of the revolution.

Vietnamese cuisine is a style of cooking derived from the nation of Vietnam with fish sauce, soy sauce, rice, fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables all commonly used. Vietnamese recipes utilize a very diverse range of herbs, including lemongrass, mint, Vietnamese mint, long coriander and Thai basil leaves. Traditional Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for freshness of the ingredients and for the healthy eating style.

The most common meats used in Vietnamese cuisine are pork, chicken, fish, and various kinds of seafood. The Vietnamese also have a strong vegetarian tradition influenced by Buddhist values
The school system in Vietnam as in many other countries is strong on symbolism and weak on substance. Students who were graded 'level A' in English studies when asked simple questions sometimes will stare or smile and answer in such a way that one would think the student never studied English at all. The student will be happy to produce a large certificate of completion from a local public school but in reality be totally unprepared for a productive life. The public schools while long on seemingly conservative teachings (uniforms and many rules) in fact fall far short of the mark for educating the children to compete later in life. The same holds true for some of the very expensive International Schools. The Culture of Vietnam, an agricultural civilization based on the cultivation of wet rice, is one of the oldest in Asia Pacific. Most Vietnamese historians consider the ancient Dong Son culture to be one of the defining aspects of early Vietnamese civilization. There are some other characteristics that comprise Vietnamese culture: Areca nut chewing, đạo Mẫu, bamboo, respect for community and family value, handwork, and devotion to study. Malaysia Culture Government Food Religion Schools Fashion Entertainment Currency The indigenous tribes are the oldest inhabitants of Malaysia. They account for about 5 percent of the total population, and represent a majority in East Malaysia of Sabah and Sarawak. In Sabah, the largest official ethnic group is Kadazan, though many unofficially recognised subgroups exist. The same can be said of other ethnic groups, with as many as a hundred racial groups forming the state's population. However because many subgroups possess only minor differences, they are not always differentiated. In Sarawak, the dominant tribal groups are the Dayak, who typically live in longhouses if in the rural areas and are either Iban or Bidayuh.

Dong, which literally means "copper" in Vietnamese, was originally named for the currencies used when Vietnam was still part of French Indochina. After the fall of Saigon, in 1975, Vietnam changed the name of its currency to the "liberation dong".

Brunei's culture mainly derived from the Old Malay World, which encompassed the Malay Archipelago and from this stemmed what is known as the Malay Civilisation. Based on historical facts, various cultural elements and foreign civilisations had a hand in influencing the culture of this country. Thus, the influence of culture can be traced to four dominating periods of animism, Hinduism, Islam and the West. However, it was Islam that managed to wound its roots deeply into the culture of Brunei hence it became a way of life and adopted as the state's ideology and philosophy.

Indonesia Culture Religion School Entertainment Government Food Fashion Currency The name for the Indonesia Rupiah was adopted from the Indian form of currency, the Rupee. Prior to the Rupiah, Indonesia used the Dutch guilder from 1610 to 1817, when the Dutch East Indies guilder was introduced. The Rupiah was first introduced during the World War II Japanese occupation. Following the end of the war, the Java Bank briefly issued its own Java Rupiah as a replacement.

Entertainment in Indonesia is not only diversified but also colorful. The traditional entertainment here includes Wayang (puppet show), comedians, and traditional dances.
