Origin of the “sniff-kiss”


Dear Hillary,

I read and been told not to touch Thai girl on head because Thai think very rude.  What I wanting to know is how do you kiss Thai girl?  On the hand?


Dear Wolfgang,

This is why the Thais have the “sniff-kiss” which is like the “air-kiss” of Europeans, which I expect you know about.  Instead of making kissy-kissy noises beside the ear, Thai people make a gentle sniffing sound beside the cheek.  Much more romantic.
