I found this article on 'kissing' in "The Malaysian Women's Weekly" which i find particularly interesting as its published in a Malaysian magazine. This is simply because I find Malaysia a country who cannot accept the general view of its people.
As a student of law, I have studied a little on the Malaysian Constitution, and can clearly see that this is not a very open-minded country. Yes, we are allowed to follow are own religious law, but if you look closely you see that we still are grounded by lots of the Islamic laws.
As for today, i want to highlight this article that was published in the august issue of the women's weekly simple because i feel that the more they publish, the more they encourage! You and I, both have heard lots of stories of people getting caught by the cops for making out in a public area. Well its Malaysia, and although its constitution has no such rule for non-muslims, we would still be considered breaking the law as it is said to be breaking an obligatory law of behaving immorally in a public place. I have not heard of such cases in any other countries, but if you have please tell us your story.
As for the article, here is the few kissing facts i adapted to woo your taste buds:
