It was said that Yuko and Ron also seemed to be satisfied with their own Brunei clothing. Kingfisher and Rhododendron Kangdingense, their national flower, deduct the unique customs of Brunei.
When mention Cambodia, people will think of the Angkor Wat, a very famous World Cultural Heritage, which is a place that people always want to go. The "Krorma", which can be wrapped around the head as a headscarf, or tied around the waist as sarong, is a kind of suitable gift to present to friends. Batagur affinis and Rumdul, their national flower, deduct the unique customs of Cambodia.

In Burma Part, Yuko and Ron turned into the Burmese students. In Burma, their national costumes are also used as student uniforms, such uniforms are usually the white blouse with green Longyi, so Yuko thought of chimaki when she saw these costumes. Tiger and Burma coast padauk deduct the unique customs of Burma.
