  • Hey this is MatSan

  • And welcome to our culture section

  • today we're going to talk about

  • so let's get into it

  • our registration plate

  • in Poland

  • we have the numbers and letters

  • firstly we have the letters

  • the codes in the beginning

  • English codes

  • these can be 2 letters or 3 letters

  • everything depends on the city

  • and on the voivodeship region

  • that your car was registrated

  • take your car as example

  • you're from Lublin

  • so the code in the begging will be LU

  • and then following by random numbers

  • from the car plates

  • you can see which city this person comes from, right?

  • yea

  • that's quite interesting

  • and it's also our interest

  • when we're driving on the road

  • and I'm like: oh there's a car from Gdańsk

  • oh there's a car from Kraków

  • it's pretty fun

  • it's quite interesting on the streets in Poland to see that

  • and in Taiwan

  • we don't

  • the numbers are usually random

  • we use indicators

  • and flash of our lights

  • on the road to inform about something

  • so for example

  • when you're passing the car

  • and the car let you pass them

  • they give you some space to pass them easily

  • for you to avoid the car

  • you will usually thank them

  • by thanking

  • we use the indicator sign

  • which is this broken car indicator, the triangle sign

  • you just press it

  • it's gonna shine for a while

  • and press it again

  • so it means thank you? that's it?

  • and can it means sorry?

  • if you do something stupid

  • and you do this as well?

  • people sometimes do that as well

  • so it's thank you or sorry

  • on the road

  • also you can use the flash

  • for exmaple

  • for informing people that they didn't turn their lights on

  • or you can also do the same

  • if you want to inform about the police

  • the person who is

  • facing you

  • the car is facing you

  • they saw the police is there

  • so they will use the flash as well

  • to inform you, there is a police near you

  • so just slow down

  • it was fun in the beginning for me

  • he told me that you can press this indicator to say thank you

  • I'm like: wow I'm gonna do it

  • we use honk to say thank you

  • you don't?

  • no, no

  • we do this only when the accident is going on

  • or some retard is driving on the street

  • so we sometimes use that

  • to say thank you

  • reminds me of GTA V

  • in Poland, we got a law

  • that you can't sell alcohol to drunk people

  • not every shop cares about it

  • you can see that regularly that

  • people actually sell alcohol to the drunken one

  • but in Taiwan, there's even not a law like this, right?

  • yes, so far as I know

  • there's no law like this

  • but

  • I think it's because

  • people are not drinking that much in Taiwan

  • drinking is not a problem in Taiwan

  • so we don't have this kind of law strictly being set

  • but

  • I read some news

  • because

  • drink and drive, it is a problem

  • because of these accidents

  • people are trying to raise this topic

  • maybe we should set this law

  • like European countries, like America

  • but I don't hear much voice about this

  • and the next thing

  • Poland got Name's day, but Taiwan doesn't have it

  • Name's Day is different than birthday in Poland, right?

  • so you can have 2 birthdays basically?

  • I would say

  • younger generation don't do that at all now

  • we have Name's day

  • for example, I don't even know when is my Name's Day

  • everytime my grandma is calling me

  • she called and said: happy Name's day

  • I'm super surprised

  • because I don't even know I have Name's day on that day

  • how does it work about this Name's day?

  • we've got a calendar with names there

  • and your name....

  • for example

  • your name shows up at 16th of June

  • so that means on 16th of June, you got your Name's day

  • so is there lots of names in one day?

  • sometimes there are 2 names

  • sometimes...I don't know, maybe 3

  • Poland doesn't really do Name's day right now

  • it's mostly about older generations

  • because

  • they treat it as a birthday

  • they don't...

  • they don't really...

  • they are not focusing on birthday

  • they are focusing on Name's day more

  • and we're already like birthday people

  • so we rather spend time with our friends

  • on birthday

  • and also i think, it's because in Poland

  • the names are generally, pretty much the same

  • guys are like: Jacek, Mateusz

  • those few names

  • so it's easier for people

  • to categorize these names

  • because in our case

  • everybody got super different names

  • you can be super creative at names

  • train stations, bus stations

  • you have to pay for the toilet

  • it's pretty bad, because

  • sometimes you even pay 3zł

  • for one pee

  • and it's a lot, right?

  • yes it's a lot

  • just imagine, Poland is pretty big

  • comapring to Taiwan

  • and if you want to travel by bus

  • to another city

  • which will take you, for example 6hrs or 4hrs

  • there are stops in every station

  • so if you want to pee

  • you have to pay for evey toilet

  • also it's quite inconvenient

  • because of this long time travel

  • you're so nervous, because in the bus

  • there's no toilet

  • some buses do

  • I mean, lots of them, they don't

  • in this case, before you travel

  • you need to pee

  • of course you need to pee

  • and in the bus, you're like

  • I don't want to drink too much water

  • because I don't know when will be the next pee station

  • you're not that relax at driving

  • unfortunately

  • so in this case, train wins

  • I don't like train, but train wins

  • cuz train at least has toilet there

  • and you don't have to pay for it

  • but it's disgusting

  • smells, stinks

  • I had an experience in the train

  • that I went to the toilet

  • and the lock was kind of broken

  • because that train we took was pretty old

  • I'm like

  • ok, it's locked

  • then I'm peeing

  • after pee, I was going to wear my pants
