Guideline: Expiry Date??? O-o

A YEAR ago, TODAY (12/1/2016) at this hour I was at AIRPORT waiting for my FLIGHT and I was so EXCITED as its going to be my very FIRST time to build SNOWMEN with my BARE hands!ㅋㅋㅋ However TODAY, I was sitting here in my SMALL room cherish those MOMENT.. I wish I can TURN back the time! lol It's been the FIRST time on JANUARY I was sitting at HOME after a few YEARS I traveled ABROAD, what a different FEELING!ㅠㅠ I wish I'm NOT here now instead at somewhere else..

Ok lets STOP whining, and back to the TOPIC above. At FIRST I have NO idea about THIS, I mean everybody check EXPIRY DATE, BEST BEFORE or USED BY when they buy FOOD or BEVERAGE right? Then why we DISCUSS about this?O-o, It is because many COUNTRIES have DIFFERENT way to READ it.ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I only NOTICE this when SOMEONE asking me HOW to read EXPIRY date in KOREA! Then pop up on my MIND that I should WRITE about this.ㅋㅋㅋ

Maybe some of YOU might WONDER why its IMPORTANT to talk ABOUT this right??ㅋㅋ Well for a TRAVELER like me, of course it is IMPORTANT to know HOW to read it PRECISELY as I cannot FALL sick due to my OWN ignorance. FAILURE to check the EXPIRY date of food or beverage during your TRIP may LEAD you to have FOOD POISONING. I know in most COUNTRY, they WON'T sell anything that PASS expired date however sometimes people MISS look about it.ㅋㅋㅋ  

Lets' CHECK on how to READ expiry date either at FOOD/BEVERAGE or even COSMETICS at your COUNTRIES after this~ At my COUNTRY, we READ our EXPIRY date by DATE following by MONTH and YEAR. However in KOREA, its DIFFERENT. Their EXPIRY date is by YEAR, follow by MONTH and DATE

I TRIED to ask AROUND and check on INTERNET but I COULDN'T found SPECIFIC reasons why it is DIFFERENT from ONE to ANOTHER. One of my friend said, maybe its ACCORDING to their COUNTRY calendar/DATE  system CODE. Most WESTERN countries apply GREGORIAN Calendar so MOST of them use DATE, MONTH, and YEAR (DD/MM/YY). While on NORTHEAST ASIA most of them USING their OWN calendar like LUNAR, IMPERIAL calendar so they READ it by YEAR, MONTH and DATE (YY/MM/DD)
