To do:
- Bow your head when walking in front of people who are sitting. Even better if you say 'excuse me'.
- Smile back when someone smile at you. And if that someone starts bothering you with the smile or the stare, don't jump at the conclusion.
- Start running away when you see several high school students gather in the afternoon and run at one direction. Run faster if adults decide to take this matter with their own hands.

Not to do:

- Throwing anything away, whether it's a garbage, spit, or your own biological waste, in a silent and abandoned places. Because no matter how alone you seemed, there's someone watching.
