Daily etiquette - handing over things

There are some habits I have had a chance to encounter only in Myanmar. Though in many Asian countries left hand is perceived as dirty since it is reserved to dirty things, in Myanmar (except for Muslims), it is more about showing respect than hygiene.

When in Myanmar, when shaking hands and handing over money or food, use only your right hand. Bow a little and touch your right elbow with your left hand while passing on things with your right hand.
