How many of you think you are so Malaysian like me? Malaysia is very diverse in culture and to the surprise, we able live harmoniously together although we come from different races. Why I always mention I am so Malaysian? Let's find out below.
Malaysian Local Food Is The Best
I am blessed with nice and delicious food and I still prefer our Malaysia local food. You don't eat Japanese or Western cuisine every for your breakfast, lunch and dinner, right? It actually hurt your wallet too. There are so many variety of local food that you can get it at any hawker stall with affordable price.

We Use Bahasa Rojak In Daily Communication
It feel comfortable and self belonging when you hear some people speak Bahasa Rojak. Below is some of the frequent word that we will use
Tapao please...(Take Away)
Dont so Kiamsiap lah...(Don't Stingy)
Kopi Peng... (Ice Coffee)
So Sayang lah... ( so waste)
Multi Language Country
What will be your answer when someone throw this question to you " Who are you?'. Will you answer I am Chinese, Malay or India? Or will you answer this person specifically like I am Hakka/ Hokkien and etc. To me it doesn't make any different as we are 1 Malaysia and we can speak multi- language. The basic language that we will learn from School are Malay and English. Plus we have our own mother tongue likes " Mandarin, Cantonese, Punjabi, Hokkien, Tamil, Bahasa Kelantan, Bahasa Sarawak and etc. I feel secure and comfortable with our own languages.

We Still Believe in Taboo....
When we are small, our grandma always mentions " Don't ever whistle at Night time as it will bring the bad spirits. Scientifically, taboo cannot been proof real or will bring harm to us but we still believe on taboo.
Do you parent told you not to shake your late when sitting as you will shake always the money? What else that you adapt since you were young?
If you sneeze once, people is thinking of you. Sneeze twice, someone scolding you and sneeze third times, you better see doctor as you will get sick. See, this little taboo actually been spread from one generation to one generation and to me, no harm we apply some of it. Don't too over into Taboo as it sometime will ruin our relationship.
