good jazz scene
booming performing arts scene
curry puffs and onde-onde
bargaining
cheap taxi fare
air tebu + coconut flesh
lotsa public holidays
entertaining conflicts between prime ministers

we can brag about our totally cool island getaways
as well as the towers that used to be the tallest building in the world

(something cool about malaysians : they know the exact age gap between siti nurhaliza and datuk k, the entire background of datuk k’s previous marriage and even the exact age of his kids from his first marriage.. but they dont know that pluto is no longer a planet. and then when people try to tell them, they dont believe.)
