You know you are not in Malaysia when...

Thursday, July 28, 2005

My sis was in town for a couple of days for work obligations and meeting her makes me homesick. I guess seeing a familiar face after so long makes one miss home.

Here are somethings I miss about Malaysia that makes living an adventure... I guess.

you step on the zebra crossing, no one tries to run you over.

nobody runs the red light.

you can't find any Ali Maju cafe in the area.

no one steps up to you during dinner and ask if you wanna buy the latest 'movie'.

ladies expose their oversized handbags.

nobody comes and collect old newspapers from your house.

you can't find Ramli burger.

the Policemen seems bigger and build.

the road does not stink after the garbage truck comes by.

you take less than 30 minutes to find a carpark in the shopping centre.

traffic jam? what traffic jam?

shopping centres closses at 5:30pm

All hail Australia man. You got to love this place. Better, cleaner and...well...just damn polite.
Most are true apart from:

no one steps up to you during dinner and ask if you wanna buy the latest 'movie'.

Illegal Chinese immigrant has been wandering into fast food joints in London doing this.

nobody comes and collect old newspapers from your house.

They do on Wednesdays at my place for recycling purposes.

the Policemen seems bigger and build.

Well, I have seen midget policemen before...

traffic jam? what traffic jam?

Traffic in Central London is probably heavier than KL. Also the Motorways at rush hour.

shopping centres closses at 5:30pm

Shopping centres close time range from 6-8pm same with dept stores. High street stores mostly closes at 5.30pm although 8pm for Thurs.
