A Typical Malay in Foreign Land

Just Shy

Always grinning, as any foreigner will tell you, he’s friendly by nature.

But at the same time, eye brows droop. Could be a sign of either, modesty or puzzlement. Because everything around him is changing drastically.

He thinks life is fun, but religion and government rings at the back of his head, at ALL TIME.

He is scared of his mother, father, grand dad, grand ma, aunties, uncles…

He tell friends, he misses home but actually wants their attention.

He bagged ‘A’  for general knowledge, the world, history, geography and politics. But disappointed because he comes from a far away land, a place between Thailand and Singapore where nobody ever heard of.

His stomach is made for rice, curry, durian, belacan and a lorry of chilli. He’d suffer withdrawal symptom if he hasn’t eaten rice within 24 hours.

He comes back home and complains about the turtle Internet.

He is a keen football fan. Knows a lot about his National team which can sometime be excellent, but often disgusting.

He also pays attention to fruit season.

  1. He wants to mix around, he really does..

    He’s jealous of his friend who knows how to mix around, if only he knows how..

    But at the end of the day,frustrated as he is, he’d rather stick to his own kind for safe, security and comfort..

    typical typical ❗

  2. “place between Thailand and Singapore where nobody ever heard of.”
    tb2 teringat 1 post kat kenny sia ttg sorang lelaki perancis yang tak tau malaysia kat mana,tapi bila sebut singapore baru kenal…
    malaysia masih jauh ketinggalan berbanding singapore kah? 😕

  3. he’s the only one who thinks durian smells good~

    he thinks snow will go well with syrup – ABC satu!

    he’ll be under panic attack when served with bacon or anything pork related.

    hmm, it’s all about food- typical. 🙄

  4. haha..so funny and may i add some points here

    He thinks better late than never or ‘Biar lambat asal selamat’ hence come late to any meetings or occasion.>>hate this ❗

    He thinks we are all a courteous race but then forget to give seats to people in need >>can see this in LRT and Buses nowadays..

    ok then..i thinks anyone else also have an idea about this. btw NH can i link u to my blog.ngee 😆

  5. how about you?..but personal opinion having someone ( I mean typical malay) among foreigners will make other malays (non typical malay) not to forget their identity…sedar diri la.I mean..that’s good..isn’t it?

  6. I wonder why are you being so defensive? I wrote what I witness, what I saw. Dont blame me for being brutally honest.

    One of the malay traits, Tak boleh ditegur.

    and I never claimed I am a Malay nor a bumiputera.

  7. yeah. I sincerely I admit I am.

    but it doesn’t mean we have to be like that, right? 😆 ..omg. i think it’s a wrong statement 🙄

  8. land between thailand and s’pore, that’s right. i actually had to put it that way back when i was schooling in the uk to kids who had no idea where m’sia is.

    kids go off to study in the uk, us, oz and nz, came back english still hancur. why? because they only gather with their own flocks most of the time. such a waste of opportunity. to those who made the most of it to brush up on your english, kudos.

  9. most of mat salleh at my office think that Malaysia is Singapore yang sebenarnya hanya ciput kat bawah nun..!!! Takde siapa nak sekolahkan diorang ni.. 😥

  10. yep…just like what kenny sia wrote in his blog about how he describe where malaysia is in the world map to a french guy…
    malaysia still very small compared to singapore n thailand
