briliant and funny!
Essentially a tiny peninsular found to the north of their slightly less anal cousins who live on an even smaller island Singkaypoh, Malaysia is a young nation of diverse cultures and races such as Formula-1. Moving foward with a vision as a collective community towards the vision of becoming a developed nation by the year 2020, 4040, 5050 or whatever catchy number.
Malaysia was once known as Malaya but the additional letters 'si' were added between y and a. The word si, in cantonese(sei)/hokkien/teochew/hakka, means die. So basically, Malay-si-a means Malays Die Ah?
It is made up of 13 states namely Selangor, Kedah, Terengganu, Kelantan, Pahang, Penang, Johor (just north of Singkaypoh), Sabah, Sarawak(which reluctantly joined MALAYSIA as a state), Perlis, Malacca, Perak and Negeri Sembilan. The three federal territories Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan don't count as states since they're too small anyway, like Taiwan. Another common state that Malaysians have is denial (aka. no lah, where got?), which incidentally, is a river in Egypt.
