[sorry. dinner was a bit "all over the place" last night]
Footnote taken from The Trouble With Malaysia, a Brian Yap essay from the book New Malaysian Essays 1
"Malaysia, Truly Asia" is the official tagline for tourism, intending to highlight how all the different cultures of Asia can be found in one country.
Which is true, because not only do we have Malay, Chinese and Indian Malaysians, there are Japanese and Korean expats living here, as well as plenty of places you can smoke shisha pipes in Kuala Lumpur.
