Sagaladoola :

Definition for what is Malaysian should start from the simple things in life.... Reading above makes me think that these simple things are those that are unique to Malaysia.

The answers to those questions above transcend the boundaries of race. Definitely these are better than a massive wastage of massive fund during uncertain economy times to make 'roti canai' and 'teh tarik' in space.

Images from the movie Matrix "bullets storm" comes into my mind when I think of the "teh tarik" action. Sheesh.. hahaha.

Anyway, I could only answer a few. If you know the answers, please post a comment to reply (in BM or English)

Thanks and Regards...... Malaysia BOLEH !
