|This was sent to me by a Malaysian who's working in Africa. Thought I'd share it.
You can name all the players from the the English Premier League, but ask you to name one football player from Malaysia, one name also cannot come out.
When StreamyX came, you complain StreamyX too slow. When Maxis Broadband came, you complain Maxis Broadband always disconnects. When WiMax came, you complain Wimax too expensive. In the end, you say StreamyX still the best lah.
When toll price increase, you complain. When petrol price increase, you complain. When you go Starbucks buy RM10 coffee, NO COMPLAINTS.
When you cannot find parking in a shopping mall and have to walk very far, you complain. When you go inside the shopping mall and there's SALE , run from one end of 1Utama to the other also NO COMPLAINTS.
You always talk about where to find the best Hokkien mee or another makan when you meet each other.
You are always late. And the excuse you give when you're late is always
either: (a) traffic jam (b) no transport or (c) cannot find parking.
You have a parent who force you to take science stream in high school, study engineering in Uni, then when you graduate, they ask you to forget everything you learnt in Uni and do commerce.
You know someone who can specially develop an angmoh accent when speaking to a American/British/Australian.
You complain against the government in kopitiam, you talk loud loud. Leave anonymous comments on blogs, you also talk loud loud. Attend ceremah by DAP, you shout loud loud. Then when Opposition organise a protest and ask you to go, you don't want. Scared later kena tangkap by ISA.
Every year on the 30th April, you are one of the people below queueing up last minute to submit your tax return at the IRB.
When you pay RM10 for something that costs RM1, you blame the Chinese.
When a government service is too slow, you blame the Malays.
When a building is not good and collapsed, you blame the Indians.
When a Chinese student won a scholarship, you say 'Wah! Very Clever, hor?' When a Malay student won a scholarship, you say 'Aiya! Of course lah! He Malay mah!'
