Last week, we asked 30 or so Malaysians what they thought about Singapore. You can read their responses here. And because the river runs both ways, we got our intrepid freelance reporters down south to ask their fellow countrymen (and women) what they thought about Malaysia. Uh oh. Looks like it’s our turn now to kena hantam.
Anyway, big shout out and thanks to Ed, Penny, Theo, Karen, Lydia, Greg, Ann and everybody who helped out. Many thanks too, to all who volunteered to have their pictures taken. And so without further ado, let’s start with…
Yep, that’s what we thought too. In fact, our mealtime conversations (when we’re not busy looking at our mobile checking out places to eat) revolve around interesting places to eat, and what to eat next.
And that’s why our food tastes so, so good.
Aw, you’re always welcome to our open house during any of our week long festive holidays.
With folks from Indonesia, Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, Philippines and more everywhere we look, Malaysia has never been more Asian.
The best defense is a confusing offense.
Do you know how many Indian food jokes we know? Naan.
Proudly a Malaysian original. Ramly Burger even has its own Wikipedia page.
No matter how many times we knock those damned coconuts over our heads, we still can’t get our editor to approve our pay increase.
Daylight robbery definitely! Especially when it comes to how much I’m being paid to write this on a weekly basis.
Too true unfortunately. There are people suffering everywhere, and Malaysia is no exception.
Even ordinary A4 paper is tastier in Malaysia.
Unlike Singapore, if you make an illegal u-turn or something, you can (often) talk the policeman out of giving you a saman.
Next thing you know, people will be referring to our country as ‘Bolehland’.
This seems to be common thread …
We have so much space, we even opened a space centre in Banting.
It’s in our DNA. Ayam not making this up.
We love you, Singapore! And that’s the truth.
Um, did we do something wrong?
Except for some of our politicians who seem to have their head in the clouds.
Quick, somebody call Mike Rowe!
Yummy! One of our favourite places too.
Some would say the butter is spread evenly on every slice. Speaking of which, where’s that intern? She forgot my sandwich again.
Ouch! Alright, ok already.
I have a friend named Albert Law. Whenever he goes on an overseas trip or something, Malaysia is always Law-less. That what you mean?
All this talk is making us Young & Ravenous too.
Not when it comes to sports. Yeah, now we’re talking!
We’ll never tell you to go back to your country.
You know what? At the end of the day, this is probably the truest statement of all. Well, except when it comes to food. And sports. And maybe a few more.
Singaporeans: What do you think of Malaysia? Tell us in the comments below. Got an idea for a future Singapoke article? Anything also can la. We’re kinda desperate already. Leave your thoughts below. Thanks!
