11 Signs You’re a True-Blue MALAYSIAN CHINESE

Malaysian Chinese constitute 24.6% of the country’s population. Most of the members of the Chinese community in Malaysia have these things in common:

  1. You know of at least one good ‘makan’ place located under a big tree, called the ‘dai shue tao’ stall.
  2.  

  3. A common advice you hear from elders is “Don’t be a busybody. Mind your own business”.
  4.  

  5. You are racist to a certain extent.
  6.  

  7. Regardless of how racist you are, you can’t resist a good plate of nasi lemak and roti canai.
  8.  

  9. No matter how hard you try, sometimes you still refer to your beloved countrymen as well as the beautiful people from certain nationalities using a term ending with the word ‘ghost’ in Chinese.
  10.  

  11. When you encounter any difficult situation, the first name that comes to your mind is Michael Chong (even if you support the Opposition). Okay… I know what you are thinking, maybe some of you will look for Hannah Yeoh or Lim Lip Eng.
  12.  

  13. You’ve been brought up to think that money can settle almost everything… including some sticky situation that even Michael Chong can’t settle.
  14.  

  15. You never pay attention to the starting time stated in any wedding dinner invitation – it always starts at 8.30pm or later. After all, many hosts aren’t even there yet at 6.30pm or 7.00pm sharp.
  16.  

  17. The first college that comes to mind when you are looking at affordability and course recognition is TAR College, no matter how unhappy you are with MCA.
  18.  

  19. You have a male relative or friend who is known as ‘Ah Boy’ to everyone even when he is 40 years old.
  20.  

  21. Your neighbour, friend, relative or yourself have a dog named ‘Lucky’, ‘Happy’ or ‘Ah Choy’.
