    :eek: O.k. It may not sound fair requesting your guys to reply. As I told earlier, I'm doing my research - so one of the input require how your guys think of Malaysia & her peoples. It doesn't matter; be if +ve or -ve. I need a natural opinion here. You don't have to disclose your biodata.

    Very sorry that those who wanted to assist (by replying me on the topic) will not be rewarded in cash (compare to online comm. survey). Within my capacity, I can contribute more to the tsr forum from now on and (some kind of inducement) I will be glad to give +ve point to those assisting me.

    I humbly pledge for assistance here. May god bless those kind-hearted.

    Thank you. :tsr:

    The school system is unfair as they favour muslim people, therefore if you're not muslim you're going to find it really hard to get into uni

    im malaysian and malay and muslim. the tertiary education system favours the bumiputeras or in english the people of the land, that is the malays and the indigenious people. you dont necessarily have to be muslim to fall into this category although most of the time bumiputeras are muslim. some are christian like my friend junior, he's catholic.

    it is provided for in the country's federal constitution that a certain percentage of places in public universities and a certain percentage of government scholarships are reserved for bumiputeras. at the same time there is a percentage for land and house ownership.

    without going into whether this is fair or not (the situation is more complex than most people perceive it), this policy was introduced because at the time of independence from the british the bumiputeras were very behind in education and business. thus the government, with the consent of the british and the consent of the other ethnic groups, added this policy. does by no means does not mean the other ethnic groups are not protected. the constitution provides for their protection as well.

    the root of the problem lies in the fact that when the british ruled malaya (as it was called before) they purposely segregated the different racial groups and discouraged interaction. as a result some groups managed to progress faster than others.

    the population is only 60% muslim.

    singapore also has a quota for the number of non-chinese who have places in university. for example it is practically impossible for a malay to get into their medicine faculty despite getting better grades than a chinese applicant.

    Capital is KL; includes part of Borneo; large ethnic-Chinese population; drivers are crazy hence everyone drives Volvos; food is brilliant and cosmopolitan; might benefit from some of Singapore's anti-litter legislation; monorail is v. impressive; still large parts of country with very poor infrastructure but others which make most of Europe look stone age; stable government if not always stable governments.

    Downside - very humid - but stunning thunderstorms; lots of snakes [girly shudder]; difficult to find clothes if you are not size 3;did I mention the driving

    A) I know that Malaysia ia a Newly Industrialising Country, with increased wealth being spread about its population as overseas investment and jobs grow in the country. The wealth in Malaysia is spread more evenly than in some other Asian countries, making for a higher standard of living among many people. I know that is classed as an emerging tiger in the economic and geographical senses. I know the capital of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur. Thats about it.

    B) I don't know much about the Malaysian people.

    Hi! Mr. Fox, Malaysian is a Commonwealth Country. Most of the system is formerly adopted from th British, like the Democratic Monarchy etc. I think Malaysia & British has some similarity in few areas.

    Anyway, nice to meet you.
