DEADLINE: 16 September 2008
One of our bloggers QuaChee (his blog:
), being the true patriot that he is, has published a book called 50+1 Malaysia, in conjunction with Malaysia’s 51st Independence Day. The book is a wonderful synopsis of what makes Malaysia, well Malaysia.
It’s divided into seven sections (Food, Places, Things To Do etc), and keeping to its theme of ’50+1′, each of these sections list 51 items that are uniquely Malaysian. For instance, under the section 50+1 Truly Malaysian, you’ll find entries for Malaysian colloquial expressions (aiyo, syiok and boss); Malaysian textile and fashion (kebaya, songket batik), as well as Malaysian wildlife (tapir, Sarawak hornbill, orang utan).
To learn more about the book you can head on over to its ‘official’ website, the malaysia page.
