How Malaysian Are We All?

Ooooookayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy…moving along now.

Here’s something I came across while doing my regular blog-whoring the other day. Got this from my man Shah’s TalkOnly and thought I’d take back home to the Land and share with those who may be interested to give it a shot on this set of questionnaire.

You are required to answer all the questions given below and see how Malaysian can you be. 21-30 correct answers will supposedly make you a true blue Malaysian I guess. Those with between 11-20 correct answers, as according to Shah, can claim to be the average Malaysian. I am however, not gonna take your Malaysian-ness to task if your correct answers are less than 10 but I would seriously suggest you to quit mingling around too much with your neighbour’s hot Filipino maid.

On my first and only attempt, I only managed a sorry 13 correct answers which falls under “average Malaysian” category. Nothing much to be proud of I must admit.

Some regulars at his blog may have done this but It’d be interesting to see how well others would fair. The set of question goes first (in bold). I’ve provided the correct answer below the questions with my answer in blue. NO CHEATING guys.

(No idea why but question 14 is missing).

Hey, at least we didn’t cheat, so the answers were off-the-calf thing. Wish you could join us. Have a great weekend anyway.


Kak Pi,

I wonder which questions that you got it wrong. Could it be the question yang dari Ipoh tu? Heheheh…


Kak Shana,

Ok laaa…gotta give you some benefit. My first thought was the bird from Sarawak and went ahead with the answer. And same goes with question 20….heehehehe


Bailey,

Cant blame me la…that guy was so synonymous with that creature. Apa yang terfikir tu lah jawapan saya..hehehe…


CDO,

If malaysia were to have an official bird, enggang would be it. either that or gagak.
