Malaysia is a small country that is hardly visible on the world map. There are more than 200 countries in the world and I believe that the average person may not even have heard of Malaysia. Tell me when was the first time you heard of the word "Malaysia" and what impression does it gives you then and now? If you have not heard of "Malaysia", say so and then say what comes to your mind when you now hear this word, "Malaysia".

Terima kasi / xie xie !
LOL, I thought the first thing that comes to your mind would be: "I better hold my handbag tightly!"

No one said that never heard means doesn't exist. Have you heard of Burundi? And would you take the trouble to discover this tiny spot in the world map?
Hehehe....you got me...well, that why you have internet.just google, and you will get the answer popping out in front of your eyes.
Well to answer you, yes I will take a trouble to look and to find the answer.
Ctnahda, you are right if you want to know where Malaysia is. But supposing you have never heard of Malaysia and Burundi? If someone tells me Burundi, I would think it is a brand of liquor, LOL.
LOL...well,maybe you are right....but we should at least do some research before assuming something that we don't know.
Ctnahda, would I go running to do research every time someone says something I have never heard before? No, right? It all depends on interest. But the mind automatically associates the word with something on hearing it, e.g. nambikei, LOL.
LOL..WalterPoon,yup...i do agree with you..it based on interest and of course our subconscious mind will always associates it with something that we are familiar with....
Actually, as a Malaysian, I would like to know how many people know of Malaysia and what their impression of this country. is. A min. of 30 responses is required to make a statistical inference but looking at it, it's hard to even get 5, LOL.
I guess I just realize that you are Malaysian yourself.LOL
Why would I bother to ask about Burundi? LOL
