    I am a Malaysian.  There is actually no such thing as Malaysian culture.  Malaysian is an adjective describing things from the country called Malaysia.  There is no race called Malaysian.  "Malaysian" is a nationality, meaning, citizens of Malaysia.  I am a Chinese by race, and I am a Malaysian.  In Malaysia you will find the three main distinct cultures of the Chinese, Indians, and Malays.  There are also the indigenous groups especially in East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak.

    It is therefore very difficult to generalize a so-called Malaysian culture.  Maybe due to the cosmopolitan mix, the different cultures in Malaysia are somewhat diluted when compared with that of their original homelands.

    As a matter of fact, I have been to Malaysia on one ocassion. It was in June of 1999. I was only there for one night, but it was quite a memorable one. The thing I remember the most about Malaysia was the exquisite dining experience I had while there. My colleagues and I had dinner at an establishment called "The Oily Lobster." I don't speak Chinese, but that's what my interpreter Sum Ting Wong said.

    Our entourage arrived at The Oily Lobster at 7pm. Our waiter, Short Dong Kong, recommended that we start off with a popular dish named Belacan as an appetizer. For those that do not know, Belacan is a variety of shrimp paste. These small shrimp are mashed and buried for several months. Then the fermented shrimp are dug up, fried, and then hard pressed into cakes and served with a side order of duck lips. It smelled like a combination of pig vomit and a dead pufferfish that just washed ashore.

    For our main entree, I chose stewed door mice, smothered with onions and monkey toes. Sum Ting Wong ordered the Duck Tongue and Chicken Feet platter. Both of these were about as delicious as ice cold spam served on a wooden plank.

    After dinner, we purged our systems and finished off the wonderful night with a slice of fecal grub pie. Yummy!

    Yes, I live here. Specifically in Sarawak. Which aspect of Malaysian culture are we referring to: the common traits shared by Malaysians? Or the things you find regularly in Malaysia?

    As GoodGuy pointed out, there is no "Malaysian culture" per se. The closest thing we have would be a stereotypical or generalised perception mooted out by Tourism Malaysia. Even then, there are distinct characteristics among the many races and ethnicities.
