Malaysia Sucks

People in Malaysia often ask me "Do you like Malaysia/Penang?" They looked surprised when I say "No". They are obviously expecting a different answer.

Penang is beautiful but it is also ugly. It has a lot of tropical vegetation and some mountains but it is also over populated and polluted. This is the first third world country I have lived in so maybe what I've experienced here is common in most third world countries simply because people are poor and they must lie, cheat and steal to make a living.

Piracy is out of control. The government puts on a show as if they are doing something about it but I see nothing happening. I've been here 2 years and there has been no change and the amount of pirated movie, music and software you can buy and yet I hear about efforts to stop piracy all the time.

The Prangin Mall and the Bukit Jambul Mall both have movie theaters. They also both have a dozen shops that sell pirated movies and the movies you can buy are the same movies that are showing so when Spiderman 3 came out, you had the choice of paying RM 10 and seeing it in the theater or paying RM 3 right for a pirated DVD which you could buy right next to the theater.

I don't understand how a dozen shops can remain open. Simply do not allow them to open. The source of the problem is the owners of the malls allowing such shops to exist. Arrest the owners, shut down the shops and keep them closed. How hard is that? I don't understand what the problem is.

Everywhere around Penang you see open markets selling pirated movies, music and software. It's not like they're underground. They are easy to find and easy to shut down.

Companies pirated logos. I saw two cafes at the mall recently that had logos that reminded me of Starbucks. In fact I thought they were Starbucks until I took a second look. Pensonic sounds and looks way too close to Panasonic. Again, I have to look twice in order to know the difference. Twiggies look just like Twinkies. Cream-O's look just like Oreos. The list goes on and on and these pirated products are not as good as the original.

It is obvious to me that the Malaysian government and police dept. are corrupt.

90% of the taxi drivers refuse to use the meters even though it's the law. They increase the price 1.5 to 2 times what it would cost with the meter. Some taxis do use the meter but it's very rare to find one of those.

Malaysia is very dangerous. People don't buckle their seat belts, back seats often don't have seat belts, people don't wear helmets when riding motorbikes and if they do, they often don't strap them on which is the same as not wearing one. I saw a motorbike accident where the woman's helmet went flying off her head. I see small children on motorbikes without helmets constantly. I see tiny babies on motorbikes. I see children standing on the front seat of cars without a seat belt. I've never seen a child seat.

Open pits on the side of the road with no curb. As I ride my bicycle just a foot or two away from a 3 or 4 foot drop into a sewage drain, I worry that a motorbike may knock into me forcing me into the drainage ditch. These sewage drains really smell bad in places.

The buses are death traps. The metal chairs will snap you in half if the bus ever has a front-end collision. The chairs and ceiling straps are falling apart. Luckily they are getting new buses next month so hopefully things will be a lot better. Yesterday the bus stopped at the gas station to fill up on some diesel but they left the engine running. I was sitting right next to the gas pump where it clearly said "Stop Engine" before pumping. The guy might as well have been smoking a cigarette while talking on his mobile phone.

People resist change. A gang visited the lot of new buses and smashed their windows. It's probably some kind of taxi-mafia fearing loss of jobs or maybe this new bus company is replacing the old one. I don't know but people resist progress when it causes job losses. They don't see it as an opportunity to re-train and find a better job. It reminds me of the Luddites who smashed factory equipment when automation was replacing the factory workers. In order to transition into a first world country, Malaysia will need to pass through many stages of change. People will resist and perhaps slow progress, but progress will happen. You can slow it but you cannot stop it.

Building standards are really low. I was at the mall and I heard some thumping behind the wall which sounded like the something was about explode. This was an old mall and I figured it was just steam passing thru pipes but then I visited the new mall and I kept seeing massive cracks in support structures. Scary stuff. It's new and falling apart already.

They must not measure things carefully because levels are always changing. It's like they'll build two sections at the same time but they meet, they discover they don't match up so there's a step up or down. At a different mall you have to step up or down before getting on the escalator because it doesn't match up. Somebody goofed. I'm constantly seeing these goofs where they have to make minor corrections with a step up or down. It doesn't give me much confidence in their ability to build safe structures.

People pollute. You can rarely find a garbage can when you need one. People toss their garbage on the street. I see it often. They have no pride. They are used to others cleaning up after them. When you are finished eating at McDonald's, you don't dispose of your own garbage. You let someone else do it for you. This is the mind set here.

I see buses and trucks spewing thick black smoke, choking me while I ride my bike. The police need to seriously pull them over and ticket them so they get maintenance. People drive with their windows shut and air-vents on circulate because they don't want to breath the smoke from the trucks and buses in front of them.

The three main populations, Malays, Chinese and Indians, are very segregated. The Malays and Muslims get financial assistance to build their temples while no one else gets such treatment. My wife's church is in the pastor's own apartment. The government will not help build a Christian church yet they will help build Muslim temples all over.

The Muslim temples like to blast their prayers over loud-speakers 3 or 4 times per day. The non-Muslims resent this. It's noise pollution to the non-Muslim. 5:30 am we are awakened by the morning prayer. No other religion is allowed to do the same. If the Christian church blasted their prayers over loud speaker, they would be fined for disturbing the peace. The citizens of Malaysia are not treated as equals. Muslims get more benefits and everyone else a second hand citizen.

There is no separation of church and state. This is quite scary since the laws of Malaysia are dictated by the Quran. Movies are censored, even at the theater. Many movies are not allowed to be shown in Malaysia for example "The 40 year old Virgin". It's sexual content is too high for Malaysia. No porn is allowed in Malaysia also though I have been offered porn under the table when nobody is around. Prostitution is not allowed but I hear it exists. Drugs are not allowed but they exist as well.

This is one crazy messed up country.

The good news is that things are getting better. I have seen a lot of progress in Penang in the two years I've been here. They are getting new buses. They will have a monorail eventually. They check my bag when I enter a theater to make sure I won't record the movie. I frequently see PSAs about how bad piracy is. They are trying hard to make Penang a better place but right now it is far from the Pearl of the Orient. I'm sure at one time it deserved that title but no more.

Once all taxis are using a meter and it becomes really hard to find pirated movies, music and software, that will be the day Malaysia becomes a first world country.

Hi,

I've just finished reading your post "Malaysia Sucks", and I find that your opinions are a bit - biased. On most parts I agree with you - especially on the corrupted government part, BUT, that doesn't make this country a "crazy messed up country.". I'm a chinese malaysian, currently pursuing my degree in Australia - and has lived in Canada for two years. For most parts, Malaysia isn't up to the standards of these western countries, but there's a bad and good side to everything, and I'm truly sorry you got to see the worst side of Malaysia.

First of all, living in Malaysia feels safer than living in the US or Canada. Over the two years in Canada, I've heard gunshots - gang fights really close to my apartment, and mind you, I wasn't even in the red district area. These apartments has a lot of children - and there's even a high school nearby.

Regarding vandalism, I've seen a lot of bus stops here, in australia, vandalised, most of the time with a rock through the glasses. Racial slurs are common here. Ignorant aussies love to drive their cars past asians and shout racial slurs. Over the three years here, I've encountered that at least 7 times.

Also, I assume you've been to chinatown in US, Canada or Australia right? Piracy in chinatown is similar to piracy in Malaysia, although the government here has stricter rules against piracy.

People in malaysia don't really resist change. You can't just make up that fact based on that one situation. eg, just because some ignorant aussie drove by me and shouted some slur at me, that doesn't mean all aussies are ignorant pricks.

Malaysia's actually not doing too bad being a muslim countries. Yes I do agree that some laws are kind of "extreme" but you can actually walk on the streets without having the fear of being bombed by terrorists.

I don't know what kind of mall you went to. Might be a really old one, but if you go to cities like kuala lumpur, or even my hometown Miri, Sarawak, the malls here are actually pretty well maintained. Not as big as those malls in canada or australia, but the standard is up to theirs.

Once again, I'm sorry you got to see the bad side of malaysia. I'm proud to be a Malaysian, and since I've gotten to see Canada (toronto, specifically, for two years), and Australia (three years now), I can say that Malaysia isn't too bad compared to them (even though it's not up to their standard yet, but it still isn't as bad as you described). Not only living in foreign countries made me appreciate Malaysia more, it totally changed my view on Malaysia in just five years.

Regards,
Jonathan

Erm... the comment really address out the complexity of the problem. It true that Asian have lot of stores selling pirated DVD and these kind of activities is covered up by underworld(just you cant see the dark side, it doesnt mean it do not exist). And for underworld thing, I can say every country unavoidable have these kind of illegal group even in every western countries just that in western countries they dont sell(but some selling) pirated DVD but drugs or arms.

Jonathan must be on crack if he thinks Malaysia is safer than US or Canada. Another FOB (Fresh of the Boat) making silly comments about Australia, US or Canada. I have come across a lot of locals retards here who think they are all that just because they have gone to other countries to pursue their studies and make it seem they know so much about the culture or lifestyle. Give me a freakin break will ya.

In Malaysia, you can even go out for a stroll or ride your bicycle around and not get robbed. Crime rate is at it's worst, almost as bad as Harlem or South Central imho. Homicides, rapes, robbery, kidnapping, car jacking, snatch thieves are in the news everyday. Cops here are like mall security guards, incompetent bunch of dumbasses. I can't blame them coz they make peanuts. Less than $300 USD a month I heard, thats almost on the poverty line. Nuff said about this retarded country. Can't wait to move back to the states when my assignments over.

Malaysia has the highest concentration of dumb asses on the planet. Tons of third world numb skulls on crack riding moped without safety gears. Cars and bikes constantly running into trees,medians, road blocks, back of semi's, flying into ditches. Head on collisions with cars, trucks & busses are a very common thing over here. Majority of driving licenses issued are bought and taking a driving test does not mean anything (everything is staged). People here are retarded, reckless, greedy, selfish and corrupted.

When i was young, i told people I'm a Chinese Malaysian. When i'm getting older, i just tell people, I'm a Malaysian.

After studying in Australia & currently studying in Thailand. I got to tell you...Malaysia Government can do a better job but they cant.

Until there is a change in the general population to stop stomping their self esteem to so low and have pride in themselves, the country can never be improved.

In the past, I kept thinking Malaysia will be ok, but now its currently going backwards and slowly becoming a draconic state abusing Islamic laws and power on its people(e.g. other ethinc too) to keep its status quo. Its not like what it was when it gained independence 50+ years ago.

Everything is politicized.

My regret: During China Olympic, i saw my Malaysian team was walking in the screen, i saw Chinese,Indian, Malays are wearing Malay Songkok and attire. This saddens me alot. In the past, my image of Malaysia was Indian attire, Malay attire and Chinese Cheongsam, this is what i learned when i was a kid.

Now when i'm in Thailand I kept promoting Malaysia as a multicultural secular country, now even my lecturer says its becoming an islamic country. This sucks.

We young Malaysians will change it :)

I totally agreed with you. Malaysia is indeed a fucked up country. Police & government are corrupted and useless.

All good stuff goes to Lazy bastards Malays and not for Chinese and Indians. Connections is more important, i.e. friends of YB, Datuk, etc etc are better than highly educated people.

I've been living overseas since 12 years ago and have no intention to go back to this "sad" country.

the Malays lack empathy. the problem is not with Islam, it is with the older generation of Malays. Those that are not really Malays but mix blood and call themselves Malay because they have this "hak istimewa", more like hak for LOSERS thay has zero ability, tamak, miang and bahlul, are the most stuck up, useless, uncivilized bastards who kneels and begs for opportunity to go to USA and worships those that had been there but hate US people, f*cking hypocrites that has no shame. They have inferiority complex and cannot live without parasiting on others that give the real effort. Just "bangsa malas tak tahu malu dan pentingkan diri sendiri. Berhati keji dan kejam." Islam also cannot save them coz they choose to corrupt it. Imaging Christianity is their religion, this will be a fucked up stupid Christian country (just an example - honestly i prefer christians over muslims in Malaysia, they actually HELP others without regarding your race, but that's only because malays are muslims, doubt it will be the same if malays are christians. no fund for mosque and temple. Hak istimewa, actually just a bunch of bullies and sissies with small tiny heart. They need people to continue tolerating them and taking care of them. Too bad their own wealthy people steps on their own and steals from their own as well by saying they will feed the (their) poor, give them special rights; actually keeping them dependant and stay poor and hopeful so the rich can continue their lavish show off sinful (tak berhijab tapi paksa orang lain pakai tudung). not real muslim lar! corrupted and stupid!

But this, malay, oh god, call themselves the owner, step on us who gives, and take from us. recently a malay guy approach me and says malay and chinese should unite. and i asked, how about indians and the aborigins? he said,"no, they are too dark and too wild.

Well, America sucks too.. xd Patrick James Coston, you're being smartass saying bad things about my country. For me, Malaysia is a safe place for people to live, its only the problem of poor, corrupt, drugs, and prostitution. We don't allowed firearms or any kind of harm things. That's why America always got problem in murder case. Also, Malaysia is the first country that having more than 1 religion. All religion is having a peace.

This is Malaysian country, not Chinese or Indians. The Chinese and Indians must respect the loud speaker. This is MUSLIM country. I would be imagine how the muslims people in America living without mosque or the " loud speaker " thing. I bet in America, they even more racist than Malaysia.

I think you must be going on a wrong place. Penang is a not good place to stayed. That's why our government is improving, but still the progress is doesn't show well. So, think twice before you're making comment about other countries.

I hope you're not ignorant fuck. I believe that you're having fun in Malaysia. You just want to complaint about it, if you don't satisfied, don't come. Like my man said: Don't like, Don't play. Which means: Don't like, Don't come!

I agree Malaysia's Malay government bullies other races and religion. Non Muslims pay more taxes and subsidizes Muslims. Take for instance the minority non Muslims pay full price for buying properties while rich Malays can buy any properties with 5 to 10% discount. The Muslims are also very arrogant. They can criticize non Muslims but as soon as non Muslims says anything about Muslims they are branded as seditious and sent to prison. All press are Government mouth piece and their political view vehicles. I hate Malaysia as a non Muslim Malaysian. But eveything don't last forever and i can't wait to see Malaysia changing into a better less racist country. Hopefully i live long enough to see that.

Sorry to say, but you sound like a grumpy fat white American dude who thinks everything has to be his way or highway. Granted I have never been to Penang but I have been to Kuala Lumpur as a solo female traveler. I was lost in red light district at night, I have also been out at 4 am, and was perfectly fine. I can't even imagine doing such thing without any dire consequences in US cities like Detroit, Chicago, Washington DC, NYC, etc. or even other cities like Paris, London, Barcelona etc. I’m assuming you’re from/raised in a small rural town where you still had the Mayberry effect. But us city folks have it different.

Every country has its own rules, rituals or customs. You’re in a Muslim majority country so you have to deal with lots of Islamic customs. If you don’t like it maybe you should really consider moving out. It’s always wise idea to understand the customs and what to expect before you land. Speaking of that, I saw church bells going on in the early morning in Christian majority area or late at night for holidays (enough to wake me up from sleep), but I didn’t find it something to complain about since I understood their custom.

@Anonymous I’m not sure what you’re talking about churches not being permitted to be built, but I saw plenty of temples of other faiths when I visited Malaysia, and they were free to worship whomever they wanted. Speaking of not permitting, many places don’t permit building mosques, yet churches are permitted. Even in the US you will see such obstacles when it comes building a mosque. So your POV seems to be very biased and maybe even bigoted.

As for scamming, crimes and everything else in between, you will see it everywhere in the world, more or less. Yes, Malaysia needs lots of improvement, so does many other countries, including USA (try landing in NY and letting others know you’re a FOB, see how much you get scammed). As for pirated, replica or factory second goods, i don't know which universe you’ve been living in until you landed in Malaysia, but it is EVERYWHERE, even in Milan, Italy or the US, even with stricter rules (you just need to look at the right places).

@Vince Theft and violent robbery are rampant here in the USA too. I saw folks being robbed, beaten, and shot (granted I wasn’t around for the shooting, but this cabbie I know was shot to death) here in the US. Compare to that Malaysia still has a lot less crime. I’m not saying Malaysia doesn’t have its issues, but it’s not as bad as you’re portraying. I wonder if Malaysian schools have metal detectors and go on lock down mode every other week.

BTW I’m from Northern Virginia, one of the county with highest household income in the US. Yet even in my own driveway things got stolen from my car (when I complained, the authorities were unable to help, and told me to suck it up). So I really don’t think it is fair complaining only about Malaysia as if such thing never happens anywhere else.

For the rest of the folks who are complaining about lack of minority rights in Malaysia.. Unfortunately, majority rules. I agree, It sucks for the minorities but that’s the way it goes in the world. At least compare to many other countries Malaysians of different origins can enjoy some extend of equal rights. If you think Malaysia is bad, try living in certain parts of Europe.

About me: I’m an aspiring world traveler. 99% of the time travel solo. I cope with culture shock by learning as much as I can about the countries I am visiting and also by getting close with the locals with an open mind.

One more thing i want to add... To the folks who are trying to instigate anti muslim propaganda on Malay privileged laws, this law is applicable based on ethnicities not religion. Granted Malay populations are muslim majority but dont forget there are other folks as well.

Malaysian practice of the law seems to be based on ethnic hierarchy (correct me if im wrong). I saw Malaysian Indian Muslims complaining about biases practiced by the authorities. I saw Filipina Muslim complained about the mistreatment of her Malaysian Chinese boss and get away with it because she is not Malaysian and the boss is Malaysian. So it really boils down to ethnicities.

Speaking of blatant discrimination and mistreatment, i was treated super harshly and scammed by the authorities in Hong Kong and Macao.

In Hong Kong the cops, im migrations folks, ticket booth people refused to speak to me when i asked any question. I felt like they would chew me out for even existing in this world. The HK express sold me 2 tickets that are valid only for 24 hours, without telling me for their purpose. Thus taking my money. In the middle of inter section the cop told me to talk straight, when i asked which way, she rolled her eyes and looked away. The immigration officer was there like a robot and never said a word even when i asked a question. All of them had this vengeful expression with pursed lips. Yet i saw the same folks treating people of Cantonese and white background with professionalism.

As for Macao. I was pulled over randomly while walking on the street eating egg tart. The cops had to check my American passport solid 6-7 minutes as if they couldn't believe Americans can be anything other than white. I bought the first class ticket for the ferry, which comes with a meal (dont buy it). The customer rep was also extremely rude and refused to even answer when i asked if there's any other meal or drink option. There were only 4-5 passengers, so i know he wasn't busy.

So the point of my long rant, yes discrimination sucks, and it is available everywhere in this world. But compare to other countries Malaysia seems to be doing much better.

Recently,in Sunway Mentari,a church has been given permission to be build.As usual,the Muslims come and protest a strike against this construction,saying that Christians are trying to change Muslims into Christians.BULLSHIT.That is so stupid and idiotic to listen too.Apart from that,there are Muslims temples with a big microphone outside,tearing up the quiet,peace area.If any other religion does that,they will be fined.I can't visit my grandfather at peace for once,everytime a man shouts in a surau outside his house.This was very irritating,and I immediately shouted SHUT UP IDIOT,at him.Many neighbours saw this,but I don't care at all.Another thing,if we eat pork in front of Muslims,it's called as being rude.But they can eat beef in front of anyone,and nothing is wrong about that. These cows are respected as gods for Hindus.And now in 2014 and the coming year,GST has been started and it's taking up all the money my family earns.We are not rich like those ministers who don't even pay a single money to anything they are using and eating.Don't they even have pity against their community.I really hate how Chinese,Hindus,and Christians are being treated.

Hmm.. Malaysian government is corrupt. Most races is not united only on mouth not in heart. Kinda hurt though when the immigrant keep coming legally/illegally. Back then we suffer from china & indian now we got myanmar, indon, viet, cambo, bangla, nigga, suluk ic project etc its such mess up. Hate when people not recognize Malay as originator and keep saying Malay lazy even they know we not. We slowly become like red indian in america or murica. Fuck. Honestly I don't care if other races lived in Malaysia if they have good manner and respect the host race but fuck almost of them are shameless and act they are the owner. I hope they all die. Most of you westerner not good at all either.

Regardless of whether you are malays, indians or chinese, what they DO have in common is, all of them are fooking thoughtless, shameless and selfish. They are after all MALAYSIANS indeed!!!!!!!! ;p;p;p;p

The problem is their education system FAILS to teach them of COURTESY, MORALITY and CIVIC (the responsibilities as a citizen)!!!!!!!!!!! ;p;p;p;p

The change must starts from infancy, especially among the malays, who constitute the majority. Otherwise, the bad will get worse and to worst; it's a vicious cycle so the change must start from somewhere to perpetuate a total 180 degree change!!!!!!!!!!! ;p;p;p;p
