The street look like taiwan with a lot of Chinese signage… now we can only see this in Taiwan or Japan. ..
Even in Sibu, Sarawak here, presently, all new road signage do not have any Mandarin wordings, this is what it is so called SATU MALAYSIA …
Malaysia is so stupid… being a country that is cater for multiple races and cultural that should be there strength….. by having the signage in English mandarin , Malay and tamil does not weaken the country but make us stronger. …. narrow mentality and idealistic mentality of our pass leadership have put our country 30 year behind ….
Malaysia is not stupid. The Government managed by stupid people making stupid statements and doing stupid things is. It is because there are still many other good and smart common Malaysians, Malaysia can still struggle to stand firm to be respected!
KL today: Bangla town. Period.

The caption for coffee plantation is incorrect, because the photo shows rubber plantation.
Thanks Norizah, we’ve edited the article
nice pictures but that was a white rhino not a sumatran
What makes you say that Chua? White rhinos are from Africa normally…
It’s a white rhino in a zoo. A Sumatran rhino does not look like that.
