HOW MALAYSIAN ARE YOU?

Here's another something I received in my email today. Now, being the playful guy I am, I'm not going to answer it (in green below) truthfully - except for one or two - and I'll leave to anyone to guess which. The real answer, or the supposedly real, is below mine.

NO CHEATING!

1. How much is satu kupang? Had it nor been for Cikgu and Doc TA, I would have thought kupang is some seafood!
2. Where's the favourite spot to take wedding pictures in Taiping? Hello! I've only been there once in my entire life; how the hell am I supposed to know? But a wild guess: Tapiing Zoo?
3. In what dialect is Apo Nak Di Kato? Blues Gang dialect!
4. Name at least five variations of roti canai. kosong, tolur, bawang, pisang, gardenia.
5. What is the staple food of native Sarawakians. Sekoi (ni ada yang Doktor Sarawak bunuh den nanti ha!)
6. Name a popular Malay ointment made from "cucumber" Honestly, don't know. Gamat?
7. Name the sauce made from fish or shrimp that the Kelantanese love. That's easy for a Javanese to answer: budu.
8. What does pi mai pi mai tang tu mean? Walking on the spot!
9. Which fruit is Ipoh famous for? Ipoh Mali. Nah, its my favourite: Limau Bali.
10. What is the English name for putu mayam? Mayam Putu?
11. "Lah" is to Peninsular Malaysians as"..." is to Sabahans. Bah! How should I know bah!
12. What does ABC stand for? Ais Batu Kacang. Or is it mere alphabets?
13. How long is a sari? Like I've worn one before.
15. Name Penang's famous beach. Ferringhi.
16. How do you order coffee mixed with tea at a kopi-tiam?. Don't know, never drank it before.
17. What's on Malaysian TV at 8pm? Propaganda.
18. On one side of our RM1 coin is the bunga raya, what's on the other?. Ain't seen one for a very long time!
19. Now what's on our 10 sen coin? Ain't seen one for a very long time, too!
20. What was the name of the KL Commonwealth Games 1998 mascot? Kerpov?
21. When you fill in a form, if you're not Malay, Chinese or Indian, you
are...? ameno.
22. Who is Malaysia's favourite Kampung Boy? Lat.
23. How did the word "gostan" come about? Kurdistan.
24. Lobo's Whispers in the Wind is the English version of which famous
Malay song? Getaran Jiwa.
25. When did Malaysia last win the Thomas Cup? When Sir Thomas was alive - just to show how long it has been.
26. What is the name of our national flag? Jalur Gemilang - English translation: Stripes of Glory, for which the US flag was named. Patriotic bunch of people, are we?
27. If you want 4D numbers, who do you consult? ZAM, the former Minister of Information.
28. What's the name of the Malaysian-made 175cc motorbike? Don't know.
29. Name our national bird. We have one?
30. If the father is a baba, and the mother is a nyonya, then what is
the son? Ali Baba - that's what ameno taught me.

I failed!

In the end, I only have this to say: I believe, those people who unsheathe kris, shouts patriotic slogans, and waive huge national flags, would be amongst the first to run or hide should the country be invaded by some foreign army. I may be wrong, but that - as I mentioned - is what I believe.

NO CHEATING!

Malu-lah you! We suggest you spend at least one hour a day at your
nearest coffee-shop.

Boleh pass. Okay, you may claim to be the average Malaysian with a score
in this range but you could watch less CNN and more RTM.

21-30
Wah, you one true blue Malaysian-lah. Top quality belacan. We are truly
impressed, especially if you know the answer to No. 24 which we admit is
very tricky!
