        Sep 5 2013: Omg this is so coo!! I can't speak any Malay though. Maybe I should learn before I go travel there. But I think a huge population in Malaysia is Chinese, so I guess Chinese would work just fine :p

        Sep 9 2013: Hi Muhammad. In my opinion, there are no "aliens" on this planet. We are all humans, with different perspectives or outlooks towards life. We were taught these perspectives as young children. As we grow older, we learn to identify those elements of being human that we have in common. It is those elements that draw us together into one community. Culture (part of your young upbringing) is strong is those who were taught it is the very foundation of everything they believe. It is weaker in those with a free spirit and open mind, whose mental scope allows them to see the world as one culture, divided into many Geo-cultural segments.

        It's a puzzle that we must put together and find the human cultural, so we can no longer be divided by our imprinted minds. We need a one world government, governed by on human culture -just my opinion.
