Discover what makes Malaysian so similar to each other yet easily distinguishable by subtle nuances. A single word, an awkward gesture, the one look that tells the native you are a foreigner even if you speak the same language, wear the same clothing or have lived in the same country your whole life. Experience Malaysia through the eyes of a Local Outsider.
