There Is Something About Malays

There is always something about being a Malay that baffles me.

Back when I was at school, different people from various nationalities will always have a Malay to end a quarrel. Well, most of the time the quarrel was trivial between Arabs and at the end of the day a Malaysian would always be a respected mediator.

A Pakistani grocer once told me that I can credit goods from his shop, anytime but he will never give credit to his own people.

During prayers, the majority middle east makmum will always welcome a Malay imam because we read the Quran better than them.

What is it in us that makes us Malays so lovable?
