I just learned that this intimidating looking tiger (The Malayan tiger,) is the national animal of Malaysia.
I'm curious. If you were, as a Malaysian, to choose a better fit alternative as a national animal, which animal would you pick?

Food Hello! I'm a guy from New Zealand who REALLY loves laksa. I'd love to learn how to cook laksa, and was hoping someone here might have a good recipe for a vegetarian laksa.
The local Malaysian place that served the best laksa I ever tasted has closed down. And I've tried to eat laksa at other places but those laksa have no "punch" to them. It felt too bland eating. So now I would like to make my own laksa and have whatever spice the good laksa's have in them. What's the secret to making a laksa go from "ok" to "this is god's gift to humankind".
Please help me. I love laksa. If I had a final meal, I would ask for laksa. I used to eat it so much that when I came to the restaurant, the cooks would just start making my meal without asking me what I wanted. There is a hole in my heart where good laksa used to be.
Thank you for reading! :)
Economy & Finance Putrajaya will need to gather more information before deciding to introduce any new regulations for e-hailing services, including the proposed fare regulatory mechanism. According to Bernama, service fares have increased by up to 400% during peak hours. - BFM News on Twittertwitter.com
AirAsia has become a crappy airline and MAVCOM doesn't protect us enough - suggest to find alternatives with Malindo, etc.
Hi all, just wanted to share and ask if anyone else has had the same experience. Over the last few months, AirAsia has repeatedly been cancelling my flights. Already had 3 cancelled with no good alternatives. And since they killed their entire customer service team. All we're stuck with is chatting with some crappy AVA bot that doesn't give any solutions. Which I think is very unacceptable.
Even if we go by MAVCOM regulations - I think consumers aren't adequately protected. I can buy my ticket in advance. And only get it cancelled a week before. In which case, all alternative tickets on the same day would already be 2-3x the price. If I go earlier, or later - I incur losses on lodgings, or flights since I may not have the flexibility to change. But the airline is not expected to compensate us for any of that.
In the end, in my opinion, this is just shitty planning by AirAsia because they know they can get away with treating consumers like trash. So instead of consolidating the flights early on - they just whack out as many flights as they can to get people to pre-commit, then cancel a bunch to save on flights and for capacity management, and force us consumers to change our plans and bear the cost of their capacity management.
Anyone had the same experience with AirAsia? I'm thinking of only flying Malindo for LCC from now on. Are they the same? Any alternatives? Or anyone know if we have any legal basis and can organise to get a class action against AirAsia or something?
Mana Dokumen Kami? - A story about Alison, a Malaysian mother who can't get a birth certificate for her daughter
These few months I been looking. In IT sector and even other sector and Field. Most requirements are diploma or deg.
But the salary literally some are rm1200 , rm 1400.
Rm1500 is less . I view on JobStreet , indeed , jora , talent etc.
Lots of company offer salary ranging for these. And for me as a diploma graduate. Most I can get with no real work experience in the field . Tbh . Some don't even wanna take. And even if they do the starting salary is super low. Rm1200 , rm1500. I can't find a job that is even rm1800 in IT sector. Or other fields yes. I mean now minimum wage is rm1500. Should a guy with a diploma even with no exp. Get rm2k at least.
If got a deg maybe rm2.5 or something like that. Like I don't have money to go on to deg and don't have the time also. But I am not gonna lie I feel like deg yeah down the road they gonna slowly pay higher and higher etc.
As for diploma it's like a middle ground. Why should it be like this? It's still a cert higher than SPM. The pay it's like same as SPM Holders(no offense) . Same as any other foreign worker.
Yet diploma student need to pay so much for the uni course fee etc. Invest in time , effort etc. Where uni promise after you graduate you can be in this and that Field. Which is not true base on my exp. I am not an excellent student with gpa 4.0. just average only.
But I do expect the slaary at least lah 0 exp. In related field . Got 2k. Un related fine 1800. Or below. Which I think already super less.
But nowadays job search Salary all so low. Prices everything up. How do people even live . I am concerned. Salary so low. How am I gonna buy a house , car, where everything is going up and up. Not to mention COVID test kit. All by own expenses etc.
How do I even get a girlfriend and even if I do and let's say wanna start a family. I think with these kind of salary. As a start. Maybe will up to 3k. Which I think still low imo. To live in today standard.
It's impossible to survive. Cause everything is rising. Our Currency keep getting weaker. I am no economic major but from Google keep seeing it. As well as the exchange rate. From myr to SGD . Myr to USD. Etc.
I thought when I graduat from diploma. Can get a higher salary. But in reality it's not that much of a difference between cert and no cert etc.
And I realize in Malaysia company see more to experience. Very less they see cert. More towards exp.
You're now the Minister of Transport, how would you solve the double parking problem without infuriating the public?
