A friend of ours, and a former staff of my wife from China came over to Malaysia for a few days. This chinese lady got so excited about Malaysia that many things were new for her. She stayed with another friend of ours and dropped by on Sunday. We took her to Putrajaya.
She commented that Malaysia is so beautiful that she got jealous. She loves the greenery scene, with lots of plants and trees. We stopped by the food court near the mosque. She excitedly asking me to take her picture there and then when we passed by a bunch of school pupils having their lunch. I snapped. She explained.
"These children with white cloth on their head were so beautiful! I wanna show my friends in China!"
Hm.. I came to realize that China is very much a mono-racial country, especially the province where she's from.
We took a cruise ride, around the lake. The lobby to the jetty caught my attention. My finger got itchy, so I snapped.
Regardless of where there're from, women just can't resist shopping.
Oh ya, she even got so excited with a bunch of malay and indian crew. She sit right in the middle, surrounded by 6 or 7 crews, all dark skinned, and I took the photo. Apparently she'd never seen so many 'dark-skinned' people all at one time and wanted to snap a photo.
"They're all black and I'm the only white one, I'm so happy". The excited grin was clearly shown on her face.
Come to think of it, we Malaysian had never been so excited about our multi-racial society. But I'm glad I have friends of all races, they are my pride.
