"Holy cow! I didn't believe it when they told me 'Malaysia Boleh!'"
In Bolehland, believe it or not, it seems that there are words that non-Muslims are proscribed by law from using, such as name of place of Muslim house of worship like 'mas***' and 'su***'
This is likely to cause a lot of problem to a lot of people.
Newly arrived tourist to taximan: 'Please take me to Mas*** Jamek'
Taximan: 'Where did you say you want to go to, Sir?'
Tourist: 'Mas*** Jamek, please'
Taximan: 'Well, Sir, in that case, I have to first send you to the local police station'
Tourist: 'But why? I am going to Mas*** Jamek! Not to the local police station!'
Taximan: 'Sir, you misunderstand. According to the law here, it is an offence for a non-Muslim to use the word 'mas***' Sorry, Sir, but I have no choice but to deliver you to the local police. You are welcome to Bolehland!'
Tourist: 'Holy cow! I didn't believe it when they told me "Malaysia Boleh!" Now I regret for being so disbelieving and such a smart dumb ass!'
Selamat datang ke Malaysia! (Welcome to Malaysia!)
Land of endless possibilities.
Where you can expect the unexpected.
And where the unexpected is par for the course.
Or so it appears.
