Geyland Serai – just like home! March 30, 2008

Malaysians have this habit of going overseas and subsconsciously look for anything that resembles home. Take for example, me. I was in Singapore and a friend exclaimed: “Let’s go and eat something that’s not to typical of Singapore.

Off we went and ended up in Geyland Serai. First thing I noticed was the small number of Chinese faces. I was quickly told that this is more of an Indian-Malay neighbourhood. The foods are exactly the kind we have north of the border. Even the roti canai and thosai looked the same.

“Just like Malaysia!” I almost shouted. “See what did I tell you? I know you would like it,” my friend quickly said, as if reading my thoughts.

Yes, we Malaysians are like that. No matter how far we wander around the globe, we end up looking for people and things from home. So typical. I will tell you on another day how we bumped into Malaysians in disguised as English in good old London.
