Haha, I guess Estonian is even worse than Finnish :P
But it would be so cool to speak Malay :)
Lately I read a book about a woman who went to Malaysia and this book was full of phrases in Malay ! :D

Sure. Learning languages having different scripts like Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Hindi etc is always more difficult.

And kennyofbaja, I saw your profile that you mentioned Chinese in language speaking. Do you really know Chinese? :)

Hmm, actually I read typical traveling journal or something like that, too. It was about historical cities, beaches and nature. That was stunning! ;)

Haha, yes, I know that movie! :D
We were all amazed. It's like Americans think we live in caves here, or something :D I'm pretty sure that they didn't know what Estonia is when they used that word! :P But it was funny anyway.
Estonia is a little bit famous in the world too :P I mean, we won the Sydney Olympic Games (in year 2000), for example :D
And also Eurovision Song Contest, if you have heard about it ;)
Oh, and ofcourse it's not all..... :P

Unforunately many times I asked a foreign If he/she knows where hungary is they've told 'I don't know' or 'maybe in Africa?' and I've got questions like 'what language is spoken there? english? or what?' .... :mad: :D

Yes, but I hope it didn't give you the idea that "the interesting way to explore Malaysia is to be in Malaysian prison"! :P

I know about Eurovision :) though I am not sure if I've ever listened any Estonian. Does your language sound like Lithuanian? (Just because I've heard one of Lithuanian and I know Lithuania is your neighbor :))

Yeah! Well at least I loved that movie (Okay, Brendan Fraser was cute, no?;)) Have you heard about this crappy movie called Zoolander? It mentioned Malaysia in it, I tried watching just because of that, but couldn't complete it as it's far too boring. Assassination of the Prime Minister of Malaysia? :D And that PM looked like the President of China :P

Recently I watched anime Yakitate Japan! and it's mention Malayan tapir :P
The Entrapment also shot their movie in Malaysia. You can see the Twin Towers clearly in it. A Korean drama mentioned Langkawi. Michelle Yeoh is from Malaysia ;)

Once we had an Estonian reality-show on TV which was filmed in Malaysia. There were 5 loving couples who had to compete with others. I liked that :D

No, they didn't travel around the world, they stayed in Malaysia.
It was just like a "fight" between couples - who will win? They did all kind of crazy stuff. :P

The reality tv had come to worst every new series or season.

Yeah, I remember the first season of Survivor was shot at Pulau Tiga.

glo is here, yay :D I told you to study the route map first before coming next time. Nobody ever comes to Malaysia only to miss seeing the Twin Towers! :mad: I'd be happy to be your guide but I can't promise if I'll be in KL all the time. Maybe you can consult with asianpunk :) he's in KL and way more accessible than I am (I guess?:P)
