Europe vs Malaysia!

had a fabulous family vacation to Europe in April 2012!
we went to Germany at first, then we visited Czech Republic and Holland.
that was me and my bro's very first time landed on the Europe land, and I must say, 

different places have different cultures, and yes i've spot some obvious contrasts between Europe and Malaysia.
and so in this post, i'm gonna make a simple comparison between Europe&Malaysia,
*through my very own perspective* :)


1st : The Weather
okay this is obvious, hahahaha 
we have the forever dry but moisty Malaysia, while Europe has 4 seasons.

they were having their early Spring when we visited Europe, the weather was still cold, even colder than Genting, and we couldn't really predict the weather as that was known to be the most 'uncertain weather period', so bringing an umbrella out is a must!

In Europe especially Holland, Spring is probably the most popular season, not only favoured by the people, but also by the flowers!
spot this place, Keukenhof , also known as the Garden of Europe and yeap we visited this world's largest flower garden, located in Netherlands!

very very very very very very very very beautiful place. it is just like carpets of blossoming flowers everywhere and how nice would it be to have every girl's dream wedding held here right. hahaha ;P

While for Malaysia, we have no excitative seasons, we have no flower carpets like keukenhof, 
though we have big green rainforests but from a girl's point of view, i prefer colours.
prefer colours = prefer seasons = prefer Europe!

heheheh here comes 1 point to Europe
2nd: The People
okay this is obvious too.
in Europe everyone is so tall and good-looking, lengzai lenglui everywhere HAHAHAHAHA *happy*
trust me, out of 10 people i met at the lanes of Europe, besides children, none of them goes shorter than me.
and all of them look like supermodels!! 
and i told my mum "anyone of them would simply be crowned the next miss universe or antm! damn pretty lehhhhh"
                                          spot da difference between the white and the orangie skin, 
         charming simon and anna ;)

and automatically my brain will come up with these people's faces when it comes to 'European guys'.........

woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo no objections

3rd: The Buildings
all finely built buildings, and i found every place we visited look familiar to me. hahaha
cuz they're almost the same as those in Gossipgirls, sexandthecity, and etc.

             photo taken in Czech Republic, the buildings there are indeed, really awesome art creations.
                                                                the gossip girl scene.

                    the twilight scene! hahaha :P
In this case, i would prefer Malaysia's buildings' shapes and concepts, they make me feel more homey :D
but also, imagine, what would it be if Germany has.....

rumah tinggi?
errrr this is sooooo weird. HAHHAHHAHAAHAHAHA!!


4th: The Lifestyle
doubtlessly i will give this point to Europe!
relaxing, slow life path.

                                      walking on the Europe street is already a luxury to me :)
the people there cycle more than the people here, even in cities!
the outskirt of Netherlands. very peaceful and so fairytale huh. 
it looks like a place where the little red riding hood and her nanny would live :D

In all i prefer the Europeans' free and easy lifestyles than the Malaysians'.
oh and one more thing is, when we traveled from Germany to Czech Republic by car, within the few hours journey, we paid NO toll, not even one!
*it's weird to classify this experience under this lifestyle part but the ability of a country's government DOES affect the people's lifestyles right?!

still i can't accept the fact that no toll payment is needed when we travel around the Europe Unions.
we need to pay at least 2 or 3 tolls just within 30 minutes of driving in KL!
btw Europe still deserves the claps!

3:1 now!
5th: The Fooooooood
you people must love me a lot cuz i'm really torturing myself posting photos of such yummy food while i can't even eat them and i miss ze food veryyyy berrrryyyy muccchhhhhhhh!
aaaaaaaaa whyyyyyyyyyyyy T______________________T

I'm a real big fans of Western food. Sending me to Europe is like giving me a chance to go crazy and to turn into a XXL size. 
                                          damnnnnnn yuuuummmeeeeehhhhhhhhh slurrrrpssssssss

no doubt, i love western food!
but Malaysia's cuisines are equally awesome! I can never deny that.
i'd been missing Malaysia's curry and noodle and all sorts of traditional food after staying a week in Germany, and we even had Chinese fried mihun there just because we missed Malaysia's food too much ;P

the European eat too much of fast food. 
the amount of fast food i ate there is the amount of fast food i took for the past one month. this may sound crazy but it's true! pizza burger french fries onion rings pizza burger.......
And also, i find Malaysia's cuisine has more variety! this must be the real advantage for having people of different races huh ;)

And so, this time, I'll contribute 2 marks to Malaysia while 1 mark to Europe!

and the overall result ........ 
Europe strikes on an extra one point victory over Malaysia!
I still love Malaysia ok MALAYSIA BOLEH 

but if i were to choose a place to live besides Malaysia, Europe will definitely be a place I'd love to go.

if you are planning for a family vacation, never hesitate to travel to Europe!
i bet you'll love it  ;)


  1. i am agree with you. and i like this post. good job yuin! ((:

  2. Can I ask u , if U know about European loving Malaysian foods or not ? and which one U guess they prefer (Malaysian food/Fast food) ?? Thank U :)

  3. Hi there! :) this actually still depends on which kinda person they are, what they would love to experience in Malaysia. But in all, I've met quite many of them whom really prefer Malaysian food over fast food. they love roti canai! :D
