Malaysia has a diverse range of immigrants and ethnic populations, which means that everyone is different, and most people are used to dealing with those from very different cultural backgrounds. The three main ethnic group in Malaysia are Malay, Chinese and Indian and, along with many indigenous ethnic groups, they blend to form a unique melting pot of cultures, cuisines and traditions.
Malaysia's official language is Bahasa Malaysia. Many Malaysians also speak English, which is generally considered the language of business in Malaysia. Other languages spoken in Malaysia are Cantonese, Mandarin and Tamil.
Showing respect to others is an important aspect of Malaysian life and it's essential to greet people properly. A handshake is a standard greeting in Malaysia between men. Direct eye contact may be avoided and some Malaysians lower their eyes when greeting as a sign of respect.

Malaysian Food

Malaysian cuisine consists of cooking traditions and practices found in the Southeast Asian country of Malaysia, and reflects the multiethnic makeup of its population.[1] The vast majority of Malaysia's population can roughly be divided amongst three major ethnic groups: Malays, Chinese and Indians. The remainder consists of the indigenous peoples of Sabah andSarawak in East Malaysia, the Orang Asli of Peninsular Malaysia, the Peranakan and Eurasian creole communities, as well as a significant number of foreign workers and expatriates. As a result of historical migrations, colonisation by foreign powers, and its geographical position within its wider home region, Malaysia's culinary style in the present day is primarily a melange of traditions from its Malay, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian and ethnic Bornean citizens, with heavy to light influences from Thai,Portuguese, Dutch, and British cuisines - to name a few. This resulted in a symphony of flavours, making Malaysian cuisine highly complex and diverse.
