NATIONAL EXCUSE FOR HAIR LOSS:Maggi Mee.

NATIONAL MOST MIS-PRONOUNCED NAME:Carrefour. Sometimes even pronounced as Carry 4!On second thought, why bother pronouncing stupid French brands like Peugeot, Renault or Citroen correctly. I think it sounds better,when the local mechanics say 'Pew Jeot'. When I was in school, Milo was always 'MeeLo', now that I'm sophisticated, I say 'My Lo'. So don't be embarassed saying 'Carry 4' when the ! Mat Sallehs shamelessly pronounce orang utan as 'rangootan'.
NATIONAL ROADSIDE DISTRACTION:The Bra-less Tourist. See how heads turn and traffic slows down when a bra-less Mat Salleh backpacker goes 'bouncing' about on the streets.
