Some of these may not actually sound that shocking to you, and that’s probably because you’re guilty of some of these bad habits, but rest assured the rest of the world definitely finds it shocking, and down right rude. Maybe even disgusting. Don’t want to be judged by the people around you? Then be on the look out for these bad habits and try your best to avoid doing any of them:
1. Leaving our trash and dirty trays on the table
Here’s a fun fact a lot of Malaysians don’t seem to know: you’re supposed to clean up after your own trays after eating (at fast food restaurants or cafeterias, that is). Places like McDonalds, KFC and even the IKEA cafeterias aren’t in charge of your dirty tables. You’re supposed to dispose of the trash yourself!
2. Spitting in public

Nobody likes stepping on spit, phlegm or anything else that’s excreted from the body for that matter. It’s not a very nice sight either. So if you really need to spit, find a drain or toilet bowl. Spare our eyes, and shoes.
3. Not flushing after using the toilet
How many times have you walked into a cubicle, looked inside the bowl, and walked right back out, because someone before you didn’t flush? Well, if you don’t like finding un-flushed toilet bowls, make sure you do not do the same! Seriously, Malaysia has one of the dirtiest toilets (even in malls) and this has got to change!
4. Asking “what race was the person?” when we hear of some incident
Whether it was an accident, a robbery, or something gang related, our first response is to ask “what race was the person?”. Not like it matters or makes a difference if the person was Chinese, Indian, Malay, American or some other race, kan?
5. Throwing trash out our car window or littering as we walk
Even if it’s just a small piece of tissue, bear in mind that sedikit-sedikit, lama-lama jadi bukit, and someone else has to pick up after you. Do NOT use the “everyone does it anyway” excuse. If everyone thought the same way, no one will ever stop littering. Take care of our planet people! We only have one that we’re currently living on!
6. Using priority seats that are meant for pregnant women, the disabled and/or elderly
Of course you can use it if there aren’t any pregnant women, disabled or elderly people around; but make sure you keep an eye out!
7. Blocking the entire path on an escalator
If you’re not in a rush, and you just want to stand there while the escalator brings you from one floor to another, you can! Just stand on the left side. Let those who are in a rush walk up/down the right side of the escalator. That way everybody’s happy! Everybody win liao.
8. Forcing our way into places before the people inside can even get out
SMH! Especially when we try to get on a bus or LRT during peak hours. Everyone becomes so kiasu they practically stampede into the vehicle before letting the passengers inside get out. C’mon guys, you need to allow passengers inside to alight before there’s even space for you to get in. It’s not rocket science!
9. Asking for discounts on fixed prices or already-discounted items while shopping
Most, if not all retail shops in malls DON’T offer additional discounts and yet we still catch Malaysians trying to bargain for cheaper prices. Also, don’t bother asking–or scolding–the shopkeeper or part time worker for discounts. You’re not going to get any because they’re not in charge of the prices!
If you want discounts so much, nah, here’s an exclusive voucher code for you: ‘WOBSS8‘. Read on to find out more!
If you really want a place where you can get cheaper or more affordable deals, you can always hunt for on-sale items or just shop online because we all know there always seems to be a promotions going on!
