Surprising things about Malaysia

(Stealing this question about travel from Tyler Cowen)

1. Clothes and Sandals in the local hypermarket were often more expensive than the equivalent at a Walmart in the US.
2. Many signs in department stores were written only in English and Chinese, although the main language of the country is Malay.
3. A lot of green initiatives everywhere, from CFL light bulbs, to Earth Hour celebrations, to Solar Sabah ads, to plastic bag charges at the supermarket.
