Comparing notes

On a recent trip to KL, I found myself sitting cross-legged on the living room marble floor, sorting out my Singaporean currency from my Malaysian currency.

At this, my friend, J, began her investigation into how Malaysia could be better than Singapore simply by comparing notes.

1. Ours is shinier! Malaysia’s has a silver strip, Singapore’s does not.
2. They stole the designs of our 50 cent coin! But alas, our 50 cent coin is bigger.
3. Look at Agong’s tengkolok! Yusof is not wearing one. I ask her, what is a tengkolok? It’s the headdress made of cloth.
4. And finally, when she ran out of ideas: “Agong more handsome, right??”
