Then take something from them to get DNA test if you're curious about their genetic background.

Visitor numbers definitely still play a role in how known a place is. Australians and Britons visit Malaysia much more than the Phils. We know what laksa, horfun, roti canai, nasi goreng is. Most Australians cannot name on Filipino dish.

I thought the topic was about Which has a higher standard of English, Malaysia or Philippines?
lol I guess you just want to hear us to shout out that Malaysian is the best overall than the Philippines. You cannot hide how much you dislike us.

They visit but doesn't mean the country and the people are widely known... Maybe just to some Anglo countries. You don't really hear so much about Malaysia in the news except last month because of the plane. How will it get popular globally when it doesn't have controversy ??? Malaysians keep a low profile unlike Filipinos that are always being talked about. You should know that because you always talk about us here. Admit it, we are more popular... Otherwise, you wouldn't even bother talking about us or creating posts about us and and our country.

So ??? We have other visitors from other countries too. If you have Ausies that know more about your culture, we also have Americans that also know more about our country and know nada about Malaysia. Haay, you really want a competition.

No it's because I always here people talking about the Philippines here. IRL not so much. My parents visited back in the 1980s, actually, and I will say the Filipinos I've met have mostly been really nice and friendly, I have nothing against them. The country itself though doesn't appeal that much.

you should probably never visit because if you're complaining about it without even visiting, I can't imagine how miserable it'd be if you actually went there. The Philippines isn't for most people. You have to be a person that can go with the flow. You have to be very extroverted as well. Otherwise, you'll hate it and complain the whole time.

There are few countries I have no interest in, I have some interest in the Philippines, not as much as others, but I'll probably go someday.
