Malaysian Food

Malaysia is one of the South-East Asia countries. Malaysia can be divided into two parts, West Malaysia and East Malaysia. West Malaysia or Peninsula Malaysia is attached with Asia Continent. Meanwhile, East Malaysia is appended with the Borneo Island, separated apart from West Malaysia by The South China Sea. Malaysia or better known as Tanah Melayu before 1957 was once conquered by Britain, Holland and Japan. One of the reasons why Tanah Melayu was conquered for the past 5 decades was because of its geographic coordinate.

During the conquest of Britain, thousands of immigrants from India and China were taken into Tanah Melayu. Some of the immigrants went back to their own country. However, some of them were not went back to their own country, but stayed and became the citizen of Tanah Melayu. As a result, not only the number of inhabitants of Tanah Melayu increased, but new customs and cultures were also introduced. One of the important aspects of customs and cultures is food.

In this day and age, Malaysia is well known as a multicultural country. There are more than a hundred of races in Malaysia, resulting in the existence sort of foods that symbolise each race. Some of the main ethnic groups or races in Malaysia are Malay, Chinese and Indian.

In Kelantan, one of the states of West Malaysia, Nasi Kerabu is very famous amongst the local. In Malay, ‘Nasi’ means rice. Meanwhile, ‘Kerabu’ is not much different than salad. It is a mixture of salt, onion, slices of cucumbers and other ingredients. Nasi Kerabu is special because the rice is coloured with blue.

Terengganu is one of the East Coast’s States of Peninsula Malaysia. If Kelantan is very popular with Nasi Kerabu, Terengganu is very popular with Nasi Dagang. In Malay, the word ‘dagang’ means business or something that is related to it. It is called Nasi Dagang because in the ancient time, the local used to sell it from one place to another.

Pulau Pinang or Penang, Pahang and Johor are other states of West Malaysia. Penang is located at the north, meanwhile Johor is situated at the south and Pahang at the east. Although there is a difference with the location, but there is a common among these three states. They are popular with ‘Laksa’. We have Laksa Penang, Laksa Johor and Laksa Pahang. Laksa looks like spaghetti or noodle. However, Laksa is white because it is made from rice flour. Laksa is eaten with its special sauce made from fish. Laksa Penang is sour, Laksa Pahang is sweet and Laksa Johor is a little bit spicy.

Another instance of Malaysian foods is curry which is originated from the Indian. Curry is very spicy and usually we eat curry with rice or Roti Canai. ‘Roti’ is a Malay word and means bread.

Abundance of many kinds of foods make Malaysia is distinctive than other countries. Nonetheless, it becomes one of the attractions of Malaysia and indirectly helps the better growth of Malaysia economy.

i spose i could give it a go...

Malaysia is one of the South-East (South-East is the part of a country to the south-east; south-east is the point of the horizon somewhere in between south and east) [south-east] Asia (please use Asian) [Asian] countries. Malaysia can be (that's amusing! but is it devided now or can only be divided when necessary at one's will? unless i'm mistaken and Malasya is not devided at the moment, there must be is) [is] divided into two parts [comma missing!] West Malaysia and East Malaysia. West Malaysia or Peninsula Malaysia is attached with (wrong preposition choice! attach (v) in the passive voice never foll. by with, but always by to) [to] Asia Continent. Meanwhile (meanwhile sounds misty here! it's used under different circumstances and has nothing to do with the context here. please consider whereas) [Whereas] East Malaysia is appended with the Borneo Island comma (if you do use comma here, the reading won't be as smooth as with the conjuction. re-read to make sure.) [and] separated apart (it's OK without apart, loose it!) from West Malaysia by The (need help capitalising proper nouns?) [the] South China Sea. Malaysia, better known as Tanah Melayu, (use commas here) before 1957 was once conquered by Britain, Holland and Japan. (nothing but disorderly crowd of words! put the words into a proper order as follows '... was conquered by Britain, Holland and Japan before 1957. and when u used once did u mean 'once' as 'one time' or 'once' as 'at some point in the past'?) [was conquered by Britain, Holland and Japan before 1957]. One of the reasons why Tanah Melayu was (may be 'remained'?) [remained] conquered for the past 5 (unless you need to write dates or any other vital information that reqires to be represented in digits (ISBN numbers, staff accounts, banker drafts, etc.), write numbers as with letters!) [five] decades was because of its geographical coordinate (may be 'position' or 'placement'?) [placement].

During the conquest of Britain, (Well, Britain was indeed many times about to be conquered by the greedy Romans and Saxons who sought to enhance their influence and extend their lands. yeah, but what does this have to do with your narrative and Malaysia, in particular?) [During the conquest of Malaysia pressed by Britain,] thousands of immigrants from India and China were taken into Tanah Melayu. Some of the immigrants went back to their own country ('contries', Gengie, to be precise! u might like to take on 'homelands'). However, some of them were not went back (lets shits the past time u use one time further forth, what would we have got 'some of them are not go back' no need to tell u it's incorrect!) [The other part of refugees didn't go back] to their country (why? you claimed that all the people were taken from India and China. That's 2 countries! how did you know that the rest of the people who didn't go back to their homes were all from the same country?) [homes], but remained and became the citizen (in plural) [citizens] of Tanah Melayu [instead]. (rewrite the previous sentence using all the words marked up with green) As a result, not only the number of inhabitants of Tanah Melayu increased, but new customs and cultures were also introduced. One of the important aspects of customs and cultures is food.

In this day and age, (honestlty, what did you mean? did you mean to say 'To these days'?) Malaysia is well known as a multicultural country. There are more than a hundred of races in Malaysia, resulting in the existence sort of foods that symbolise each race. (rewrite! i'd suggest the following 'There are more than a hundred of various races in Malaysia and each one has its own sort of food to be symbolised with.) Some of the main ethnic groups or races in Malaysia are Malay, Chinese and Indian.

In Kelantan, one of the states of West Malaysia, Nasi Kerabu is very famous (may be 'popular'?) amongst the local (did you mean, 'natives'?) [native folk]. In Malay, ‘Nasi’ means rice. Meanwhile (no meanwhile here please! use nothing instead because you'd be tired beginning each sentence with a filler) ‘Kerabu’ is not much different from the salad resembling a mixture of salt, onion, slices of cucumbers and other ingredients. (we've just joined together the two previous sentences into a single one because that sounds better). Nasi Kerabu is special because the rice is coloured with blue.

Terengganu is one of the East Coast's (why possessive whilst there's 'of' in front of it? certainly, you can leave the possesive but i'd sugeest you rid of it) [Coast] States of Peninsula Malaysia. If Kelantan is very popular with Nasi Kerabu, Terengganu is very popular with Nasi Dagang. In Malay, the word ‘dagang’ means business or something that is related to it. It is called Nasi Dagang because in the ancient times (please read how to use this particular noun), the local [the native people] used to sell it from one place to another.

Pulau Pinang (also Penang), Pahang and Johor are other states of West Malaysia. Penang is located in ('in' because 'in' means 'towards the direction of') the north, meanwhile (OUT WITH IT, Gingie! at the end of this post see how to put 'meanwhile' right where it belongs.) Johor is situated in the south and Pahang in the east. Although there is a difference with the location, but there is a common among these three states. (this stuff is going you absolutely nowhere! rewrite! one of the examples would be, 'In spite of these three states existing separately, they have actually got something in common' or 'Even though each of these three states exists on its own, there is but a common thing about them') They are popular with Laksa. We have Laksa Penang, Laksa Johor and Laksa Pahang. Laksa looks like spaghetti or noodle (GET RID OF 'However'! u used too many fillers where they shouldn't have been used) and is white because it is made of rice flour. (Join the two sentences together once more!) Laksa is eaten with its special sauce made from fish. Laksa Penang is sour, Laksa Pahang is sweet and Laksa Johor is a little bit spicy. (the last sentennce comes out of nowhere! there should have been a little inroduction to it earlier in the text)

Another instance of Malaysian food is curry which is originated from the Indians. Curry is very spicy and, usually, we eat it with rice or Roti Canai. (it seemed more convincing to have written 'We eat curry with rice or Roti Canai becuase it is very spicy to the taste and it'd unlikely someone tried to eat it separately') Roti is a Malay word and means bread.

[It is all about] abundance of many kinds of foods (see food's definitin in the dictionary) [food] that makes Malaysia distinctive from other countries. Hereby (instead of that 'Nonetheless' of yours. make sure you understand how to use words like 'meanwhile' or 'nonetheless' before you can actually give them a go), it becomes one of the attractions of Malaysia and indirectly [encourages Malaysia economy towards the increase].

and here's the final compilation:

Malaysian Food

Malaysia is one of the south-east Asian countries. It is divided into two parts, West Malaysia and East Malaysia. West Malaysia or Peninsula Malaysia is attached to the Asian continent, whereas East Malaysia is appended with the Borneo Island and separated from West Malaysia by the South China Sea. Malaysia, better known as Tanah Melayu, was conquered by each Britain, Holland and Japan once before 1957. One of the reasons why Tanah Melayu had remained conquered for five decades was because of its geographical placement.

During the conquest of Malaysia pressed by Britain, thousands of immigrants from India and China were taken into Tanah Melayu. After a while, some of the immigrants seemed to have decided to take back to their homelands. The other part of refugees didn't go back to their homes remaining still and became the citizens of Tanah Melayu instead. As a result, not only the number of inhabitants of Tanah Melayu increased, but new customs and cultures were also introduced. One of the important aspects of customs and cultures is food.

To these days Malaysia is well known as a multicultural country. There are more than a hundred of various races in Malaysia and each one has its own sort of food to be symbolised with. Some of the main ethnic groups or races in Malaysia are Malay, Chinese and Indian.

In Kelantan, one of the states of West Malaysia, Nasi Kerabu is very famous amongst the native folk. In Malay, ‘Nasi’ means rice. ‘Kerabu’ is not much different from the salad resembling a mixture of salt, onion, slices of cucumbers and other ingredients. Nasi Kerabu is special because the rice is coloured with blue.

Terengganu is one of the East Coast States of Peninsula Malaysia. If Kelantan is very popular with Nasi Kerabu, Terengganu is very popular with Nasi Dagang. In Malay, the word ‘dagang’ means business or something that is related to it. It is called Nasi Dagang because in the ancient times, the native people used to sell it from one place to another.

Pulau Pinang (also Penang), Pahang and Johor are other states of West Malaysia. Penang is located in the north, Johor is situated in the south and Pahang in the east. In spite of these three states existing separately they have actually got something in common. They are popular with Laksa. We have Laksa Penang, Laksa Johor and Laksa Pahang. Laksa looks like spaghetti or noodle and is white because it is made of rice flour. Laksa is eaten with its special sauce made from fish. Laksa Penang is sour, Laksa Pahang is sweet and Laksa Johor is a little bit spicy.

Another instance of Malaysian food is curry which is originated from the Indians. Curry is very spicy and, usually, we eat it with rice or Roti Canai. Roti is a Malay word for bread.

It is all about abundance of many kinds of food that makes Malaysia distinctive from other countries. Hereby, it becomes one of the attractions of Malaysia and therefore encourages growing of Malaysia economy towards the increase.
