There is something Malaysian about using words as an indicative of the state you are in. For instance, the psychiatric wards at Hospital Kuala Lumpur are name Ward Melor 1, 2 ,3 and 4, while the Pertahanan Awam (basically a prison) cells are at a place called Air Panas (meaning hot water). But this only applies to places that should you be there, you would wish you were someplace else.
By the way, I included these Lat cartoons because this part of Malaysia, essentially Malay Malysia is fast disappering. I wonder what we will become.
