Something Malaysian

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.
