Speaking of a multi-racial society, I noticed that in Penang people seemed to be more chill and accepting of one another than Malaysians typically are on the internet in general. Chinese kopitiams (a local concept of a coffee shop) typically cater to the Chinese community, but a Chinese kopitiam in Georgetown prides itself on serving food that all races can enjoy. No pork and no beef means that Malay Muslims and the Indian community can enjoy the food there without any worries. When I went to the kopitiam there were tables of Malay diners, and some of the staff were Malay too. Really nice to see that Malaysians can come together over food like that.
