Do You Know….

…why our country is called Malaysia?

I have never really thought of this until just now when I was watching Discovery Channel.

I was watching this episode about the history of Singapore and it reached this one part where it talked about how Singapore gained its independence by joining up with Malaysia.

All of us knew about that part. But here’s the interesting part.

Remember last time during our history class (where most people doses off) we all learned that Malaysia was once known as Malaya and upon gaining independence, we chose Malaysia as our country name?

Why Malaysia? Well because when Singapore joined us, our leaders decided to take the S and the I from SIngapore and insert it in between Malaya to become MalaySIa!

I never knew this! I don’t remember this being published in the history books that we all studied. When the commentator said that, all of us who were watching were saying : “Really?! O.o”

Today I discovered something! ^^,
