Malaysian time is very elastic,
A laid-back attitude makes life less hectic,
Tardiness is not seen as a moral crime,
Punctuality does not mean you have to arrive in time.
Tardiness is an accepted practice,
Even in the corporate office,
Time is perceived as a gentle stream,
Flowing leisurely like in a dream.
Malaysians are generally not lazy,
They just want life easy,
On time they have a different perspective,
They need to be elastic to be effective.
Unlike the Western world’s clock obsession ,
Malaysians prefer living life in a relaxed fashion,
Malaysians are seldom punctual,
Arriving fashionably late has become habitual.
Malaysia has always been a top producer of rubber,
I don’t mean condoms but natural rubber,
Like the English who love their tea,
Malaysians love their Malaysian Rubber Time also known as MRT.
