Malaysia is mainly Muslim country with significant number of Hindus and Buddhist living there. People from different religions are living in harmony for decades and you won't witness any discrimination when it comes to religious believes.

Everyone can find what suits him. Rice is the most common basis for all the meals but it is really the different types of meat and spices that are used that makes this food so delicious.
