Malaysia - Traditions and Daily life
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman

1     Many different people live in Malaysia. They come from different countries. They are Malays, Chinese, Indians, Europeans, and others. All of them have their own culture. They have their own traditions and way of life. The traditions of all these people have formed the unique culture of Malaysia.
2     Malays are the natives of Malaysia. They mostly live in rural areas. Most live in villages rather than towns. In these villages, Malays build houses on pilings or stilts. They raise the house four to eight feet off the ground. The roofs on these village houses are often made of thatch. Since many of these villagers are poor, more modern building materials are out of reach. Malays with more money live in houses with wooden floors and tile roofs.
3     All Malaysians love music. Malaysian music is very distinct. You can hear a lot of Chinese and Islamic music in it. The melody is played around the "gendang"--a kind of drum. It includes many different instruments--flutes, trumpets, and gongs. Some of the instruments in Malaysia are even made out of shells!
