Malaysian Girls

In the country of Malaysia, more than half of the population practices Islam, while the other majority includes Hindus and Buddhists. The Islamic women are known for having a conservative approach, they seldom hook up with anybody and tourists are a big No. While Buddhist and Hindu women are liberal to great extents and some of them do indulge in casual sex and neither do they have any reservations about late night partying and drinking.

In Malaysia, there are quite a few international schools and prestigious institutions. These are the backbone of the education system of the country and the women are well educated, to say the least. Most of the women in the bigger cities, especially, work hard to earn their bachelor’s degree. They also try and learn as much as English as possible to ensure that language isn’t a barrier for growth in their respective careers. These women do go on to work and earn for their families. Many of the women might not be the sole breadwinners for their families but they do make a conscious effort to contribute as much as possible. The women in the smaller cities of the country might not be financially independent but the women from major cities such as Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh certainly are. The wealthy women from the bigger cities are also known for their rich and lavish tastes, so if you wish to please them, you shall need deep pockets as these women are in sync with the latest trends and fads from the fashion industry in Europe. They tend to get quite materialistic while the women from other parts of the country are content with small gestures and simple gifts.

The country of Malaysia has incredible diversity. The diversity being talked about here is that of the women who hail from different ethnic backgrounds. The women of the country of Malaysia can broadly be classified into five different types of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The first and foremost being the most beautiful type of women that you would come across in the country, these are the Iranian immigrants. These Iranian immigrant females have stunning looks, they have an incredibly sexy figure, with perfectly shaped breasts and buttocks, they have fuller lips, fairer skin, long noses, perfectly done up eyebrows as well. Women belonging to this background are mostly in Malaysia because they are either studying or looking for work.

Originally, these women belong to the country of Turkey. These women are most certainly Islamic, but they are not extremely religious, the women have a casual approach to life and are open-minded. The other type of women that you shall encounter in the country of Malaysia are the Saudi females, these women are undoubtedly beautiful, but they are the opposite of the aforementioned Iranian immigrants, these women are extremely religious and they won’t even step out of their houses without their black burquas. They do not interact with strange men and neither shall you be able to see their faces. The third classification of women involves Malay Chinese. The women from this ethnic background are of Chinese ancestry. The women are generally preferred by male tourists who love women with typical Asian features. These would generally include their slender figures with smaller breasts and buttocks, small eyes, and soft-spoken mannerisms.

If you are into Indian women, tourists are lucky in Malaysia as the Malaysian Indians shall serve you everything you need. These women have an uncanny resemblance to Indian females, this includes their brunette hair, dusky complexion, and their deep dark eyes. They have a good figure and for the most part, are highly qualified as well. Last but not least, the women who are natives of the country of Malaysia, the Malays. These women are not the most beautiful, they do have one Asian feature but they do not look like the Malay Chinese women. These women are friendly and soft-spoken, they are moderately religious. In fact, one can easily spot them. They are wearing colorful garbs on top of their clothing.

Out of all the above classifications, it is the best to hook up with Iranian immigrants as they have a liberal approach and to top it all they are sexually appealing. Women from Saudi backgrounds are the worst choice for a tourist as they never indulge in hook-ups and are extremely religious. The Malay Chinese women are a good option for hook-ups as they are sexually available for tourists and they are ready to have a wild night of partying and fun at any given instant. The Malaysian Indian women are a great option to not just hook up with but also to date as these women are the true beauty with brains, they are stunners with degrees of Engineering or PhDs. The Malay women are not too bad to hook up with but they are tough to convince and neither are they physically attractive to most tourists.

Tips for Daytime

As is the case with most of the Islamic countries, the daytime game is not very strong. This is because of the conservative society that judges women interacting with strange men.

Thus, while approaching women, wear your best smart casuals, greet the woman with a hello and break the ice with generic topics such as the weather, latest music, or anything remotely linked to pop culture.

It is essential that you avoid asking women intimate questions including details such as her address, her mobile number, or even worse about her boyfriend or her sex life.
