14 reasons to visit Malaysia this year
"Home is wherever I'm with you," Malaysia. A home away from home, a place that welcomes everyone regardless of religion, culture or background.

B. Messages from Malaysian players
I received only one message, but it was from a real Malaysian player SoharaSama
I do remember some facts about eMalaysia.
Before the take over:
1. eMalaysia was ruled by RL Malaysian
We (RL Malaysian) ruled eMalaysia while being occupied by eThailand (RL Serbians). They claimed that Sarawak (Malaysia) region was their 'Holy Land'; and Texas (USA) as their favourite airstrike target. We're not that happy because we lost all of our regions but still it was enough for us as we could still rule our own e-country. For your information, we joined NAN (Non-Alligned Nations).
2. 2000 golds was missing from the treasury
One day, Bdexter a.k.a Hajariyan X2 (http://www.erepublik.com/ms/citizen/profile/4929355), RL Iranian, wanted to become the Country President. We gave him the chance to become the CP but he was too greed! He wanted to become the CP of eMalaysia FOREVER! He bribed some eMalaysians citizens to vote for him and he succeeded. We, as the citizens of eMalaysia were very dissapointed with him as he removed eMalaysia from NAN. During his time, 2k golds were missing from the TREASURY! He accused one of us for stealing those golds but we knew that he was the one who stole it! Why?Because he made a pact with eThailand; 2k golds as the fee tribute to release our regions. We paid eThailand with our own money; private fund from our trusted RL eMalaysian.
We tried to fight lots of PTO attempts but we couldnt do so. We gave up and now lots of us left the game. The End.
During the take over:
We tried to resist it but we couldn't as I mentioned above.
I dont know what happened...
After the take over:
1. eMalaysia regained her regions under RL Romanians rule. It's great but the dictatorship things made the tax way too much high.Kinda suffering atm...
Viva eMalaysia! \o/
