So why be a pessimist?

Although I have been in London now for coming onto 10 years, I spent my formative years growing up in Penang (specifically; going to St. Christopher's School) and I say this to those who complain about the drivers there ...
"Life's too short people!!!"
When in Rome and all that sort of stuff ... to me, Penang will always symbolise the best that is Malaysia; food and climate to name but 2! Me, I will always be proud to say that if you can drive (and live through the experience!!) in Penang, you can drive anywhere in the world ... and on your terms!
As long as Penang doesn't become like KL, that's all that matters.
