Chinese ... A .. B... C

Yesterday was the 9th day of CNY and it was an auspicious day for Hokkien-lang. It’s a day where they honour the ‘sky god’. The Chinese is an interesting race with many sub-species. The Cantons, predominantly found in KL and JB… the Hokkiens, predominantly in Klang and Penang… the Fuchow, predominantly in Setiawan and Johor with Hakkas and Teowchews forming the Chinese community in Malaysia.

But you know what? I think nowadays, there are only 3 main sub-species in the Chinese race. It’s very easy to identify them… they are the Type A, Type B and Type C… damn easy right?

Type A Chinese:

These are the (A)ng-moh-wannabes, pre-dominantly found in KL and PJ. They probably represent 20% of the Chinese in Malaysia, and growing. Naturally, most of these Type A Chinese speak English, even if they can speak a mother tongue. If they can’t, even better! Being a banana is a privilege, not a shame. While being a Malaysian, they think they are Australian. Once heard a Type A Chinese said he can speak 3 types of languages… Australian English, American English and British English… I guess Type A Chinese can be quite stupid.

Like majority of the Malaysian population, Type A always wants an easy life. The worst residence that they are willing to dwell in is a condo. Shitting must be done on a sitting toilet bowl, shit somehow refuse to be disposed when their legs are bent legs past 90 degrees. Computer means notebook, a desktop is ‘not up to standard’. And internet is meant for surfing. iPod is a must.

To them, celebrities only exist in Hollywood. Series only appear in the form of “CSI”, “Desperate Housewives”, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Heroes” to them. Watching Hong Kong TVB Series is… 1) Not cool… 2) A serious threat to their Ang-Moh status. Rice means carbo, but somehow, pasta is not.

They are blessed with the ability to speak Malay with an English accent… “S’ya mau satu-h roti ch’nai… please”. And then turn around and say… “Gosh, I wish they have more mamaks in Australia, ya’ know”.

Type B Chinese:

These are the (B)engs&Lians, probably makes up about 25% of the Chinese community in Malaysia. It’s easy to spot Type B Chinese, the colour of their hair is anything but black. They smoke not becos it's cool, but becos it makes them look ‘fearsome’.

Most of them drive a Proton, though it may not look like one. Further, one Proton has enough amplifiers and speakers to power 6 Protons. This is because being ‘loud’ is one of the main trademark of Type B Chinese… ranging from having exceptionally loud voice to incredibly loud phone ringing tones.

Celebrities mainly come from Hong Kong and Taiwan. They can quote the current partner or gf or bf or husband or wife or any celebrity with ease, and secretly fantasises that they are the bf/gf of those celebrities. The female species of Type B Chinese enjoy having the following phrase as description in their Friendster photos…. “Me!”… “Me again”… “Me me me”… “Is I cute?”… “Cute leh…”

They are blessed with the ability to blend vulgar words with every single sentence…. “Boss! Cepat la! Cibai! Teh tarik satu!”. And then turn around and say… “Man do haiiii kam yeong”

Type C Chinese:

This type of Chinese makes up 55% of the Chinese community in Malaysia and is by far, the most important type of all Chinese. They are the ones who diligently work their ass off quietly despite being paid peanuts. They are the regular… (C)ina (pronounced chee-na).

They are the ones who drive the economy, who keep things going for without them, there will not be any development in this country. They are the one that gets ripped off, but stay quiet about it, for as long as they can make a living, life will go on as it is. They perceive Type A Chinese as ‘high-class people’, ‘rich’ and ‘lansi’ whilst Type B Chinese are “bad people”.

Generally speaks Mandarin or Cantonese or both. They may not be able to speak extravagant English, but their written English can be quite exceptional. Due to this, most have low self esteem. But lo and behold, a “F*uck you!” from Type C Chinese is more powerful than “Tiu lei” from Type B or “F*ck you” form Type A.

They are generally quiet, slow to speak with reasons such as “I like to keep low profile, I am here just to work”. But on the other hand, one must be careful when dealing with Type C Chinese, they bear the genes of true Chinese… sly, cunning, shrwed and calculative.

They are blessed with the ability to always see the best deal…”Fish and Chips… Ice-lemon tea”… turns around and say…”order same la, a lot of flench flies wan, and ice-lemon tea can refill wan”.

Princess Eileen said...

Muahahaha.... excellent post Zewt! Absolutely make me giggles all way through. I think I am pretty much the stereotyped C. However, I mingle with type A & B before, and you describe them so well. Esp the Bengs & lians type, about their cars and the way they use vulgar languages. LOL!!!

Eh, how about yourself?

Jessica said...

Hmm...I see you in one of the characters, particularly strong in one. You know which one is it. Describes you very well. Is that how you write it, describing about yourself? heheheh!!

zewt said...

freelunch2020 - wah... you 'da luin jong' already if you're ABC hahaha!

angel - I think I am AC too simply becos that's like the main combination of most chinese. I would think I have a healthy equilibrium... haha!

anon fm miri - hello, thanks for your compliment.

huei - haha, that 3 accents are really stupid la, dont think u wanna learn them. if you have accent, then good lor... just speak with your own style. ABC... really 'da luin jong' already haha!

purple mushroom - are you sure?

princess eileen - you sure you're not a B? everyone seems to deny that they are a B... I am A+C I guess, with a healthy equilibrium.

Jessica - which one you see me ah? maybe i am describing you?

QueenB said...

Superb study of an ethnic sub-culture! Should compile it into a book complete with illustrations, including a chapter on 'mat rempit's, Malaysia's brand of 'punk'd angels', a cross breed of Punks and Hells Angels!

Huei said...

Princess Eileen said...

Why I am not type B:

Fact 1: the colour of their hair is anything but black. (Mine is black, even though I have streaks highlighted brown).

Fact 2: They smoke not becos its cool, but becos it makes them look ‘fearsome’. ( I dont smoke).

Fact 3: Most of them drive a Proton, though it may not look like one. Further, one Proton has enough amplifiers and speakers to power 6 Protons. (I dont drive a proton and my amplifiers are normal).

Fact 4: Celebrities mainly come from Hong Kong and Taiwan. They can quote the current partner or gf or bf or husband or wife or any celebrity with ease, and secretly fantasises that they are the bf/gf of those celebrities. (I watch more american series, I dun like to watch crying series)

Fact 5: The female species of Type B Chinese enjoy having the following phrase as description in their Friendster photos…. “Me!”… “Me again”… “Me me me”… “Is I cute?”… “Cute leh…”(Hahaha, I used one only - This is me~, come on)


Fact 6: They are blessed with the ability to blend vulgar words with every single sentence…. “Boss! Cepat la! Cibai! Teh tarik satu!”. And then turn around and say… “Man do haiiii kam yeong”(I dont talk like that, besides I am in Shanghai, they wont understand if I speak like that, hahaha)

CONCLUSION: I AM DEFINITELY NOT A B!!!

dy said...

haha!

i think i'm a lil bit of A,B and C.

A- because i live in KL. filled with A-type of people/friends..

B- because i have the ability to blend vulgar words in almost every sentences...

C- damn you're right about the iced lemon tea...

the witch's broo said...

zewt,

this is really interesting. But I have to tell ya... I am neither of these.
There must be a D! The best combination of all three. Oooh.aint I sump'n?
(PS; I think my Malay friends say its "perasan" or something like that)

muststopthis said...

Wah Liau eh..SUre or Not?

Good one . Zewt.

Anonymous said...

This is an interesting one - read with much amusement (!) Am tempted to forward to my dear sisters, for fear that they're now living dangerously askewed towards the realms of A... (*taps fingers and ponders*)

King's wife said...

LOL! Good and funny categorisation. I can squat and shit, so I'm definitely not A. hahaha!!!

pink fairy princess sa said...

I'll take AC
hahaha...so which category are you?
better tell~~*staring*

Maverick SM said...

I am type D Chinese..thinks like a donkey, behave like a monkey and write like a sissy. But I have self-esteem, motivated and worked hard to earn penny, and live like a pauper.

However, I love blogging and schooling.

Kenny Mah said...

"Once heard a Type A Chinese said he can speak 3 types of language… Australian English, American English and British English… I guess Type A Chinese can be quite stupid."

Hilarious. I guess I am mostly Type A, can talk like Type B in their company (hey, if I just speak Mandarin, most of them are convinced I'm Chinese-educated, ok what), but usually work my ass off like a Type C.

But seriously, we are all Type M, rite? Malaysian Chinese? Them fools who think they are ABC (American-Born Chinese) need to check their birth certificates... :P

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

However... I always like to put the 2 words, i.e. "fug tub" in my chats and email. Also the "T" word.
I'm bloody fug tub now. Have to admit that I'm a bit of B also la.

Chen said...

I'm type D Chinese :P
Not in the list...
hahaha

Anonymous said...

I a type F Chinese.

A "Failed" Chinese, since I am Malay.

Cocka Doodle said...

Great post, Zewt. But I'm type D. Damn Diu type. LOL

zewt said...

QueenB - cant do a sub chapter for mat rempits when i write about chinese, it's almost non-existent. on the other hand, if there's a mat title for those in modified cars with big exhaust, then yeah....

Huei - hahaha, yeah, the whole world know u can squat and shit now! B + C heh... not a bad combination la, I think A+B is the most 'da luin jong' type... total opposite...

princess eileen - wahhhh ok la... i am now very very convinced that you're not type B la... hahaha...

dy - hahaha... the ice lemon tea eh... i thought for quite a long time before i came up with something like that.

witch's broo - So many ppl claim they are D... an easy way out. What is sump'n?

muststopthis - Hello there, welcome to my blog. I've been tagged before and I said it's my first and last, so sorry dude... no more tags... see ya around.

king's wife - just becos you can squat and shit doesnt mean you're not type A... haha... this is not an elimination method thing.

zewt said...

pinky fairy - another A+C... I am same as you I guess... A+C, a very good combination with a healthy equilibrium. I think type B is bad... haha!

Maverick - hahahaha.... of all the type D, i think i like your type D best!! i love blogging too. as for schooling, wait till ih have money.

Kenny Mah - very good my friend, expect something like that from you... type M... Did you hear that eveyryone?? we are all type M! Kudos to Kenny for that. As for ABC... i think most prefer to be australian born chinese rather than american.

Purple Mushroom - why so fug tub la... now, that's a new term.

Cocka Doodle - I thought that's type T? hahahaha

to all the anonymous - thanks for dropping by. whether you're D or E or F... Kenny said we're all M and that's true. To the one who's thinking of sending to your sis... just do it.

:: Nicole :: said...

i am ABSOLUTELY an AC and NOT a B as i don't smoke, not loud enough, don't worship HK or Taiwan celebrities, don't drive a Proton and last but not least, i don't swear in chinese! muahahahaha! not up to my standard leh if swear in chinese *ROFL*

Cirnelle said...

The extremes in each category just counted me out as a Chinese.

Not A: Don't know any of those slangs
Not B: Don't know any Hongkie stars
Not C: Can't speak Mandarin or Cantonese (how in the world I could survive in KL, I have no clue)

zorro said...

Kong kong Zorro is classified under Class A. OCBC, orang cina bukan cina I have been branded with. But I aint anglophile. I hate affected speech, like some of our kids who come back from overseas after their first semester and try to speak like a Brit. I bandied with one nephew: Ivan, did you get stook in the mood? He looked dumb so I translated in plain English: Did you get stuck in the mud? Labeling myself as A I still do not possess the accoutrements of a class A road warrior, iPod and all.Notebook yes, its my second wife.I do not qualify in the B category, because Mrs Zorro has threatened divorce proceedings if I even think about burnt-sienna hair coloring! Ah Bengs are also into tatoos, no? I can empathise with Type C...yes they are the work-horse...they throw coal into the economy-steam engine and together with the migrant workers, built our cities. They are the ones who are straight forward. Filling up a form for some licence, under sex, they will normally write, Depends or if available, or sometimes or hopefully. But all three types make up the indomitable, irascible,exasperating, incomprehensible and innovative chinaman. Thats us...an amalgation.

Deisy said...

what's wrong with some B characteristics wor?

My hair is black. I am good girl and not ahlian. But, I like to used vulgar words when I talk to good frens to express my disatisfaction towards something.. e.g. dulan, tiu, KNN, F**k, ... it helps me release the pressure tremendously!! ;)

Dangerous Variable said...

I m a little bit of type A minus the part where I speak with an accent. I prefer the english TV programs more than the HK/China TV programs.

I am a type B also minus the proton for not being a proton car. I drive an old beat up Iswara Aeroback, red color. No modifications, no loud exhaust and no booming speakers. However, i do swear and curse like ma-hai, chow ci-bai and the every utilising fuck you!

I am also the C type because I work hard but as dumb and stupid to let people swindle my money or cheat me. I am sly and cunning, calculative and can say fuck you too!

I LOL-ed when I saw this posting! Nice blog you have!

Thanks for visiting me!

Economist said...

zewt you better reply this......

i assume i am AC but i watch desperate housewives while i also like to follow TVB series...

i think most ppl haf traits of ABC...its just the PROPORTION that differs....

but dont brand B ppl la...not all are drivin protons...bugger mostly i think drive honda now ...jazz n civic...

gRaCe said...

Hey Zewt..great post! was smiling the whole time..heheh.. i guess i'm more of a type A compared to B(never ever!!) or C (mandarin sucks, canto can la..but no peribahasa or anything. lolzz..) but without the accent tho..

i do agree fully with Kenny that we shud all be a type M. i am more malaysian chinese rather than whtever ABC or sumthin..;o)

Princess Eileen said...

economist: Do not humilate the honda drivers..... I think more Protons... Izzit because you are driving a proton? hahahaha....

zewt said...

wow.... this is turning into some mini forum... :P

nicole - you survive cos you have your loving hubby mah, right? :P

zorro - mite, how's ya mud t'day? hahaha... it's really amazing how some young punk and go overseas, spend 1 semester and lose the way that they have been speaking for 18 years. on us being work-horse, we are certainly a resilient lot...

deisy - wahh... so you're admitting to be a B? wahh wahh wahh... you will be the first to take up the type B identity here! ... go for it!

dangerous variable - hello brother, welcome to my blog... sorry, no red carpet. most ppl here would take up the AC combination but i think most of us have a bit of ABC... with us trying to keep the B under the carpet. As long as we are not type R... rempit, then we're fine.

economist - i said i will reply, i sure reply wan... hahaha, i drive a honda, but i dont think i am B la. speaking of which , i do watch certain tvb series... hmmmm

grace - hi there, thanks for dropping by. how we wish we can proudly declare ourselves as type M, but i guess that notion is not quite possible for the time being. seems like type B is really the most not preferred type...

princess eileen - ya wor... i drive a honda... cannnot humiliate me ! hahahaha

Princess Eileen said...

Muahahaha... Zewt, I drive a honda too back in KL :P

zorro said...

So Zewt, wasnt this tag thingy, a good destresser.....so many guys and dolls scrambling to your blog. Remember I told you to lighten up...see, everybody loves you. Me too...but from a distance. Take a night off from gf or bedmate. Come to National Press Club on Friday....its Bloggers Nite.

-Princess Shin- said...

Oh dear.. I think I'm A.. but not the serious kind. Haha..

Angel said...

SuLee said...

wan said...

Thx for the comment. Nice place you got here.

gRaCe said...

always a pleasure reading good blogs..;o)

yea, well..most not preferred by me anyway. hehe..yep, its really hard to find a type M one. sighh..

ohh, u forgot to mention one thing..long fingernail on the last finger. tht is the ultimate no, no for me in a guy.. but it seems that typical chinese guys will mostly have that. sheesh..

economist said...

zewt & princess eileen

I am not humiliating any1
Its a fact that alot of B type ppl are driving hondas (esp in JOHOR)..of course by default more are driving proton due to "NATIONAL INTEREST"

Of course just because u r chinese n u drive proton/honda u wont be by default categorise as B

hahah i think the issue is ppl are avoiding being branded type B hahaha.....

dy said...

what's your email address?

bongkersz said...

this is so farking funny haha! :D great post zewt! I love this part the most

'“Me!”… “Me again”… “Me me me”… “Is I cute?”… “Cute leh…'

how very true :P guess you have a lot of type B chinese girls after you heh zewt? let me see your friendster friends list hahahaha!

i'm ABC i guess, nowadays i speak english most of the time, i watch csi, prison break, heroes, grey's anatomy, oh just that i don't have any accent :P wtf, really got people order roti canai - roti ch'nai?? i drive proton, but the amplifiers are normal. er i do sometimes blend vulgar words in my sentence depends on conditions, audiences..

aiya, being type B can be fun lah sometime guys, an educated ah beng, not a bad thing eh? haha! oh, something to share, type c is what most other races will refer as - kotak. yes, kotak -box. why? ask your friends then :P ask them what is chee-na kotak..

bongkersz said...

and i watch tvb series too :D lol, i even watch malay dramas if i got nothing better to do..

QueenB said...

Try doing a study of malaysian stereotypes, lor

zewt said...

zorro - yeah, i have really learnt to lighten up over the last few years, what's this national press club?

princess shin - hmm.. what is not the serious kind of A? I am A + C... with a good equilibrium :)

angel (kigai) - depends on what's your other half....

sulee - hahaha... no la, you're just normal.

me - an equally eloquent comment sent.

wan - thanks for yours too.

grace - we will only admit that we are type M when we are NOT in M... been there done that... sad but true. perhaps B also stands for Bad... that's why... sounded lame.

economist/eileen - honda or saga... i think everyone can be a type B. i have personally seen a type B who drives a BM... how about that??!!?

dy - i'll ask yee meng to sms it to you. thanks in advance for the instructions, i really need to alter my layout.

bongkerz - hey bro, how are you? long time no see you here la... hahahaha, glad my post made you laugh. as for roti ch'nai, i wish i can demonstrate to my readers how it's being pronounced hahaha! hey, you should also watch desperate housewives, season 1 is good haha! malay drama? wahhhh! you da man!

hmmm... i really need to ask around what is chee-na kotak...

queenB - hmm... and write a book?

flaminglambo said...

Squatting toilets make my legs cramp up.

I'd say I'm AB. Used to love Young and Dangerous. Still do actually. Sooo 7 cool la wei. Mou tiu you one. Plus, I listen to Canto/Mandarin songs even though most of the time I have no idea what they're going about but emo. tou haiiiii kam yeong.

Princess Eileen said...

Zewt, you can do a youtube or clip and attach in your blog. Let us hear the "roti ch'nai" with action please. I tried but it sounds more like a vulgar word. Muahaha....

Just curious, why guys watch desperate housewives? I cant relate to the show, probably becoz of age/status gap. Oh gosh, I am watching the L word, does that mean....

Diane said...

Boy, you should become a journalist!

Wait, are you? :D

Thanks for dropping by. I think I'm coming back here.

bongkersz said...

good idea, zewt, do a video of you mouthing out 'roti ch'nai puhlease...' haha! em, i used to love Young and Dangerous too! all 7 installments of it lol.. but, Young and Dangerous not really beng-ish..

bongkersz said...

desperate housewives, sudah tengok lah bang.. now busy with prison break season 2 :)

p/s: just came back from cny holidays and found out my pc died on me sob.. sob..

zorro said...

NPC. Let say you just passed Dataran Merdeka on your left and are heading towards the Lake Garden. After the underpass traffic lights take the first left turn and find a parking at immediate right. Take a less than a minute walk and you wont miss the National Press Club. Walk further and you are at Bukit Aman police depot.See you there, 2morrow nite.

Horny Ang Moh said...

HA!HA!I WANDER WHAT TYPE I AM, MAYBE ALL THREE PLUS EXTRA!!! 'HORNY' THAT IS. TQ 4 READING MY 'HORNY' EBTRIES. SORRY IF I MADE U FEEL HUNGRY. HAVE A NICE DAY.

ambrosia said...

Zewt

Classify me, please. This is a real case.

My father is Chinese, my mother is Chinese. That makes me Chinese, right?

But according to records, I am Malay!

I am NOT adopted. Both my parents with whom I am living now are my real biological (Chinese) parents. My birth certificate records that I am the daughter of my biological parents. But my birth cert also says I am Malay!

There is NO administrative error at all in my birth cert.

How do you explain this? Anyone?

(I will explain in a subsequent post)

zewt said...

flaminglambo - yo! hahaha... so if you have to shit a lot... then your legs die la??? dont think loving Y&D makes 1 a B.... being a gangster doesnt mean you're a B... one thing for sure... those mandarin songs damn lan 7 emo!

eileen - no need la, i am sure u all have good imagination. desperate housewives is nice cos it's mystery and subtle humour... not jus sex sex sex la...

Dianne - I would prefer to become a columnist... working on it. for the meantime, this blog shall be my column... thanks for dropping by and looking forward to seeing you here more.

bongkerz - i also like Y&D la...hahaha... particularly like 'dai fei'... the tidak apa attitude and portrayed by one of the best actor around. i guess you got your pc fixed by now ... your turn to blog!

zorro - we shall see

horny ang moh - you are definitely type H! hahahahaha!

ambrosia - now this one really is interesting....

i really dunno why you're a malay despite being in that situation. my guess would be you embraced islam and practise the life of a muslim? that's what how the constitution defines a malay (something like that)....

i await your next post... hopefully here and not your blog cos i dunno what's your URL.

I am a combination of Type A, Type B and Type C, the mixed blood.

[end quote]

Here's the explanation:

My father, a full-blooded Chinese, was adopted by a Malay family, and grew up as a Malay.

He married my mother, a full-blooded Chinese, who converted to Islam.

So here I am, a full-blooded Chinese who is a Malay. Though I am culturally Malay, my Cina genes are very strong: fair skin, sepet eyes, some characteristics of A and C (no B obviously).

So, unlike you guys, I am a Chinese with bumi priveleges! Muahahahah!! *evil laugh*

Life is not fair, is it?

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

Any chinese can have bumi priviledges as long as they convert to islam in BolehLand.

In my opinion, Ambrosia, you are both technically and logically a Malaysian Chinese Muslim.

Chinese will always be chinese. Period.

Economist said...

wah lau how come change into forum to discuss NEP alredi hahahah.....

in ambrosia's case (fr what he/she wrote) ....it was a circumstance that lead to him/her being classified as malay...anyway how do they determine bumiputera anyway...all those joes fr indon n paki n where else also can be bumi i dont see y chinese cant be....as if they r not immigrants....

as fro despy housewives.....there might be sex innuendoes but there is no real scenes anyway.....its jsut the storyline that is interesting....

zewt said...

sagaladoola - mixed blood as in.... not pure chinese? no worry bro, i am indeed reading your blog.

ambrosia - hi there, you have a very interesting story... i will probably post the next entry about your comment... hope you dont mind.

purple mushroom - ya, you are right, anyone can be a 'malay' and enjoy bumi status in malaysia based on the institution. but the chinese blood shall remains....

economist - hahahaha... ya la... into a forum already and honestly, i am enjoying it. it's good to be in intellectual conversation with others. will blog about this issue in the next entry.

Calvin's Girl said...

Am everything of the above state... ABC hehehe.

From my understanding, Type C very little dee nowadays, those r educated uncles from half a century ago. Type B are the young ones fr Chinese Education, most of them. Type A mostly are those sudah keluar negara belajar ones.

For a descent outgoing Chinese girl or guy, I think it would most probably be a lot of A + A little bit of B + a tiny bit of C.

Hor ny Ang Moh said...

HI ZEWT SORRY TO MADE U FEEL HUNGRY AGAINST. READING AT ALL THE ABOVE COMMENT QUITE INTERESTING, BUT I WILL STAY OUT OF IT, HOR NYING IS WHAT I AM INTEREST IN. HAVE A NICE DAY.

FriendfromTaiwan said...

I recieved an email with the same content as this roughly a while back but you have altered it more fittingly very well... the original desribe type A as "regular Chinese" and was obviosly written by a hardcore banana... bananas are disgrace , live in Malaysia but act like live in Oz, learn some Chinese you confused freaks! you can you speak english can be white is it?

zewt said...

Calvin's girl - I think type C is still very much alive, particularly in small towns. And the small towns are constantly supplying type C into big cities like KL, so i reckon the tabulation will be pretty balance, at least for the next 10 years, simply becos type A will just all migrate away.
