Rotating Logos     Rotating Logos Tourism Malaysia   Places in Malaysia Malaysia is a multi-racial country, with Malay, Chinese and Indians as the major races. In Sarawak, their major race / ethnics group is orang Iban and in Sabah, the major race is the Kadazan. Therefore, we have many cultural celebrations in Malaysia. In Penang, majority of its people are of Chinese race. So most of the cultural celebration written here are Chinese culture and celebrations. It seems that the Malays do not have many cultural events. Their cultures are mostly in the form of dance and music like joget, zapin, boria, etc where they perform during a certain season for certain occasions mostly in east Peninsula Malaysia. The Indian race has many prayer celebrations and many gods too but I do not know about them. I was informed that July is their prayer month especially prayer for fire walking occasion.      Places in Malaysia
