Malaysia: Curious Penang People

The blogger at malaysiandaily.com writes about the curiousity of people in Penang city. “Each time, there's a road accident on one side of the road, the other side of the road's traffic will be terribly affected. Every driver would slow down to view the accident scene. There are a few theories behind such behaviours. Some claim that Penangites are a caring lot. That's the reason they stop and have a look. While other parties seem to think that Penangites are heavy “4D” investors. The number plate of the vehicles involved in road accident is your passport to wealth”. 4D is a type of lottery popular in Malaysia and Singapore.
