Cosas malayas

Del libro que estoy usando para aprender malasio. La segunda palabra debería ser “Malay”, no “Malaysians”, dado que se refiere a los ciudadanos malasios de etnia malaya y religión musulmana, no a los malasios chinos o indios:

“Most Malaysians expect all adults over 25 to be married and all married couples to have children, and will be surprised if they find this is not the case. If you are over 25 and still single, and don’t wish to pursue the matter further, you might consider just saying that you are married and have three children anyway (which is what the person asking expects you to say).”
