    Seremban Malays

    by SLLiew Written Oct 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Seremban, you will find most of the staff in the government offices, banks, police station and post office are Malays.

    Almost all Malay women usually wear a Muslim head scarf and so it is easy for any tourist to know who is Malay.

    Most of Malays live outside the down town in their villages or the new housing flats and residential areas.

    Along Jalan Yam Tuan, you will see most of the shops are Indian owned. It is like "Little India".

    During the British era, many laborers from English ruled India came to Malaysia to work in the rubber plantations as well as in building raliways, roads and construction.

    Unlike Chinese immigrants who were predominantly Buddhist or Taoists, the Indians are more diverse when it comes to religion. They could be HIndus, Christians, Muslims or Sikhs. While you harldy see any Malaysian Chinese wearing cheongsam or sanfu except during special occasions like weddings, you will see many Indians wearing their ethnic traditional wear like saris.

    Seremban Chinese

    Seremban is called "Fuyong". The tin mining attracted many Chinese immigrants to Negri Sembilan.

    When you see the prewar house shoplots, you will see many shop signs with Chinese characters. This is because many of the older Malaysian Chinese do not read English or Malay and can only understand Chinese characters.

    As with many towns, most of the local Chinese live in newer residential areas are outside of the downtown areas where one can have a garden and a place to park a car or two.

    The ethnic Chinese are still the majority of the town dwellers.
