I have seen many strange things in my life but it was still startling to see a Malay or Muslim-looking guy taking part in a Taoist parade. Baffled, I walked alongside him and started a conversation.
Me: Selamat berpesta, bro. (Happy festival, bro)
Guy: Sama sama (likewise).
Me: Boleh tanya, hang in mewakili dewa yang mana satu? (if I may ask dude, which deity do you represent?)
Guy: You bukan Melayu? Saya pun. (You not Malay? Me neither).
Me: Kanasai (like shit in Hokkien).
Guy: Saya Latuk Kong, bro [after which he gave me a fist bump]
