Around 15 years ago, I was sitting on a park bench in Saigon or Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). Sensing I was a tourist, a young girl of maybe 13 or 14 years old, in school uniform, approached me. I was initially apprehensive as there was always a kid peddling something on the streets at that time. She spoke very good English.
She: Which country are you from Sir, if I may ask?
Me: I am from Kuala Lumpur. Do you know where that is?
She: Malaysia! I like geography.
She: What is your country's GDP last year?
