This is not the worst. The worst I I have seen is an official large map of "Malaysia" used for putting on the wall of schools. You guessed it. Huge illustration of West Malaysia showing terrain, roads and multitudes of cities and towns. I had to look for East Malaysia. Found it huddled in the bottom corner with Sabah in a tiny illustration. No terrain, just a bare outline. Showed only Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu, Miri and roads connecting them. I still see that bloody map on sale at bookshops usually selling school books. Makes one feel unwanted I would say.
This is insulting, or maybe they have no budget for the other half of Malaysia, same like those economic plan, until now.

'We serve all of Malaysia!' Oh, and p.s. 'and Sabah & Sarawak.'

I think I saw a guidebook somewhere with this title 'Malaysia: including Sabah and Sarawak.' Reads as if Malaysia is only Malaya, and the two Borneoan states are mere oddities eligible as footnotes.

It's actually more amusing to see National Geographic maps of Sarawak being more detailed than the ones under official publication.

i saw the advertisement of "The Rail World" on 8tv. The host, Henry Golding says, ".... Pahang, the largest state in Malaysia ...". and he himself is half Iban. either the script writer or himself is stupid enough to not realise this. stupid.
