Had tapas lunch today with a good friend who was born in Malaysia, has Malaysian mother, reminiscing about the time when Singapore ceded from the Malay Federation. Some of the similarities with the current problems within the EU, as previously seen by the US.

However, on a nice day I have no problems about flipflops and table cloth on the estate, probably wouldnt go shopping dressed like that though, one has ones standards to keep up, don't you know!
Although Singapore's final exclusion had a racial element in it and more than likely worked out to Singapore's longer term advantage.

Malaysia has some very fashionable centres these days. KL has better dressed folk than UK.
In some of the regional centres you would be fine in flip flops and casual attire. Perhaps not so much has even changed from your times?

Still say worth a trip for old times sake.
