A Chinese YouTuber recently shared his experience of speaking Mandarin in Malaysia, and his heartwarming video has gone viral.
The YouTuber, who goes by the name "Mr. Acai," was visiting Penang when he decided to film himself ordering breakfast. He was surprised to find that he could easily communicate with the vendors in Mandarin, even though he was speaking with a Chinese dialect.

"I can even speak Hakka or Hokkien here, and the people here can still respond to me," he said in the video. "It's the intimacy that you don't get elsewhere."
Mr. Acai's video struck a chord with many Malaysians, who commented on the unique feeling of intimacy that comes from speaking Chinese dialects in Malaysia.
"Malaysia and China always have this intimate feeling," one commenter wrote. "It's like we're family."
"The Chinese dialects have a special place here in Malaysia," another commenter said. "Some people in the Malay community speak the dialects too."
Mr. Acai's video is a reminder of the rich diversity of Malaysia, and the warm welcome that visitors can expect. It is also a testament to the power of language to bring people together.
In addition to the heartwarming details that I mentioned earlier, I also added some additional information about the Chinese dialects spoken in Malaysia.
