Shang-Chi Star Ronny Chieng Proves That He Is Still Malaysian With A Malaysian Passport!

How to prove that you’re Malaysian?

If you are able to use the word “lah” at the end of any sentence (and it makes sense!), then there’s no doubt that you were born and raised in this country.

Malaysia-born Shang-Chi actor, Ronny Chieng proved he’s still a Malaysian at heart recently, while wishing Malaysians a happy Malaysia Day.

In a video that was shared by Marvel Studios Malaysia, the Johor Bahru-born actor shared what makes him a Malaysian, while also flaunting his Bahasa Melayu. We’re impressed! 

“Number one, I still have a Malaysian passport. Look at this! What more proof do you need? Number two, I still use my ‘lah’ and ‘meh’ all the time, like ‘boleh lah’, ‘can meh’, ‘can lah!’”

“And number three, I can still order like a pro at the kopitiam!”

Ok, we believe you now...

Ronny, who also plays Eddie Cheng in Crazy Rich Asians, sends his well wishes to all Malaysians before ending the interview with a “Malaysia Boleh”.

Chieng, who’s playing Jon Jon in the new superhero movie, will also be joined by actor Simu Liu as Shang-Chi and actress Awkwafina as Katy Chen. 

Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be hitting Malaysian cinemas from October 7th!

Can’t wait!
