My Malaysia at a Glance
Malaysia consists of 13 states and three Federal Territories. Eleven states are on the Peninsular Malaysia and two more are in East Malaysia on the island of Borneo.
Nine states have hereditary Rulers and they called Sultans which are Perlis, Johor, Kedah, Perak, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Terenganu and Kelantan. Out of these state rulers a Supreme Head which is called the Yang di Pertuan Agong is chosen to be the Monarchy once every five year. The Present Yang the Pertuan Agong is from the state of
Terenganu. In the other four states where there are no rulers they are headed by their respective Yang di- Pertua Negeri which is appointed for a stipulated period.
The government is chosen democratically by the people and the head of the government is the Prime Minister.
Average temperatures between 21 C to 32 C. Humidity here is high. The dry season is usually between May to September. The rainy season is between Octobers to February.
Bahasa Malaysia is the national language however English is widely spoken especially in major towns. Other common languages are various Chinese dialects and Tamil.
Islam is the official religion of Malaysia but other religion is practiced freely here.
