I have been told, if stays longer with ica, that means they want you here but looking for a slot to fit you in.

There is some logic to that but I'm sure there's a cut off point as well.

But to keep their ratios they will need more Chinese folk, just not from China. :wink:

That should definitely help. If you want Chinese where better to get them than next door. All part of the same country once.

Anecdotal evidence from this forum does seem to suggest that Malaysian Chinese do have an advantage.
