I wish Malaysia had
1) Similar standards of living / quality of life as the UK
2) History and culture as rich as Europe
3) Reliable public transport so that cars and traffic jams are a thing of the past

I wish UK had
1) Malaysia's or Thailand's weather and standard of beaches
2) Bali's standard of holiday resorts and boutique hotels
3) More cafes that opened into the wee hours to cater for post-clubbing

Who's gonna make me a happy camper then, hmm?

Wish my country had curry restaurants like in New Zealand, Red snapper like in Australia, fresh fruits like in Latin America, Caesar Salad Dressing like in North America, Tapas and Wine like in Spain and definitely byo in restaurants.
Yes, I do love good food and at least we have very delicious bread in Germany! And of course I donĀ“t mind travelling to get all the other stuff .

Canada seriously needs some old buildings and sites. There's nature here that's pretty amazing, but not many man made things of great significance.

But then maybe I'm just jaded because I live here. "Home" always seems more boring than "away".

I wish my country is wealthier in money so we can handle garbage, floods and other disasters as well as education etc. well, and most corners and places is safe, clean, no poor and hungry people so they can't be manipulated by bad people (e.g. terrorists) for money and food nor have to go abroad to be servants and get raped.

As in weather, I don't like cold so it's OK :) but I wish we had a season where the leaves get colourful like in autumn. I like the sun but I wish it weren't too hot and so humid. And I wish rain weren't too heavy.

Don't you think it's like an impossible grown-up christmas list

I wish my country had the same passion for the round-ball football (soccer)game that those living in European and South American countries have.

I wish I could go to watch a soccer (football) match here and be treated to the same kind of atmosphere and passion for the game that I witnessed at Boca Juniors and River Plate matches in Buenos Aires.

I wish Germany had:

- the fruit flavoured sparkling spring water that they sell at every Sainsbury's and Tesco's in the UK.

- the freshly packed ready-to-cook vegetables that you simply throw into the microwave in the bag you bought them, available at every supermarket in the UK and the US.

- Tesco's.

My beloved homeland would IMO also profit from a university that offered courses in Muslim theology, so that the muslims here wouldn't have to import religous leaders from elsewhere or go to the middle-east to study islam there.

Besides that I wish Germany's Doner stalls would start offering decent middle-eastern food, namely Falafel, Fuul and Baba Ganoush.

Aside from that, I love Germany.
