Can you legally stand in a parking spot and reserve it? No. It’s for vehicles. It’s illegal for you to be there. Under Section 119, those who attempt to “reserve” a parking spot can be fined up to RM2,000 or even six months in jail.



Buying alcohol in Malaysia? Make sure you’re at least 21. This is due to recent changes to the country’s Food Regulations 1985 by the Health Ministry. Failure to comply with any alcohol-related regulation would be an offence and if convicted, one could be fined not more than RM10,000 or imprisonment of up to two years.



Malaysians will have to pay more for cigarettes starting early November. This is due to an increase in taxes under Regulation 8A of the Tobacco Revenue Control Regulations 2004.  Selling of cigarettes to persons under the age of 18 has been forbidden since May 14, 1994. Malaysia became a Party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control on December 15, 2005.
