Bangladeshis, Indonesians, Nepalis and Myanmese have created mini-societies Worried Malaysians have taken to saying that foreign workers are everywhere in the country. But in reality, the workers prefer to congregate in enclaves creating small replicas of their home societies. Kuala Lumpur and other big cities now boast of a Little India, a Little Indonesia and even a Little Nepal. Brickfields, once a quaint suburb south of the capital transformed into a quarter for new arrivals from India, now has shops with all the comforts of home, from Indian sweets to saris. Every Thursday, Brickfields becomes an open air bazaar where astrologers, palm readers and peddlers all sell their wares. 'We can even get vegetables that are unique to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh,' said Najibullah Khan from Peshawar, who runs a home-based shop selling Pakistani sweets. 'I like Malaysia ... the people are friendly and there are mosques everywhere.' Bangladeshis meet at the Berjaya Complex in the city on Sundays and public holidays. Everything Bangladeshis would conceivably need can be obtained there. The Pudu Plaza, 3km away, is where the Rohingyas - Muslims from Myanmar - work, play and worry. 'We find comfort in living together and helping each other,' said Rahul Hamid, 38, who guts fish at the Pudu market. 'There are so many jobs here and it's easy to earn money. Our dream is to get asylum in Europe,' he said. Despite years of repeated rejection, the Rohingyas, who number about 27,000 in Malaysia, bombard the United Nations Commission on Human Rights office with their applications for asylum. Most Indonesian workers live in ramshackle huts within the construction sites where they work and in squatter settlements on the fringes of towns. Unlike other foreign workers they like to raise chickens and grow their own vegetables. However, the language, culture and religion the Indonesians share with Malays have not helped the foreign workers gain acceptance in society.
