Bryan: Do you know what? I was in a cab and driver just couldn't stop picking his nose and scratching his bare feet while driving. It was so nasty.
Alisa: Ha-ha. The situation would be much better in Malaysia.
Bryan: Why?
Alisa: According to a news report I read in The China Post, Malaysian authorities have ordered cab drivers to pull up their socks and dress properly to more or less improve the country's image.
Bryan: What if the drivers fail to follows the rules?
Alisa: They will be fined by up to US$87, and they only earn about $20 a day.
