Let’s start with the basics. French fries? Nope, they’re ‘chips’ in the land of Brits. 

For us Malaysians, we’re not too particular about what something is called, as long as it tastes good. Not for the Brits, though. They have their own language when it comes to food. It’s not just a name, it’s a way of life. So, when you’re in the UK, remember to ask for some fish and chips and embrace the local lingo. And don’t worry, they’re just as tasty.

Fact #2: A Curry Affair

Worried about eating bland food in the UK? Fear not. The Brits have a spicy obsession with curry. So much so that chicken tikka masala is widely considered to be Britain’s national dish. 

Yes, you read that right.  It’s safe to say that back in the day, the Brits were quite the adventurers and their journeys have left a lasting mark on history. They travelled far and wide, discovering new lands, and – let’s say – acquiring a taste for the local cuisine. Fast forward a few years, and voilà, the British taste buds were forever transformed.

Fact #3: Keep Calm and Carry On

You may have seen the famous “Keep Calm and Carry On” posters, but did you know they were actually created during World War II and were never seen by the public until it reemerged 75 years later? 

These posters were meant to boost morale and remind the Brits to stay calm and resilient during challenging times. Today, you can find all sorts of humorous and creative variations of this iconic phrase.

Fact #4: Quirky Place Names

The UK is also home to some delightfully peculiar place names. Ever heard of the village called “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch”? Yes, that’s a real place, and it holds the record for the longest place name in Europe. Good luck pronouncing it!

Fact #5: Beer Pioneers

Ah, beer. The elixir of British life. The Brits’ long-standing love affair with a good brew is undeniable. They love nothing more than to grab a pint and some pub grub at the end of the day. 

When it comes to brews, the Brits have a rich history and a deep appreciation for their ales. Stout, a dark and robust beer, originated in the 18th century and quickly gained popularity as a hearty and satisfying beverage. 

Legend has it that it was initially brewed to be stronger and bolder than other beers, making it the drink of choice for hardworking folks seeking a robust flavour to match their unwavering spirit.
