What time did you sleep last night?

You can be sure our youths are night owls alright. Nearly half of the respondents (120) sleep after 2am for the reasons we all
know well: assignments and projects. This is the followed by those who hit the sack at midnight (56) and about 1am (42). Only
11 go to bed before 10pm. Some of those in bed before 9pm noted that they were sick or that it was a rare occasion.

What time did you wake up today?

These people rank first in the list of what is most important to youths.
Following that, 16.86% prioritises their studies, career and financial
circumstance while 13.73% of those polled went with religion.
Following that is happiness and marriage with 12.16%. It seems its
true that young people are less concerned about their health because
only 1.57% (thats only four out of the 255) opted for it. There were
about 16.86% other concerns which included their girlfriends and
their piano!

Makan apa?
Apart from the above, there were numerous
others mentioned including futsal, ping-pong,
volleyball, rock-climbing and ice-skating.
Of the 255 youths that were polled, 44 do not
participate in sports at all.

Its not a myth! The staple food for most Malaysians is


indeed rice-based, as 62.12% of those polled in the R.AGE
Project 24 Hrs, can testify to. What is a myth, however, is
the notion that young people only consume fast food. The
survey proved that notion untrue (6.31%).
Participants of the survey were asked what they had for
dinner the night before. Although most answered rice, it is
interesting to note that the beauty of choice is still available when it comes to Malaysian food. While many had
home-cooked food (rice with dishes), many also had the
classic nasi lemak, nasi kandar and chap fan (mixed rice).
The other results include western food in second place
with 9.46% followed by noodles with 8.56%. Instant noodles and mamak food, such as roti canai and thosai, were
minimal with 2.7% and 2.25% respectively. There were several other dishes as well, but many of which weve never
heard of.

Surprisingly, while most stay up late, they wake up early too! 71 are up before 7am while 63 get out of bed between 7am
and 8am. (Now we know why eye products are such a hit!)
On a regular weekday, the waking hours are early. 41 said they wake up at around 8am followed by 25 at around 9am and
21 at around 10am. For some 11 youths, the day start in the afternoon.
Considering the fact that this poll was done during the weekday, one wonders what their sleeping hours are during the
weekends and how they make up for the sleep loss over the week.

Local Holiday Destinations Youths Go To

HOLIDAY!

It seems that Cuti-cuti Malaysia is well and


alive amongst young Malaysians as 65.1%
spent their last holiday in a destination within
the country. Price could be a factor because
the percentage goes lower the further the
destination (read: US$1 = RM3.65 and EURO 1
= RM4.70). South East Asian countries such as
Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia came second with 13.37% while 8.24% visited an Asian
country outside of SEA. About 7.05% travelled
to Western countries such as Europe, Britain or
the United States.
Check out the illustration to see which local
destinations were the pick of the 166 young
people travelled within the country.
