With the rise of AI devices capable of curating creative content and even having conversations with users, you’ve probably been curious about just how much the tool can accomplish.

Apparently, what it lacks in terms of credibility is made up for by its ability to come up with substantially witty and almost rational remarks, such as when requested by a Malaysian Reddit user to list domestic states and point out which ones in the USA were most similar.

The results didn’t disappoint, and ChatGPT even came up with explanations to back up each answer! Check out the list here:

Known for its modern skyscrapers, shopping centres, and vibrant nightlife. One US city that shares some similarities with Kuala Lumpur is New York City, which is also a bustling metropolis known for its iconic skyline, world-class shopping, and vibrant entertainment scene.

Other Redditors also asked ChatGPT for its thoughts on Putrajaya, so that nobody gets left out:

Putrajaya – Washington, D.C. of  Malaysia.

One US city that shares some similarities with Putrajaya is Washington, D.C., which is also a planned city and serves as the administrative capital of the US.

Albeit concise, these answers are definitely interesting, coming from an AI chatbot.

Unfortunately, it seemed to have missed out Terengganu, but netizens have claimed that it’s our very own Mississippi – conservative, with residents who possess a background of high education.

Well, if you couldn’t find a reason to romanticise your life in Malaysia, you could draw some inspiration from this list. I, personally, will be welcoming tourists to the ‘California of Malaysia’ when I spot them around my area!
