Goodwill Mystery solved?

I got this one from Goodwill store in Beaverton for .99 cents. I would like some help identifying the plush origin. It is a McDonald’s plush made in 1999. It is 6 inches tall not your typical US McDonald’s Happy Meal toy size. The tag is in English. The sailor uniform and book bag suggest ether Hong Kong, or Singapore. If from Asia, how did it end up in a Goodwill in Beaverton Oregon? There is a Dear Daniel companion plush.
Update: One eBay listing say this is from Malaysia McDonald promotion. We do have a growing number of SEA Muslims moving in the area
