Malaysia…

Our country, Malaysia is a country with different cultures, races, religions and so on… Besides that, we are also using a wide variety of languages… Aren’t you notice the dialogue below is a very common thing for many Malaysians?

2 students are having their lunch break…
A: Hey… Going for lunch?
B: Yar.. Lets go..
When they reached the restaurant/ cafeteria…
A: Makan apa?
B: Dunno larr… Anything larr
A: Ermm… Chicken rice?
B: Ok.. You go order ler..
A: Eh! I got no small change lar… U belanja me first, ok?
B: Okie… Tomorrow ur turn to belanja me shark fin…
A: Siao arr? Shark fin so expensive…..
……….

From the conversation above, u can notice that, most of the Malaysians use more than 1 language in their dialogues… Malay, English, Mandarin, Hokkien, Hakka... Some even use a combination of Malay/Chinese and English… For example... “baca-ing” or “Ciao-ing”…

Now you can see… Our conversation is such a “Rojak”… Hahaa! It’s a good thing or a bad thing?

*Cheers*
