--> Mentality oh Mentality

as-salam

"Kau ni poyo la cakap English"

"Sekolah kat kampung, ada hati nak speaking"

"Cakap BM sudah..."

"Jangan nak berlagak boleh tak? Sengal!"

I've always got these sorts of comments during my high school time, and maybe you were in my shoes as well? Mentality of Malaysians needs to be reconstructed people! We are not using English because we are trying to act like a Mat Salleh and stuff but...please bare in mind, using English in our daily conversation brings nothing wrong. I'm still using Bahasa Melayu and even Northern slang!

"Hangpa nak pi mana tu?"

"Hang ni pelik betoi"

"Lapaq gila dok lari pi ligan bola tadi"

"Gerek hang kena curi ka?"

And to be surprised, people around me still bother with this issue. I'm a TESL student of IPBA and can you believe that there are TESLians who have this kind of mentality? They don't like people talking and using English within Malay group. Hmm..what a pity!

If anybody is happened to read this short entry, please voice your comment. Oh ya!, I was inspired to come up with this after watching Anwar Hadi's videos. Bing it on YouTube people. Oh yeah, he's great!

And this is Anwar Hadi's blog

Just for laugh...itu pun kalau nak gelak la kan...

Hope you get it...till then, that is how
