Malaysian English At Its Wackiest
No head no tail when confronted with “Let’s cabut”? Unsure of why something will “sure koyak”? Is “so humsup” a compliment or not? Sometimes charming, often witty and always inventive, Malaysian English is a vital part of the colourful Malaysian cultural fabric. Manglish casts a fun, entertaining look at Malaysian English in all its unique, idiosyncratic, rojak glory. Whether you’re a true-blue Malaysian or a fresh-off-the-plane mat salleh, you’ll never be at a loss for words. This classic bestseller includes brand new content, with updated entries as well as new illustrations by prominent Malaysian cartoonist Zunar.
