British English vs. Malaysian English Who says our English is teruk? Just read below - Ours is simple, short, concise, straight-to-the-point, effective etc. WHEN GIVING A CUSTOMER BAD NEWS Britons: I'm sorry, sir, but we don't seem to have the sweater you want in your size, but if you give me a moment, I can call the other outlets for you. Malaysians: No stock. RETURNING A CALL Britons: Hello, this is John Smith. Did anyone call for me a few moments ago? Malaysians: Hello, who call? ASKING SOMEONE TO MAKE WAY Britons: Excuse me, I would like to get by. Would you please make way? Malaysians: S-kuse me. WHEN ASKING FOR PERMISSION Britons: Excuse me, but do you think it would be possible for me to enter through this door? Malaysians: (pointing at the door) Can ah? WHEN ENTERTAINING Britons: Please make yourself right at home. Malaysians: No need shy shy one lah! WHEN DOUBTING SOMEONE Britons: I don't recall you giving me the money. Malaysians: Where got? WHEN DECLINING AN OFFER Britons: I would prefer not to do that, if you don't mind. Malaysians: Don't want lah. WHEN ASKING SOMEONE TO LOWER THEIR VOICE. Britons: Excuse me, but could you please lower your voice? I'm trying to concentrate over here. Malaysians: Shut up lah! WHEN ASSESSING A TIGHT SITUATION. Britons: We seem to be in a bit of a predicament at the moment. Malaysians: Die lah!! WHEN SOMEONE DID SOMETHING WRONG Britons: This isn't the way to do it. Here, let me show you.. Malaysians: Like that also don't know how to do! WHEN ONE IS ANGRY Britons: Would you mind not disturbing me? Malaysians: Celaka you!
