    Do you all face difficulties when back to Malaysia to do your adminstrative things like IC or passports... I always kena scolding by them for been a disgrace that as a Malaysian i cant speak Malay...
    Any of you tried learning Malay? I just attended a basic Malay class, but seems not much of help, maybe i stupid

    cheers-
    Malaysian can not speak Bahasa ? just like Singapore national language is Bahasa, and most of the singaporean can not speak bahasa.

    I dun see any disgrace here.

    I go to do IC, passport, dirivng license and speak English to the government officer in Malaysia. All the Malay officer do not understand what I am saying...and I speak Bahasa that only my Indonesia maid could understand.

    I guess the fast food stall workers has a much better english education level than the government officer.

So I say back to them in Malay, if i can speak Malay, can you speak English?" After that they blur like sotong.....
    if u go to government office to apply IC, passport, license or even to police station to make a report...and if this is your attitude ...I guess u will never get anything done.

    It is not a disgrace for Malaysian not able to speak Bahasa.

    But it will definately a disgrace if u dun know how to pay respect and make fun of other countries national song.

    Hey guys,

    Didn't mean to offend or disrespect anybody's country. Looks like i must be a little bit careful about what I can say in this forum...

    I am very much a Malaysian myself, brought up in a typical Sekolah Kebangsaan. When I first arrived in Singapore, I found it little weird that most Singaporeans don't know what their national song means. But then when I think about it, there are some Malaysians who don't know what their national song means either. They sing like those 2 lines that I quoted. That's all I want to say lah. Jangan mudah tersinggung oke?

    I think there is a certain guideline you should follow and not go over that line.....

    Please do respect other countries National Anthem....

    If you are a Singaporean......your National Anthem is also in Malay.

    If you a Malaysian then you show no respect towards your own soil country

    If you are a foriegner (which I doubt) as you know how to sing Malaysia National Anthem....which is Negaraku, not "naanaalaakoo"

    In CS we are not suppose to talk about politics but there is some faithful Malysian citizen which you could created a flame...no doubt.

    Making fun/jokes about their or other country national anthem cannot be tolerate.

    Thank you.

    haha, talking abt making police report in malaysia. Last year when my EOS 3 was stolen in Batu Pahat i went to make a police report... the officer at the desk speak no english, so lucky my friend was there. But after that i was bring to a plain clothes police office to file the report, he could speak english, he made the report in English for me i think, but all the time he asking me how to spell this and that
    I wonder if the rest of the polices can read or understand the report? Maybe that is the reason that my camera is still not found, they cannot understand the report
    But the most funny part was that the officer at the desk told me that i lose so expensive equipments still so steady, if it was he, he would be crying
    But to me, i really like their attitudes in the work
