Who says our English is teruk? Just read below - Ours is simple, short, concise, straight-to-the-point, effective etc

British English vs. Msian English

Msians : No stock

RETURNING A CALL
Britons : Hello, this is John Smith. Did anyone call for me a few moments ago? 
Msians : Hello, who call?

Msians : S-kew me.

WHEN SOMEONE OFFERS TO PAY 
Britons : Hey! Put your wallet away, this drink is on me
Msians : No need lah

WHEN ASKING FOR PERMISSION
Britons : Excuse me, but do you think it would be possible for me to enter through this door? 
Msians : (pointing at the door) Can ah?

Britons : Please make yourself right at home
Msians : No need shy shy one lah!

WHEN DOUBTING SOMEONE 
Britons : I don't recall you giving me the money
Msians : Where got?

WHEN DECLINING AN OFFER
Britons : I would prefer not to do that, if you don't mind
Msians : Don't want lah

Britons : Err...Tom, I have to stop you there. I understand where you're coming from, but I really have to disagree with what you said about the issue 
Msians : You mad ah?

WHEN ASKING SOMEONE TO LOWER THEIR VOICE
Britons : Excuse me, but could you please lower your voice? I'm trying to concentrate over here
Msians : Shut up lah!

WHEN ASKING SOMEONE IF HE/SHE KNOWS YOU.
Britons : Excuse me, but I noticed you staring at me for sometime. Do I know you?
Msians : See what, see what?

WHEN ASSESSING A TIGHT SITUATION
Britons : We seem to be in a bit of a predicament at the moment.. 
Msians : Die lah!

WHEN TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED
Britons : Will someone tell me what has just happened? 
Msians : What happened ah? Why like that one lah?

WHEN SOMEONE DID SOMETHING WRONG
Britons : This isn't the way to do it. Here, let me show you
Msians : Like that also don't know how to do!

  1. In my worksite most people came from Scotland. For some Indonesian it sounds so strange when in listening, Imagine: They talk "Comes up" sounds like to spell: "camzap" in indonesian action. Especially when you must meet every single words they said within "f*ck", ash...etc. It is big Lol for me.
