Embarassing

Why do i keep doing this!?

Whenever i see an Asian here in Australia, my brain would automatically think he/she's Malaysian and i would automatically speak with my beloved Malaysian slang. You know, the broken English, with shortened pronounciations and all the "wan", "ma", "la" and "arrrrr".

And since the people in Aust are from all over the world, Asians might be from China, Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, Japan or wherever. Embarassing when i speak to them as if they were Malaysian or Singaporean! They cant understand me

Guess what i did this morning? The security guard at the bookshop is tanned... looks like a Malay. In Malaysia whenever i see a Malay security guard, i would immediately start talking in Malay.

Absentmindedly, thats what i did here in Aust!

Soooooo embarassing. My friends kept laughing at me! The security guard joked at me: asked if i sweared at him. Oh my godddddd

Hope you adapt to the culture and life there. Remember, you are now in Australia and not in Malaysia. When you come back here, you are all Australian and than have to suit the Malaysian style again. It's a bit difficult, but you'll get use to it..lol =)
