Product Description:

Die! I forgot her birthday!

He tried to sabo me!

Got discount-ah?

Relek-lah brudder

Barsket! Your grandfather''s road-ah?!

You are bombarded with these lively expressions in Malaysia every day. In the street. In the office. At home. Charming, funny, occasionally embarrassing, but always colourful. This is Malaysian English, or Manglish, at its delightful best!

Manglish is the way Malaysians speak when they get together and want to connect with each other. Or when they want to just hang loose and forget about tenses, grammar and pronunciation. Most of all, like a delicious glass of teh tarik or a lip-smacking mouthful of durian, to speak Manglish is to be uniquely Malaysian.

"Manglish: Malaysian English at its Wackiest!" is an entertaining, fun-filled compilation of some of the most commonly used words and expressions in Malaysian English. Whether you''re a true blue Malaysian or a fresh-off-the-plane Mat Salleh (i.e. Westerner) visiting Malaysia for the first time, with Manglish, you''ll never again be at a loss for words when conversing with Malaysians!
