My BM Sucking

It has been quite a while since I've spoken Malay. So much so that..

(At a mamak stall)

Ben: Eh bro, air kelapa satu.

Waiter: Apa?

Ben: Air kelapa.

Waiter: Apa?

Ben: Coconut!

Waiter: .. air kelapa?

Ben: Ya. ...

even my english is much more decipherable to the local malay-speaking mamaks.

It was only till today I realised that I have stopped speaking BM ever since I moved here from East Malaysia 2 years ago. I miss having Malay friends.. or acquaintances for that matter.
