It is sad that there are still people who don’t recognize that Malay is our National Language. And worse still, they insist the minorities should learn Mandarin instead of the majority picking up the National Language.
It is also sad that there are some foreigners who don’t want to learn English.
I went to Tang Tea House for lunch just now. These days even Halal food outlets employ PRC. There was this waitress. She spoke with a Mainland accent. But what struck me was that she made the effort to learn Malay and took my order in Malay.
I am a very happy customer. I patronize Tang Tea House because they trained their staff very well especially the foreigners.
