Not proper English bad Malay

These days I have been working on my wedding website. It will be available in 4 languages: Chinese, English, French and Malay.

I asked an American to review the English writing, and her comment was:" Understandable but not proper English". Then I asked a member from a forum to review the Malay sections for me. She said that "there are too many mistake especially on the sentences part" so she won't be able to correct my mistake.

Well, I welcome sincere comments like this. At least I know that I do not write proper English and my Malay is bad. Luckily my Chinese friend said she understands my Mandarin. She hasn't seen my writing part but I'm not dare to try!

It's so true that one needs to practice a language frequently to be able to keep it. I used to write good Malay, at least according to the Malaysian Examination Board who awarded me "A" in the Malay paper during the STPM (A level equivalent) examination.


  1. Well, for what it's worth, I think you write extremely well in English!

  2. thanks, I will keep on working on it.
