manglish

we can't escape the fact that we speak Manglish (Malaysian English) in our daily conversation. now my little ziyi has made herself comfortable with using words like 'LAHs' and 'WANs'. 

her favourite lines are : 
Why like this wan lah? 
Don't want lah! 
My one
Your one

i'm trying my very best to speak proper English with her but i realised she learned most of her Manglish from others especially in school & other family members. i have even heard from a relative saying that she purposely send her kids to Cambridge English learning center to learn proper English to avoid her kids speaking with all the 'lahs and wans'. 

i hope ziyi would outgrow her Manglish once we make the big move to overseas one day.
