    Malay speaking Mother and baby group

    I am Malaysian Chinese and my daughter is 11 months old. I would like to meet up with Malaysian/Indonesian mothers who would like their children to speak Malay to form a Malay speaking Mother and baby group. In this group, we will try to speak Malay so that our children will have some exposure of this language. If you are interested, please email me at. Look forward to meeting you! We can go "makan makan"!!

    Hi! I am a Chinese-Indonesian and I am interested in forming a playgroup to masak or makan but I am afraid there are stark differences between the Indonesian and Malay languages.
    Where do you reside?

    Saya berasal dari Kuala Lumpur dan kini tinggal di Belcher's, Jalan Pokfulam. Saudari tinggal di mana? Anak perempuan saya berumur 1 tahun dan 3 minggu. Memang terdapat perbezaan antara Bahasa Indonesia dan Bahasa Malaysia tetapi tidak apa asalkan kita boleh berkomunikasi dan anak kita boleh belajar Bahasa Melayu. Jika saudari berminat, bolehkah saudari e-mel saya? Kita boleh keluar bersama-sama. Terdapat satu restoran Malaysia dekat dengan tempat saya, kita boleh pergi makan nasi lemak and rendang! Selain daripada keluar bersama-sama, mungkin kita boleh mengajar anak kita lagu kanak-kanak dalam Bahasa Melayu, membaca buku cerita dan lain-lain. **** penting sekali ialah, mereka terdedah kepada kawan-kawan **** bertutur dalam bahasa tersebut.

    Saya juga boleh bertutur dalam Bahasa Inggeris, Cina, Kantonis, Hakka dan Hokkien. Saya kurang fasih dalam Bahasa Melayu kerana jarang guna, tetapi saya akan cuba bercakap dalam bahasa ini demi kebaikan anak saya. Saya tak pandai masak tetapi pandai makan.. haha!

    Wow! You really caught me off guard! Had some difficulty understanding, though. My Bahasa Indonesia's not that fantastic. Was sent away to study when young and ended up taking Mandarin as second language. I dun think your Malay is not fluent. In fact, I think it's fluent...at least better than my Indonesian....I speak the pasaran variety to my parents. :)

    Belcher's near the HKU, yah? Is the Malay restaurant you are referring to just below your apartment? Actually I dun quite nasi lemak but am okie with rendang but eating too much can really make me sick. I prefer tahu telur. Like you, I'm only good at eating and lousy at cooking. I live on Bisney Rd...Jalan Bisney..haha

    Are you letting your daughter learn Malay? I dun know if I want my son to learn Indonesian cos my husband's not Indonesian. Besides, my son has not opportunity to speak cos my Indonesian's substandard and his daddy doesn't speak a word. Is your husband's Malaysian?

    You really are a linguist! You must be a Hakka? Am currently not in HK...followed my husband home to visit my in-laws.
