Malacca Fesyen et al


Say fesyen

Fesyen for fashion, tekstil for textile, farmasi for pharmacy, restoran for restaurant and rezab for reserved (my favorite), are some examples of Malay words loaned from English.


Say restoran

The spelling resulted from how they are actually pronounced in Malay, I suppose. Truth is, the simplicity of how you say it, how you write it spelling (with minimum number of alphabet letters) made those loan words very straightforward to use by Malay writers than their English versions by English writers.


Say farmasi


It’s rezab parking, get it?



See the fesyen guy inside?
