Official But Not Prefered

Everyone (perhaps everyone in the world) knows that Malaysia's official language is Bahasa Melayu or Bahasa Malaysia. But, the most prefered language for communication, especially in a more formal setup) is English. Even my friend in Indonesia was surprised when I told him that we conduct our meeting (internally, no Mat Salleh or expats) in English.

Even in a not so formal setup, English is still a prefered language for people of all walks of life!

Wonder what people from Northern states call a sharpener? It's 'gerumit'... derived from 'groom it'... :-)
