This was given to me by Ru and Lesley some years ago.They were the spouse's former students(thank you for the photo Irene)who went on a tour of South East Asia after graduation. This handbook was given to them by a relative and we spent many hours laughing at the contents. I also found it useful when I wanted the spouse to get on with his chores! I would command "SEE-ap MA-kan. SA-poo LAN-ty. CHOO-chee BY-by" and other useful sentences to get men working.
Ru the Radical added this to the glossary.
And this was found on the inside back cover.And we all love you too, dear Mande, who ever and where ever you are.
TRANSLATION INTO BAZAAR or BIZARRE ENGLISH of the above:
It has been two weeks, very much sick. Got no fever, hot or cold. But head aches and also cough, cough a lot. Head so heavy like iron.
Today, feel little good.
But can only write easy stuff to make people laugh - those crazy enough to read this blog.
Now, this Malay woman very tired and vacant in the head. I am yawning.Must go sleep.
ON COMMANDS : Get the meal ready. Sweep the floor. Clean it carefully. Chop chop!
