    Oh, I see. That was my nickname. My real name is NOORULFAKHRIAH BINTI OTHMAN. Most people don’t know how to pronounce my name correctly. So, I decided to use nickname instead of real name just to make it easier for people to remember my name.

    Oh really? That sounds cool. But pity me. I’m just too late to know about it. Cz it already happened. JB wasn’t far at all. As I stayed at KL(Kuala Lumpur). I’m quite happy that I found a good resources for me to speak better in english. Thanks a lot to both of you. ^_^

    That’s quite a long journey. From Singapore, then Malaysia and up to Thailand. Have you taste the “durian”? It’s known as the “King of the Fruit”. It had a strong smell but when it comes to your mouth it taste good actually. Durian’s are very cheap at penang compared to other state in malaysia. But that isn’t all the time, it selling cheaper. Just on the fruits season only. You better try it dude. 😉

    According to my father penang are also known with their “Nasi Kandar” and etc. I’ve never been there. But my father does. That’s all that I know. I warmly welcome you to come to my country.

    -yaya

  124. Mark White says:

    I thought “Yaya” was an Arabic name. A lot of Arabic-speaking people use this site.

    I was in Malaysia last year. I gave a seminar on interactive stories at the University of Technology in JB.

    About twenty years ago I took a bus from Singapore through Malaysia all the way up to Thailand. I don’t remember much.

    I would like to check out Penang. I have heard the architecture there is really beautiful and the history of the place is fascinating. I think Aaron has been there.

    I want to go to Penang!

  125. yaya says:

    No, there isn’t. I don’t have any friends or relative at Aussie. I often heard that. I’m used to said the word “buddy and babe” for both sex. Oh ok. Then now i’m understand about it. Thanks for explained it to me. Um about this sentences “What new terms are gaining currency in Arabic?”. I don’t understand at all. No, I’m not. I’m pure Malaysian. hahaha. And I’m malay :). I’m just curious, what made you think that i’m arabic actually?

  126. Mark White says:

    How do you use the word “mate”?

    ……It means “friend” or “comrade”. It is used on a ship (shipmate). It is commonly used in Australia and New Zealand and England.

    In the last few decades the range of meaning has extended. It used to refer to men only but now it refers to women as well.

    An interesting tangent…in Australia it has gone from being a male only term to being a unisex term. However the American term “buddy” is rapidly gaining currency in Australia. It is replacing “mate”. It however seems to refer to men only.

    Is anybody in Australia? Have you ever heard a woman refer to her comrades (mates) as “buddy”?

    Language is always changing. It is very interesting.

    What new terms are gaining currency in Arabic? You are a native Arabic speaker, aren’t you?

    I would love to learn your language.

    cheers Mark

  127. yaya says:

    how to use the word “mate”? Is it for female, male or refer to anybody?
