British English vs Malaysian English

oleh kerana ada yang dah menegur .. maka terpaksalah buka cerita... bukan pasal apa... ada juga dapat text yang lebih kurang tegurnya macam tu... radio jelah yang aku leh dengar time mengadap jalan yang sesak dari BP ke PR.... citernya aku jarang lah dengar mix... memang manjang dengar hitz... tapi kadang kadang gotcha call tu aku tak leh terima.. dah aku juga tak suka brother love dekat xfm... maka tinggal la mix.. len lah duk jb leh dengar 95.0, 93.3 dan yang sewaktu dengannya.. tu pun sebelah pagi biasa aku dengar 63.9 masa kat jb dulu.. sebab news dalam Nihongo(Bahasa jepun).... topik dia pasal kita punya broken english (ye aku bukan kisah sangat student ke, kawan kawan dengan broken English.. sebab aku pun masih nak betulkan gammar aku... kalau ada confident cakap tak semestinya betul ye tak) so bawah ni ada sikit snippet yang aku jumpa dan kebetulan lebih kurang..... + yang orang call cerita tu tak reti ah nak citer balik... but worth laughing... memang terbaek topik ni...
