"Rojak" Language

from Wikipedia : Rojak is a fruit and vegetable salad dish commonly found in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia (where it is called Rujak). The term "Rojak" is Malay for mixture, is also used as a colloquial expression for an eclectic mix, and in particular is often used to describe the multi-ethnic character of Malaysian and Singaporean society.

There's no one to blame but myself *hiks* :)

Lil Cavan language is at times "rojak" hehehehe....Why? coz when he speaks he throws in either english, cantonese, hokkien and malay all into one sentence!!

For example to name a few :
(1) Daddy, you oi ng oi eat ah? ~ Daddy, do you want to eat?
(2) Mummy you see this one pecah already! ~ Mummy, you see this one broken already
(3) You see, the boy boh cheng sa ~ You see, the boy is naked
(4) My nose got pei tai ~ My nose got mucus

Not to mention he even put in those slang of ah, la, woh, hor and now recent slang is eh?? and thus he goes "Where is my ball eh?"

Time for a re-check when I speak eh??!!
