KadSaya, Sentuh Dan Pergi
It’s hillarious to read this kind of news in the media, showing that we are too busy with petty issues instead of tackling the big one. Yes, Bahasa Melayu is the national language, so what? Just by changing few terms into Bahasa Melayu, consider as memartabatkan Bahasa Melayu?? What will happen if our government decided to change MyKad to KadSaya or Touch N Go to Sentuh Dan Pergi?
‘Rais said several accepted English terms like MyKad and Touch ‘n Go were being reviewed to be changed into Bahasa.’
In future if you are stopped by the police asking for your identity card, they should carefully phrase their questions, or it will be like this..
Policeman : Boleh saya tengok KadSaya? (Show me the identity card)
A: ???? Kad tuan? Kad tuan kat tuan lah, apa pulak kat saya.
Policeman: (try to rephrase) Boleh saya tengok KadSaya awak?
Hmm, maybe Sentuh Dan Pergi not that bad after all heh?
