I was asked by atanliar why I do not write in Bahasa and why do Malaysians have to use bahasa Inggeris untuk berkomunikasi diantara satu sama lain.
The language I write in is the product of my education. English was the medium of instruction while I was at school.
As for communicating with other Malaysians......80 percent of those that read what I write are from Malaysia.
Atanliar writes in Bahasa - according to Google he has 8 followers and 4,196 views.
I write in English and according to Google I have 157 followers and 10,575,742 views.
Simple answer...When you write in English it reaches more people than Bahasa and I would like what I write to be read by as many people as possible....that is why I prefer to write in English. Can I write in Bahasa? Yes I can and I will if the occasion demands that I do so.
atanliar.......kelemahan bersuara dalam Bahasa adalah suatu fenomena yang aneh di negara kita. Mengapa tuan tak tulis dalam BM ? Mengapa rakyat Malaysia perlu menggunakan bahasa Inggeris untuk berkomunikasi diantatra satu sama lain.
