Internet Down, More Words

The internet at our apartment has been down all day, an unusual occurrence. Perhaps our months of government criticism have finally hit home. OK, probably not, it’s probably just broken.

So, we only have time for a quick update today, as we have to write from JM’s office. Here’s a couple more silly words I came across reading the newspaper in the past couple of days.

denggi Worse than malaria, and no vaccination available
francaisi Someone who has a francais
kem Concentration, Boy Scout, or Hill, Pennsylvania
renjer An elite Army soldier (in the US and Malaysia)
skru Persistent speculation on your currency tightens these on your economy
tayar The things on the car that make contact with the road
