I don’t know what that means

Jin: Btw I goat
Me: Okay
Me: Only in Malaysia can you say “I goat” and someone replies with “ok”
Jin: Hahaha

Backstory: the word “coming” (in the context of being “on the way”, or “coming over”) is sometimes written as kambing (for no other reason than because it sounds similar), which is the Malay word for goat.

In today’s lessons of phonetics

I learned something new in a daily affirmation room on Clubhouse yesterday (I swear I was the only Asian): people say “grand rising” instead of “good morning”.

“Grand rising, kings and queens!”

Somehow it’s 150% cooler when a black person says it.

When I say it, it just sounds like I’m talking about a Chinese restaurant.
