Manglish as they are spoken

And the world thought Manglish is all about punctuating our sentences with "lahs".

" ... Correct, correct, correct, correct, correct. Right, right, right. Correct. Ah. Ah. Right! Susah. You see he has now asked for six Court of Appeal judges, so that he can put his men before he retires.

Correct, correct, correct, ah, and then, ah, ah, correct, correct, correct, correct, correct. ..."

" ... Okay, fine, fine, fine, fine. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Right, okay, okay. Ah. Ah. Correct, correct. ..." (From the Lingam tape transcript)

"... I commend yo-yo-your journalists trying to project… to exaggerate more than what actually happened. That-that-that-that’s it. We are not the-the and I-I congratulate your journalists behaving like an actor, that-that’s it ..."

"... You-you-you-you are here with the idea, you are trying to project, what is your mind! You think that we Pakistan, we are Burma, we are Myanmar. Everything you-you are thinking! ..."

"... Ya ya we are not like you! ..."

"... People do-do… of course they protest. We are allowing them protest, and they have demonstrated. But we just trying to disperse them, and then later they-they-they don’t wanna disperse, but later our police compromise. ..." (From the Zam-Al Jazeera interview transcript)

Let's repeat ourselves one more time - ya ya ya Malaysia boleh boleh boleh boleh boleh !! *.*

The good thing for Zam is that he has now become famous. Everyone is talking and blogging about him. I didn't know who the heck he was before this. :P
