yeap it is natural way of how languages are form. that is if you study linguistic properly and it is nothing to be ashame of and dont get the guilt just because some of the hyprocrite people criticise you for not speaking "proper English"
you can tell these hyprocrites to walk the talk and speak proper heavy British accent. Dont they know there are weird english accents like texas and NZ accents? Even in UK there are varieties of English as well.
So as Malaysian, it is our identity to be what we are.
dont you know? even foreigners try to speak like us
