That One Time I Met a Korean Guy Who Can Speak Bahasa Melayu

By Farah - Friday, January 29, 2021

I wrote this post few months ago but just felt like posting it right now :) 

I didn't usually make a lot of small talks with our guests during check in process because I had to complete the entire check in process in 7 minutes. However, I did make exceptions sometimes depending on the lines, the crowd and the guests themselves.

Anyway, back in November 2019 I believe, I checked in this one Korean guy. He was so friendly and talkative during the entire check in process. I was busy keying in his details in our system when he suddenly and randomly started to talk in Malay.

"Saya orang Korea. Saya suka dan cinta Malaysia."

I replied, while chuckling, "Oh ya ke? Terima kasih."

"Malaysia negara kedua saya. Saya rindu Malaysia. Saya datang ke sini selepas 6 tahun. Bahasa Melayu saya okay tak?"

"Okay je. Bolehlah faham. Where did you learn Malay language?"


"Saya kerja di sini dulu. Saya juga belajar melalui YouTube. Saya datang sini selepas 6 tahun sebab saya rindu. Malaysia masih macam dulu. Ada perubahan tapi tak banyak sangat. Saya sedih sebab ada barang yang sudah mahal. Macam bilik awak. Mahal. Duit saya habis."

I lol'd so hard when he said that our rate is expensive because I kinda agreed with him. Especially if you're buying the 3 hours or 6 hours package.

"Saya suka durian. Saya suka Terengganu. Banyak pulau cantik. Saya tak nak balik Korea. Saya mahu duduk sini ㅠㅠ."

I didn't know how to respond to his antics, so I just smiled.

Hello Gorgeous

Suddenly, he said something.

"Saya qwertyuuiop."

"Pardon?"

"Saya qwertyuuiop."

"Sorry, tak faham."

"Saya abang sado!"


Again, I lol'd so hard that my colleagues were giving me an eyes. According to them, they have never seen me laughing like a crazy person, Thankfully, there was no people around. Otherwise, they might think that I'm crazy as well.

"Saya sado tak?"

I just smiled and asked him, "Mana belajar perkataan sado ni?"

"Kawan saya ajar."

Anyway, that was a gist of things that happened at the time. I thoroughly enjoyed our short encounter and conversation because honestly, it was crazy amusing and funny.

May I also add that at one point, he shyly shared with me on what's he doing as a passion project. He runs a YouTube channel on anything Malaysia.

As per what he said, "Saya ada YouTube channel tapi saya tak famous. Orang tak tahu pasal channel saya." 

I honestly, have never heard of his channel before but I did go to his channel once in a while after that. I think his subscribers has increased more than 10k than before.


Tak famous konon! 😛

    1. The abang sado part was really funny to me as well. Back then, I just learned what is abang sado few weeks prior to my encounter with him. Nasib faham. Kalau tak faham, lagi kelakar sebab orang Korea lagi tahu dari orang Malaysia ni.

      I rather not to put his channel name here, tapi kalau nak tahu sangat-sangat, boleh pm tepi. Hiks :D

    1. Kita tak melting sebab tak faham sangat apa dia cakap mula-mula. Kena ulang banyak kali baru faham. Hahahahaha :D

    1. Indeed, he was very friendly and really, he was excited sebab dapat datang balik Malaysia. Asyik cakap tak nak balik Korea dan nak stay dekat Malaysia je.
