I saw this notice at a checkout counter in a prominent hypermarket store. Is this a reflection of our standand and command of English in the country?

Hi Bob,

Hmm...never thought of that before, as my English (Manglish?) is not that hebat anyway.

Hi Israel,
Maybe it's direct translation from Mandarin, but it contained Malay spelling as well (sistem)! :-)

So 1Malaysia in the making?
