The title of this entry is the headline in Berita Harian the local Malay Daily
It means ‘Dollah enter hospital after difficulty breathing during match’
We hope the former national player will be fine.
Pak Dollah was known as the Raja Gelek
Raja = King and Gelek = twist
So he dribbles the football with good twisting skills in the field.
There are a few Malay words in Straits Times over the week end.
Gila = mad
the word is also used by Leon Tan in TA7 to form a sentence in relation to adik younger sibling.
Mad in this context is crazy used by Hosain Leong on creating gila lines in his stand-up comedy
Two more words were berseru and bersatu
satu is one > bersatu is to unite
seru is to say out loud > berseru is to utter with might
Both are found in the National Anthem Majulah Singapura
Maju = move forward or progress; lah- = emphatic marker
Someone interviewed in The Sunday Times thought majulah was a *lion
