Been to a friend wedding last Saturday. Most of the guests were foreigners, parents and relatives of the bride who is a Malaysian. So as you might have guessed, most of the speeches were either in mandarin or the malaysian dialects. The only Malay word i retained during the dinner is ‘Yamse’, which after enquiry happens to be ‘toast’ or “a la tienne” in french.
