SCENE 1

Susan, a British citizen who is looking way to go to Fort A Famosa after visiting
Malacca Zoo.
Susan

Wao ! Malacca zoo is really interesting. Now, I need to go to


Fort A Famosa.
Excuse me, can you tell me the direction to Fort A Famosa ?

Faris

Aaahh, macam mana nak cakap nie ? You go straight, straight


and at traffic light number one , two , three, aah aah at traffic
light number three turn left. There is the port.
( Faris will speak in Kelantenese style)

Susan

Thank you very much.

Faris

Thank you, thank you.


( Susan seem to be lost in Malacca town )

The scene freezes


Narmatha

This is Susan, she is a tourist from Britain. She is here to visit


Malaysia during her holidays. When we dont have language
power, the message cannot be conveyed in a correct manner.
Actually this is how the situation should be.

Susan

Excuse me, can you tell me the direction to Fort A Famosa ?

Faris

Hmm. Wait ah !

Raj crossing the way


Faris

Bro, tolong beritahu dia jalan ke A Famosa tu.

Raj

Hi, you have to go straight and at the third junction turn to your
left. Its there. Along the way you can see signboards that
showing way to Fort A Famosa.

Susan

Thanks to both of you.

Raj

No mention.

Susan successfully reached Fort A Famosa.

Narmatha

Finally, we can avoid these kind of miscommunications by


speaking proper English. Here, this complication occur because
Faris is poor in English language. If we dont know how to
convey the message, we have to seek for help from others.
