    Hokkien? You speak Hokkien?

    Andie : Of course! Chinese in Medan speak Hokkien. In KL, they speak Cantonese, right. I speak a bit of it. πŸ™‚

    You know, I always thought all Indonesians speak only the Indonesian language. How ignorant of me. Yes, people in KL speak Cantonese in public though at home, we speak our own dialect if we are not Cantonese. In Penang, the dialect is Penang Hokkien and in Johore, it’s Johorean Hokkien. These days, Mandarin is widely used too especially in hawker stalls that cater to college students as outstation students may not know the local lingua franca.

    Andie : Well, Chinese language (any dialects) is becoming quite scarce. Even young Chinese are reluctant to speak it anymore. They prefer Indonesian or English. I think you will understand the unsaid here. 😦

    But amazingly, the rise of China as economic power has prompted a lot of people to learn Mandarin, even the non-Chinese. That’s quite impressive, I’d say.
