I couldn’t sleep although my eyes are so puffy and sleepy. So, might as well just jot down my blog, aite? At this juncture, especially and particularly starting this week; I have been very busy with my school workload (you know when the school is about to curtains down, everything will be compressed within that limited time!) and the Master’s Degree assignments!
So, on Friday; 31st October 2014 (it was Halloween! Unfortunately, no Halloween-themed occasion for me this year! Someone claim gotta work and all. So……..**&^%); each of the groups were asked to give Progress Report for our respective online campaign; so I represented my group to elaborate on our “The Kaya Bread Project”.
Explained about the concept of how the metaphorical correlation between “Kaya Bread” & English Literacy; Kaya is our Malaysian food spread whereas Bread is an English dietary ingredient; when you put them together, it makes a delicious meal; which is in sync with our tagline :-
“Talking in English doesn’t make you less Malaysians.”
It was satisfying to know that at this juncture, our group managed to garner the most LIKES (it was 718 LIKES when I presented the Progress Report but as we speak now, the page managed to get 747 LIKES! Thanks to everyone who supports this!) and appreciations to everyone who have been supporting the page and hopefully, whatever information shared in the page will be able to transpire something to other people, Insya ALLAH. In addition, to receive warm responses from our coursemates were also very encouraging especially when some of them told us that they were interested with the concept and really like the approach we did! So, it was very nice to hear such feedback!
I found out that Malaysians do want to learn English but perhaps sometimes, explanation in Internet or other sources are too lengthy and “academic” AND in English! I guess the idea to grab the attention is to speak the local lingo which is Bahasa Malaysia; and then only one could embroider English into the topic to gauge the attention!
