Lawak Bodoh

Why Dr. Mahathir insists on using English for math and science. Because globally people use the language as information and/or technology language at this moment. How dangerous it is if we were to use these words in Bahasa, especially in schools. See example below.

hardware = barangkeras
software = baranglembut
joystick = batang gembira
plug and play = cucuk dan main
port = lubang
server = pelayan
client = pelanggan

Try to translate this:

ENGLISH :
“That server gives a plug and play service to the clients using either
hardware or software joystick. The joystick goes into the port of the
client.”

BAHASA :
“Pelayan itu memberi pelanggannya layanan
cucuk dan main dengan menggunakan batang gembira jenis keras atau
lembut. Batang gembira itu dimasukkan ke dalam lubang pelanggan.”
