    Wow... that's impressing

    btw Malay language is one part of Nusantara (Malay nation included Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore and some part of southern Thailand)

    There's is some difference between Standard Indonesian Language and Standard Malaysian Language...

    PRONOUNS
    I, me = Saya (polite) / Aku (a little bit rude, always saying by man)
    You = Awak (polite), Kamu, Anda (very protocol, ex when with the clients, tv program etc),
    She, Her = Dia (woman)
    He, Him = Dia (man)
    They = Mereka
    We = Kami, Kita
    (the difference between those two are:
    Kami is use when you're representative of a group speak to someone who isn't part of your group,
    Kita when you talk someone that included in the group)
    ex:
    1. one begger (he represent his family) begging one rich man : "Kami sudah dua hari tidak makan apa-apa". (We do not eat anything in these two days) - that rich man doesn't included his family's member.
    2. The coach of football club saying to his players, "Kita mesti menang tahun ini".
    (We must win this year). - He is one part of the club.

    NUMBERS
    1 = satu
    2 = dua
    3 = tiga
    4 = empat
    5 = lima
    6 = enam
    7 = tujuh
    8 = lapan
    9 = sembilan
    10 = sepuluh
    11 = sebelas
    12 = dua belas
    13 = tiga belas
    14 = empat belas
    15 = lima belas
    16 = enam belas
    17 = tujuh belas
    18 = lapan belas
    19 = sembilan belas
    20 = dua puluh
    30 = tiga puluh
    100 = seratus
    200 = dua ratus
    1000 = seribu
    2000 = dua ribu
    1 000 000 = satu juta / sejuta
    10 000 000 = sepuluh juta

    General Greeting and Talks
    Hai= Hi, Hello
    Selamat Pagi = Good morning
    Selamat Tengahari = Good afternoon
    Selamat Malam = Good evening
    Selamat Malam = Good night
    Terima kasih = Thank you

    Yeah that rite.... word such that can make people confuse:
    Bisa in Indonesia is "can do" but in Malay is "poison",
    Kapan in Indonesia "When/while" but in Malay "some cotton that use to cover all dead body before he/she be buried - grief clothes" - also wrote as kafan (from arabic كفن).
    ... and so on

    but we're so HAPPY that can understand each other actually....
