Esperanto in Malaysia?

Last night I got an IM via meebo from one Raquel who is also learning Esperanto and wants to come to Malaysia in the summer with her boyfriend for work. Well, good luck to both of you with that. As I've stated on friendfeed, I don't know how useful Esperanto would be in Malaysia (a search of Esperanto Malaysia has my blog in the top 10 - that is never a good sign :p ), but from your IM I think you'd have no trouble communicating with English speakers here at least.

Anyway, this got me to think about what is the state of Esperanto in Malaysia? Are there people using it? How many? And where? Is there some sort of online presence I could go to? Or even a real brick-and-mortar type thing where people gather? I need to look into this.

Also, I managed to (finally!) do lesson 7 at lernu! so without further ado:

  • loĝi = live

  • scii = know, know how

  • do = therefore

  • du-lita ĉambro = two-bed room

  • kvin-lita ĉambro = five-bed room

  • apud = next to

  • manĝejo = dining hall/cafeteria

  • duŝejo = shower

  • necesejo = toilet

  • tie = there

  • kiam = when

  • tiam = then

  • matenmango = breakfast

  • tagmanĝo = lunch

  • vespermanĝo = supper

  • nomŝildo = badge

  • programo = programme

  • mateno = morning

  • tago = day

  • vespero = evening

  • sur = on, upon

  • jen = here is



  • Kie vi volas loĝi? = Where do you want to live?

  • Mi ne scias = I don't know

  • Ĉu vi volas loĝi en amaslĝejo aŭ en ĉambro? = Do you want to stay is a 'mass lodging' or in a room?

  • Ne gravas por mi = Doesn't matter to me

  • Jen via ŝlosilo  = Here is your key

  • Kie estas …? = Where is …?

  • Jen mapo por vi. = Here is a map for you.

  • Kiam estos …? = When will … be?

  • Je la Xa horo = At X o'clock


Yes, I am still very far away from being able to actually write in Esperanto.

Saluton!

You can use the search tool in Lernu to find people from Malaysia:

I found this in the Wikipedia in Esperanto: "En Malajzio estas Malajzia Esperanto-Asocio fondita en 1989."

and then this in a chinese site:

"Malajzia Esperanto-Asocio (1989): p/a Raja Zainal Abidin bin Zahid, 71 Jalan Setiakasih, Bukit Damansara, MY-50490 Kuala Lumpur; retposhto: malaysiaesperanto@hotmail.com. "
