Malay for Mems
A handbook for the newly arrived European housewife in Malaya. As the book says "There is practically no Grammar in "kitchen" Malay. It is mostly a matter of stringing words together, following the same order as English." As with most such books, their main purpose is to get the housework done, rather than to make casual conversation. Good Paperback Fifth edition. 43 pages.
