3. Malaysian Cleaner Auntie in KL Mosque is Multilingual and Has 30 Years of Tour Guide Experience
Malaysia is filled with many Multi-lingual individuals because of our rich culture and multi-racial Malaysians. This would mean that there is a possibility for someone to be multi-racial and multi-lingual, but this story is nothing like that.
On the 23rd of August of 2022, a Malaysian cleaner auntie surprised her countrymen when a video of her speaking fluent Japanese in a mosque in KL went viral on social media.
Tour guide for thirty years
In an interview with Harian Metro, Kak Ning claimed that after 30 years as a tour guide, she decided to move to cleaning the National Mosque due to the epidemic and the closing of the borders. She is undoubtedly picking up new skills as she switches from being an experienced tour guide to a cleaner.
Her prior position required her to take visitors to the National Mosque, but she now works where she used to frequently go when she worked as a tour guide.
The National Mosque: Why? Kak Ning offers two very straightforward and sensible explanations for this: her husband and the tourists.
Kak Ning’s ability to visit her other half every day, who also works as a cleaner at the National Mosque, has been made simpler by her job there.
She is fluent in five languages.
Kak Ning’s proficiency in English and Japanese is enough to astound her fellow Malaysians, but many may not be aware that the 59-year-old auntie also speaks German and Arabic well.
In 1990, she began taking language courses to improve her fluency, beginning with the English language, and soon after that, she began working as a tour guide.
Kak Ning’s job as a tour guide required her to interact with travellers from many nations. Although learning a foreign language is never simple, Kak Ning had never let that stop her from trying. One year later, she began studying Japanese.
Kak Ning noted that despite the change in her line of work, she continues to work as a tour guide on the weekends. Kak Ning doesn’t use her advanced age as an excuse for doing less labour.
