Bing

Dinner conversation today was brought to u by the word "Bing". For those who don't know "Bing" is Kelantanese for "Ice". Apparently the Chinese settled in Kelantan long before the other Chinese that worked the tin mines came to Malaya. Along the way I guess A few Chinese words made it into the mainstream. A few other Chinese words made it to the Kelantanese vocabulary but I don't know any...my Kelantanese isn't very good. I wonder how many other Malay words came from the Chinese?
