In Melaka - one of the oldest towns in Malaysia, you can take a boat tour of the town, and the guide there (who has been doing the riverboat tour for over 40 years) has learnt to say thank you, see you again in about 160 different languages.... it is amazing hearing him to say: in English, goodbye, in French au revoir, in German,.....in Chinese.... etc etc he knows it all off by heartt and he says it every time!
