Ipoh, Perak Darul Ridzuan, Malaysia

At the heart of Kinta Valley. The capital city of the state of Perak. An opposition stronghold. Factory of brilliant people. Desolated through emigration of its inhabitants to other parts of the country and overseas. Yet... it is forever remembered by its people.

Today's french lesson.. learnt about numbers, n daily conversation, such as where do u live, when did u born, what is ur telephone number? what is ur occupation bla bla.. Sigh! The numbers are quite difficult, if compare with Deutsch and Italiano... This is because: i) u need to know how to pronouce; ii) for the order of 20,30,40,50,60 and 80, every increment (+1, +2 et cetera) is added with 1 only, while increment in 70 and 90 have to be added with 11, 12, etc (See example below); and iii) for every increment in 80' and 90', the way of saying should be (4*20+n, where n=1, 2, etc).. Haha..all these numbers make my life miserable...

0: zéro; 1: un; 2:deux; 3:trois; 4:quatre; 5:cinq; 6:six; 7:sept; 8:huit; 9:neuf; 10:dix; 11:onze; 12:douze; 13:treize; 14:quatorze; 15:quinze; 16: seize; 17:dix-sept; 18: dix-huit; 19: dix-neuf;
