English vs Ingrish


Question (1):
Rewrite the following passage using your own words:

“Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after”

The answer sheet, in grandiloquent English of a MCE student in the 70's may appear something like this.........

.............and from our present day SPM student, here's what we may get to read, English in it's evolved state ..a dramatic language we Malaysians are all so familiar with......

The Malaysian 'Ingrish' language comprehensible to all Malaysians! "Lets' celebrate and toast to the success of our Bolehland Edu system!...cheers!!!"
