My other names and tags
My name's abang erfan, pronounced ah·bahng air·fahn, you can call me erfan for short. There are a couple people who call me abang but that's pretty much a... family name? Afaik there isn't a clear analogue between malay malaysian names to the western firstnamelastname format of names. You can also call me kurt since that's the screenname i roll with, and definitely nothing else.
The whole website is pretty much an aboutme so i'd encourage you to go through the other pages if you wanna know more.
I speak a lot more english than malay and sarawakian because of reasons.
Boleh je cakap melayu, klaka swak dpt juak but don't expect me to do nonenglish presentations.
I go by kurt in most online circles because there's less ambiguity in pronunciation.
