Terima Kasih

My german friend asked me how do we Malaysians say Thank you?
I replied 'Terima Kasih'.
He had no problem to pronounce it correctly.
I then explained to him,
that I do not really know how our ancestors came up with that phrase.

But I personally think Terima Kasih has really a beautiful meaning.
If you translate, terima is receive and kasih has something to with love, admiration and/or affection.
Putting them together you will get 'i have received love'.
That totally makes sense,
So basically, you are thankful that someone has shown love/admiration/affection (to you).

That was what I told him,
Our ancestors might have different interpretations,
Either way, its beauty lies there.
