I discovered this workbook in my house when I visited Malaysia over the summer. It is a workbook I had written in the Arabic script.
Bahasa-Malaysia, the official language, has its roots in Arabic script and Sanskrit. At part of my schooling, one of the options I had was to learn the Arabic script.
As I look at it, memories come back of how much I actually enjoyed learning the script, because it is phonetical. I was very proud of myself and found that the writing came easily to me.
The script is written right-to-left, so the book would be in reverse order from something in the Romanized script.
