Pasta Gigi

I went to a pharmacy to buy some toothpaste.

What are you looking for?
Ubat gigi.
Huh?
Ubat gigi.
Ah, obat gigi.

Oh yeah, that’s right, they say obat not ubat here.

The worker took me to the chemist area and asked me a bunch of questions that one wouldn’t ask when talking about toothpaste.

Um… toothpaste, ada?
Oh! Pasta gigi!
Maaf, saya dari Malaysia, di Malaysia kami cakap ‘ubat gigi’.
Di Malaysia, namanya ubat gigi?
Ya.
