  1. It sounds to me like something having to do with Corona in a language that’s closely related to Indonesian, but I can’t tell which one yet. (I’m not sure why, but I think it’s a language spoken in Indonesia rather than Malaysia, Brunei, or Singapore). I heard “terus wa.”

  2. A shot in the dark. Either something spoken in Indonesia or the Philippines. I THINK I hear sound or two that sounds “Philippinish”.

  3. I think it sounds like a language in Southeast Asia (Malay Peninsula to be exact)!

  4. I say “Philippinish” primarily because of the timbre of the voice That said, I live in Canada and am used to several French accents but other than a few words that could be a creole version of a French word I don’t think it is French at all. I have been known to be wrong, however!Lol

  5. I think any resemblance to French is largely a coincidence (there may be an acronym, and the letter names may ultimately come from French via Dutch for all I know, but other than that, I don’t hear any French at all). I think it’s from either Indonesia or Malaysia (and I’m still leaning towards Indonesia). I doubt it’s from Thailand.
