I beamed in pride as I watched the comments come in, reflecting multilingual Malaysia. This was a rare occurrence, kind of like when you stumble upon a rare pokemon. Usually, people comment in English because (1) I'm an English teacher, & (2) 90% of the posts I make are in English. That really made my day.
