By the way, I forgot to mention that Jawi has everything to do with Java (the
Island... @ Malaysia).

Quoting Wikipedia (,_Penang): 
"Jawi is a town on the mainland side of Penang, Malaysia."

And for those who can't go to Wikipedia to check what Jawi is, here is the

"Jawi is a nearly extinct Australian Aboriginal language of Western
Australia, the traditional language of the Jawi people. There are no longer
any known fluent speakers, but there may be some partial speakers."
