By | September 13, 2015

You often see this word being used on Facebook, Twitter and many other social media sites. Find out what it means here.


Whenever I’m on Facebook, I’ll see tons of political related posts on my newsfeed.

Politic is an extremely popular topic in Malaysia right now. If it’s politics then it means it’s government related.

So it’s no surprise that netizens like to refer the government as ‘gomen’. Essentially, it’s short for government.

Doing a quick Google image search ‘gomen Malaysia’ returns the results as shown above. As you can see they are all related to Malaysian politics or government.

So that’s exactly what it means. This is a new vocab that you can use when commenting on Facebook.
