Maula (마우라)

Maula was invented by Mohd Badrul bin Salleh, a Malaysian student who is keen on adopting the writing system of classical and modern languages to write Malay. Maula consists of Korean alphabet, Hangul with the addition of Chinese characters to represent sounds that do not exist in Korean. He got this idea while studying Korean at the university and he found out that it helped him in writing and reading Korean.
