Experimenting with a new concept: Kufic Square (Arabic) + Jawi (Malay) + Mandarin (Chinese). The phrase should read 'Wa Ai Ni' (Wah-Eye-Knee), Mandarin for 'I love you'.

I read Chinese, but I don't get this. Is it Chinese words transliterated into Arabic or what?

It's Mandarin written phonetically into Jawi and arranged into a Square Kufic.

So it reads 'wa ai ni', in Jawi, basically.
