For those who want to know more:
As can be seen above the 12 months of the year are all borrowed from English with adaptations to their spelling.
Thus "March" is spelt Mac because "ch" in all Malay words are replaced with just the letter "c" though the pronunciation remains that of "ch" (as in "chair").
There is another meaning for bulan, apart from "month". It also means the moon.
