    Actually, I think some of my Bhutanese friends are way ahead of them in terms of spelling reform. A couple of examples to hand:

    to ur family safely. here we all r fine n missin all of u.
             thank u very much for the pictures. m praying for the same
    conference to be held sooon so tht all of us can come together
