Go Stern (Go Stand)

I'm sure you Malaysian out there heard of this word -

"Go stand/gostan etc", which means reverse.

But do you know the real term?

Its Go Stern.

Stern is actually the end part of a ship. To be contrasted with bow, where bow is the front.
"Malaysia: to move backward in a vehicle (informal)" - www.encarta.msn.com.

Note the Malaysia noting in front of the definition, probably only Malaysian called Go Stern as to mean reversing. =)
