I was reading few article and discussion about the RFC 4646 standard. RFC 4646 is a standard tags for Identifying Languages. There is some confusion where by code my is for myanmar.

and Bahasa malaysia language subtag supposed
Type: language
Subtag: ms
Description: Malay
Added: 2005-10-16
Suppress-Script: Latn

For Region it's goes like this for Myanmar
Type: region
Subtag: MM

and here is for Malaysia
Type: region
Subtag: MY
Description: Malaysia

> ms-MY (Malaysia)
> my-MM (Myanmar)

The subtag registry published as of 2007-09-05 is used for validation.

* 'ms-MY' is well-formed and valid.

Primary Language Subtag
ms (Malay)
Region Subtag
