saya sukakan awak


Explanation:
Casual, between friends : "Saya sukakan awak"

Classical, a proper-sounding translation : "Aku sukakan engkau"

Dramatised, exaggerated as if on stage, a bit emotional : "Ku suka padamu"

In adoration, from an admirer : "Saya minat pada awak"

(That's all I can think of at the moment ...)

Saya suka awak.


Explanation:
Logged in to propose an answer but saw that answers given by Ramona and MMI about covered it all. Oh, BTW, there's a typo in Ramona's answer, the second time. "Saya suakan awak" should be "Saya sukakan awak". Just so you don't go saying the former, which means something else altogether :-)

Good luck Scott.
