Deer's Tongue

[I'm guessing that] the Malay name is a translation from the English. However, a search on 'deer tongue' gives several different plants, each with different scientific names.

Deer tongue grass or Deer tongue panic grass
Scientific name: Panicum clandestinum or Dichanthelium clandestinum

Deer's tongue or Vanilla Leaf or Wild Vanilla
Scientific name: Liatris odoratissima or Trilissia odorata

Deer Tongue Lettuce
Scientific name: Lactuca sativa

Sorry, this is not an answer, just a few guesses.
