Saya Bahasa Indonesia

"Here" means the same thing as "left" (kiri)

That, that one, them, and those all are translated as "itu"

There are no words for introspection, devotion, courtesy, nor ironically... ignorance

"Clean" and "sanitary" mean the exact same thing. The meat I was served that was sitting out for 4 days was "clean", but not "clean" enough to give me a break from the commode for the following 4 days.

The word Sun literally translated means "day killer" (matahari) What? I wish somebody would explain "itu" (that one).

The word for hospital means "sick room" (rumah sakit)

The word for pain means the same thing as "sick" or "sore" or "ache" (sakit) So maybe hospital really means "room of all of the above". Who knows.

The word for "lighter" is the same for "matches" (korek) NO way on earth to ask for one or the other without a small game of charades.

The word for dookie literally translated means big water. (air besar) Now that makes since after the "clean" meat I ate.

Beer is "bir" but tastes like piss (pipis) which gives a bad hangover after just two...and hangover is "mabok" which also means "drunk" as the Indonesian "Bir Bintang" (Star Beer) was voted the worst in the world and I second that.

The worst insult you can give somebody is "rupamu" which means your face

The word for "parent" means "old person" (orang tua) and "Orangutan" is an Orangutan which means "jungle person".

Now if anybody asks me ever again why I don't want to learn Indonesian, I will refer them to this webpage.

Cool, green light, I'm late...

What were my odds in the set w/ an open ender hand...I need to check that when I get back home...60% or 70%...not sure...I wanna check that.

These kids are way too loud...I'm gonna yell at them about as loud as I can...Haha...look at their faces.

Sure is alot of smog today...what a shame...such a beautiful land.

Maybe I shouldn't have scolded my assistant. She's nice, but weired...seems like she's use to it...I'm gonna be nicer to her...

Am I hungry? Nah, beer'd be nice though...ain't had a beer in over a week seems, that'll hit the spot.

A thousand confirmed cases of this swine flu...is that one in 10 million or 100 million...?

I wonder how much this grape fruit cost...it's pretty big

That was a sweet hand this morning with the AA and those 2 other players all in pre-flop, glad I re-buyed.

Why are Bandung people so dumb...Is it just me...nope...they really are almost retarded. Look at that guy...

I haven't had a lucid dream in a long time...wonder why not
