Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘MBA’

It’s obvious the two friends were speaking about different subjects. *’Mba’ is a friendly informal term for unmarried women in Indonesia (as ‘Mas’ goes for men). I wonder, why do they call foreign men a ‘Mister’ …?

*

Kamu punya Mba? – Do you have Mba?

Iya – Yes

Bagus… Dari Harvard? – Nice… From Harvard?

Bukan… Mba dari Indonesia! – No! Mba/girl from Indonesia!
