Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Karaoke’

Would be interesting to know how strong is the correlation between relative freedom of people and the number of karaoke bars. Anyway, don’t plan a karaoke night a day before your speach (or even date).

Translation:

Pulsa hp kamu habis?  –  (Sounds clumsy, but) Payment of your phone is already finished?

Pulsa  –  Pre-payment of mobiles, internet, electiricity etc in Indonesia

HP  –  common abbr. of handphone

Kenapa kamu texting aja?  –  Why are you just texting?

Bukan pulsa tapi suara aku  –  Not the payment, but my voice

Karena tadi aku karaoke sama kolega  –  Because I had karaoke before with a colleague

Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Makes No Sense’

Some people just have to ask hard questions only when speaking over phone. Even when you are in traffic or shopping. How good are you then to give them a fully analyzed reasonable making-sense answer?

*

Sulit diungkapkan dengan akal pikiran ditelpon  –  It’s difficult to express reasonable thoughts on phone [to reveal thoughts with making sense]

Tapi tadi kamu bilang kamu cinta aku  –  But you just said you love me [actually: said before]

Apakah itu masuk akal?  –  Does it make sense (then)?

Akal  –  reason

Ungkap  –  said [formal]
