Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Say It Again!’

mr n ms white 99

Sorry for being away for a while. Since I happened to drop my mobile phone and couldn’t use the application to create new comics, it was time to learn to do it in more proper way. Here’s a scene from Ubud market that Ms White happened to visit these days.

Translation:

Ibu mau ke mana ya?  –  Where are you going, miss?

Ibu, bu  –  mother, but also commonly used for any lady, mostly elder, but not necessarily

Tapi ibu sudah bilang ‘mari, bu’ …  –  But you (Mrs) already said farewell

Mari…  –  Let’s go! (also: Mari, yuk!) An informal way to send someone to the road or greet someone on track, e.g when hiking

Bukan ‘mari, bu’, tapi lima ribu lagi, bu!  –  Not a farewell, but ‘five thousand more’

Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Ripped Jeans’

A rare occasion to be present at birth of a new term, invented by Ms White: celana gemesh. The term goes for all kind of sexy trousers, long or short, especially for ripped jeans, and especially especially for short ripped jeans that have pockets longer than the leggings of the jeans themselves. No need to be Selena Gomez to be hot.

Translation:

Kejutan! Aku beli celana gemesh  –  Surprise! I bought gemesh trousers

Oh, kamu beli CD Selena Gomez?  –  Oh, you bought Selena Gomez’ CD?

Bukan! Aku beli celana yang bikin kamu gemesh  –  No! I bought trousers that make you (feel) gemesh

Gemesh  –  A strong burst of cuteness, which makes you hugging and acting like you had just seen a puppy (or whatever you like so much)
