Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Nasi Padang’

I love Padang restaurants. Especially the ones with real Sumatra roots, where you can order nasi Padang (local spicy rice plate) or coffee and tea mixed with egg (kopi telur or teh telur). It doesn’t mean you can mix everything with egg to make it Padang…



Tadi aku sudah ada jus jambu sama telur  –  I already had guava juice with egg before

Tadi  –  before

Bukan dicampur!  –  (It was) Not mixed!

Note: prefix di- forms the passive

Minum jus jambu, lalu makan telur  –  I had a guava juice and ate an egg afterwards [Literally: Drank guava juice, and had [ate] an egg afterwards]



Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Training accident’

For the sake of a good relationship, if good things happen to have small side effects, it’s better to close your eyes.



Hai! Oh, aku pikir aku sudah tahu  –  Hey! Oh, I think I already know

Tahu apa ya?  –  Know what?*

Bagaimana lampu nya rusak kemarin  –  How the lamp broke/got broken yesterday

Pinter kamu!  –  You are smart! [Pinter is a slang version of pintar, and is pronounced more like pintter, whereas pintar sounds more like pintaar]
