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.
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’
I love those frozen faces from video calls, they are more real than any official passport picture can be.
Foto paspor baru ini dari mana? – Where did you get this new passport photo? (Actually, Where does this new passport photo come from?)
Sedikit aneh ya… – A bit strange, isn’t it
Itu begitu karena ini saat frozen dari Skype call kita – It looks like that because it’s a frozen moment from our Skype call 🙂
