Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘To the North’

mr n ms white 100_to the north

This one is tricky. In many parts on Indonesia, including Bali, people tend to give you guidelines according to mata angin (cardinal points [eyes of the wind]). Even if you happen to have a map, can you always be sure that the north they are thinking is the north also on your map? So is it straight, left or right?



Pak, kalau mau ke candi nya, ke mana ya?  –  Sir, if (I) want (to go) to that temple, where (should I go)?

Ke utara aja, nanti ke timur  –  Just to the north, then (turn) to the east

Jadi masih lurus, kanan atau ke kiri?  –  So (I still have to go) straight, (turn to the) right or to the left?


Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Barbars’

How do you call barbars in bahasa Indonesia anyway? Orang buruk? (Bad people?) Or is it just a matter of space between the words…



Kamu ingat apa tentang malam kemarin?  –  What* do you remember about last night?

* Mark the word order in Bahasa.

Bar bar Bali saja…  –  Just bars of Bali

Ada barbars di Bali?  –  There are barbars in Bali??
