Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Purple’

The trick to say it right is simple – just close your nose or imagine you’ve got a cold. Because the -ng- in word ungu (purple) sounds exactly like that. Try it, and impress your Indonesian friends, by speaking as an orang asli (local)!

Translation:

Makasih, sayang  –  Thank you, honey

Kamu suka bunga warna ungu ya  –  You like a purple [colour] flower, right?

Bunga  –  Flower

Oh, kamu mengucapkan kata ‘ungu’ sudah dengan benar  –  Oh, you pronounce (say) the word ‘ungu’ already correctly

Hanya karena hidung aku tutup…  –  Only because my nose is closed

Dari mana ya?  –  (Where are you) Coming from?
