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’
Quite a mysterious street that Jl Banjir. Appears once in a year in almost every city and then – can’t find the address anymore.
Bingun sayang.. Jalan Banjir di Jakarta ya? – I’m confused, honey.. The Banjir street is in Jakarta? OR A street was flooded in Jakarta, right? [The way Ms White hears it]
Tapi di Bandung juga ya – But in Bandung also, right?
Jadi jalan nya dimana mana ya? – So (it seems) that street is everywhere?
