I met a guy while on vacation in Bali. We were talking things USA when I asked him where he thinks the bamster was born. Without hesitation he said “Jakarta” and gave me a ‘are you stupid?’ look.
“I met a guy while on vacation in Bali.”
Well that seals it.
You probably said, “terima kasih,” an he replied, “oooo, your Indonesian is very lancar (good).”
