Mbak Bunga: Oh, sayang! Things are getting so much worse! What should we do?

 

                      Mas Trisno: I am at a loss too, saying!  Please don’t look so sad, manis!  There is nothing we can do.  If only our great-great-great-grandfather had not met that night…..

M                      Mas Bambang: Hey! Mengapa sedih? You can tell me, Mas Bambang, the guru!  It must be because of your orang tua right? Aiyah!  Don’t think too much!  Seperti saya! Always happy, that’s why I am always popular with gadis-gadis!

M                      Mas Bambang: Gila..I was whistling at the bird, not at her!  Anyway, I was saying you two should cheer up, must di sini senang, di sana senang!
