A1. From Q1 it’s name is “@aanggini: Tempe!”
A3. Dong… dong… dong… I am “@febyanisaa: A gong”
A4. I am “@LasmaMikha: a Kris”. In English “keris” is written “kris”, this can be checked on most online dictionaries :). Re A4, and sometimes it has to be capital K so it’s “Kris”.
A5. Most got me right, but not quite on how you write it in English, I am an “@rossioktaviani: Orangutan” or orang-utan
Thank you so much fellas for your participation! :D More information on the words today, check https://englishtips4u.com/2014/05/12/engtrivia-english-indonesian/ … :D
