Thank you for your answers, fellas!! Now I will be sharing the quickest and right ones :)



A1. From Q1 it’s name is “@aanggini: Tempe!”


A2. Wow, so no one really knows me? I am a “@febyanisaa: Cockatoo”. I am in this nursery rhyme :) “@kaiyeolpls: burung kakaktua hinggap di jendela nenek sudah tua giginya tinggal duaaa”


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

Bornean orang-utan (Pongo pygmaeus); Tanjung Puting National Park, South Kalimantan (K. Selatan), Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo), Indonesia

@Miss_Qiak: Thanks. I didn’t know it is written so in English. ;) “@EnglishTips4U: A4. In English “keris” is written “kris”, … #EngQuiz

“@rossioktaviani: Nah! RT @EnglishTips4U: A4. In English “keris” is written “kris”, this can be checked on most online dictionaries :)”


English will always evolve and seems that global English absorbs Indonesian/Malay words as well, we know the latest is “sambal


Who would know if Indonesian English or English Indonesian would exist? Yet it doesn’t mean kicking out Bahasa Indonesia itself


Hope you will have a great day tomorrow on Indonesia’s Independence Day :)
