  4. Parliament building: gedung parlemen (see “note” below).

  6. Port: pelabuhan. It can also be “harbour.”

  9. Museum: museum.
  10. Town Hall: balai kota.
  11. Library: perpustakaan, including local library (perpustakaan daerah).


NOTE for no. 4:

Question: do fellas think Gedung DPR, MPR, DPRD are also parliament buildings?

“Yes, I think so.” – @nurulnisautami

“No.” – @sherly_ariesta

Why “yes” @nurulnisautami? And why “no” @sherly_ariesta?

“May be because DPR and MPR are national parliament institution.” – @nurulnisautami

“I think its house of commons.” – @sherly_ariesta

“House of Commons is the elective, lower house of the Parliament of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Canada, and various other countries in the Commonwealth of Nations.” @sherly_ariesta

So, do fellas think Gedung DPR, MPR, DPRD are also parliament buildings?

 “They are.” – @Ulllyyyy @nurulnisautami,


So that’s it for today fellas :) I hope you had good fun with the #EngVocab :D
