#EngQuiz: Halloween trivia

Hello, fellas. Tonight we’ll have a quiz to test your knowledge on Halloween.  Let’s begin! Continue reading #EngQuiz: Halloween trivia


#EngGame: Nationality

Here I have a little game to play. If some of you are tired and stressed out because you’ve just finished your work or lecture, I hope you’ll will refreshed.

How many nationality do you know in this world? You might have heard of the famous ones such as American, British, Chinese, Korean. But this time, I want to measure your knowledge by letting you guess the nationality for people who live in a country we rarely hear about.

I will give you 8 clues which are the suffix usually put after the name of the country. They are: -ian, -ean, -an, -ese, -er, ic, -ish, and –i. Okay, let’s begin and I will start from the easiest one. I bet you have heard or read about it somewhere.

  1. Belgium = _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Egypt = _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Sweden = _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Iraq = _ _ _ _ _
  1. Bangladesh = _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Finland = _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Poland = _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Switzerland = _ _ _ _ _
  1. Kuwait = _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Morocco = _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _



  1. Belgian
  2. Egyptian
  3. Swedish
  4. Iraqi
  5. Bangladeshi
  6. Finnish
  7. Polish
  8. Swiss*
  9. Kuwaiti
  10. Morrocan
  • You might heard that Swiss is a name of a country. You might also think that Swiss is the other name of Switzerland or Sweden, but apparently Switzerland and Sweden are two different countries. And Swiss is not a country, but a nationality.

#EngGame: So punny

What appears on Goku’s head when he died and waves upon meeting you?

Halo, Fellas! How are you today? cringes very hard

We’re going to do a fun and cringe-worthy game! Just as the one I mentioned at the start of this article.


What is pun?

Do you know what pun is, Fellas? Check out #EngTrivia: About pun to help you understand puns!

Pun, or paranomasia, is some sort of a wordplay joke. It mainly uses homophones or words that have dual meanings.


#EngGame: So punny

Well, enough with the introduction. Let’s get some basic rules for our #EngGame! I will state one or two sentences and you finish it with puns!

  2. Why was the toilet paper rolling down the hills?
  3. Why couldn’t the bicycle stand up on its own?
  4. Why does he hate insect jokes?
  5. What happens to the man who got into an accident in the textile factory?
  6. Why is the Grizzly so proud of his den?
  7. Why won’t your teddy bear eat?
  8. What do you call a literate insect?
  9. Why do crabs never give to charity?


  1. Nothing, it just waved.
  2. To get to the bottom.
  3. Because it’s two tired.
  4. Because it bugs him.
  5. He’s dyeing now.
  6. He built it with his bear hands.
  7. He is already stuffed.
  8. A spelling bee.
  9. Because they are shellfish.


Sorry for all the cringe I made, Fellas! I know some (or all) of them are lame but they entertain me!

#EngGame: Songs of Indonesian in English Translation

Fellassss! How are you? Did you have anything special today? Perhaps any of you got a new boyfie or girlfriend? LOL. Today, we are gonna have a game – a cheesy game but it’s pretty entertaining if you have a dull (membosankan) evening. This time, we will play a game on songs. What songs? Indonesian songs! But then they are translated into English.

The challenge is, you gotta guess what the titles of the songs are. There will be two clues: the singer and the year of release. Most of the lyrics translated are the refrain and the beginning. So, I’m sure some of you can guess the title of the songs. Ready? Here we go..

(1) God, please.. Only for this time

Give me strength to deep see her eyes

God, please.. Only for this time

Make the day smooth.

The day with her (Sheila on 7, 2010)

(2) Sorry, but I need to leave.

I can’t live with it.

I am not blunt as your kept women.

Thank God you revealed who he really was.

Sorry, we gotta break up. (Krisdayanti, 2007)

(3) Imagine, feel it…

If all the tables turned to you.

Imagine, feel it…

If you were in my shoes. (Maudy Ayunda, 2014)

(4) This is how it feels

For being used to the heart breaks

Do face the suffer

For being used to the hurt (The Rain, 2013)

(5) What is it for? What is love without honesty?

What is it for? What is love without deeds?

It has no meaning. (Maudy Ayunda, 2015)

(6) It has been long alone

It has been long alone that I enjoyed the emptiness

It has been long with no accompany (Kunto Aji, 2014)

(7) Be patient, darling. I will be home

Don’t you listen to the gossips

I promise that I’ll always be with you

Although I am not by your side (Repvblik, 2014)

(8) Half of my soul has gone

All were beautiful yet hurtful at the end

You cheated

You left me, consciously (Anang, 2009)

(9) What is wrong with this song?

Why do I remember you again?

As I can feel..

Your heart’s trembles and steps

Where are they gonna lead me? (Sheila on 7, 2014)

Alrighty! Tetoooot. The time is up. Here are the answers. Check if you guessed them correct.

  1. Hari Bersamanya (Sheila on 7, 2010)
  2. I’m Sorry Goodbye (Krisdayanti, 2007)
  3. Bayangkan Rasakan (Maudy Ayunda, 2014)
  4. Terlatih Patah Hati (The Rain, 2013)
  5. Untuk Apa (Maudy Ayunda, 2015)
