      Ember if from the Dutch word emmer. In Dutch there is also a slang version which has become a verb and which means nagging: emmeren (sodomize a female horse).

      There are more btw: asbak (ashtray) has become a prokem synonym for vagina for instance.

      interesting, street language culture.

        It's similar to hehehehe, but it tries to represent a chuckle rather than a hearty laugh. The previous version of it was kekekeke, somewhat related to Indonesian expression "tertawa terkekeh-kekeh".

                Thanks Guys! Just what I was looking for. Why the heck didn't I think to look for other resources?
                At last! Now my evil destiny can be fulfilled! wkwkwkwk! lol
                I compiled a master list. I hope it helps me understand things better from my FB friends.
                I'll have to put it on my tablet and have it next to the laptop beside the main computer.

                    Well, I'm an Indonesian native speaker but to be honest i don't speak nor write slang words much. So I don't know much about it. I'm not really into such a thing so called 'bahasa gaul' And I've just learned quite much from here. Thanks a lot to all of you who posted it

                      t4 = tempat
                      d5 = delima
                      s6 = senam
                      s7 = setuju

                      Only the first of these is in common use.

                        Common? Well, in my entire social media life, texts or emails I have never used these abbrv.
                        So maybe not too common ya? Or maybe it is me who don't use abbreviations much (unless my thumb is numb from typing too much on my phone)
                        s7 for setuju yes but I never use the others.

                        Never used or recognized these too, I don't know where these abbrv. came from.

                          Well, what can I say? I never hear "gue" outside Jakarta and rarely inside it. Mostly seems to be bahasa keren used by angry & arrogant characters in sinetron.

                          Life imitates art?

                            OK, I confess that I made up d5 and s6 after my stepdaughters used t4 and told me about s7.

                            Indonesian guy who sells Walls ice cream via bicycle always uses "met" when greeting me with a text asking if we want to buy that day.

                            Nggak --> gak --> g condensed quickly about 10 years ago. We almost always use "g" among family.

                            Guy who delivers LPG and aqua just replies "y" to confirm our order.

                              I don't understand what you are trying to say martindo.

                              But anyway,
                              Here's some abbreviations I normally use...
                              yg = yang
                              sm = sama
                              dgn = dengan
                              dmn = di mana
                              knp = kenapa
                              tp = tapi
                              enggak = ga
                              ya sometimes y when I'm busy but need to reply asap
                              as for gue I always use gw instead of gue or gua

                              Funny I texted with a foreigner and he used the language just like indonesians, saying aku with aq (mostly used by women tho well some men use it too I'm not sure. I myself never used aq always aku). and saying iya dong, ah sounds cute!

                                What one person thinks is "common" is "unusual" to another person. Somebody who makes sinetron seems to think "gue" is common, but I never hear it.

                                I use aq sometimes, mgu sometimes. Always: knp, yg, sm, tp, g and also d for "di". But at least half of my bahasa sms messages are with family members, so they know my idiosyncrasies and I know theirs.
