              Massetia,
              please do not start a new thread for each translation you want for some SMS. You can ask all in one thread.

              mods, can you please combine all these threads.

                  Why dont you ask the person who is sending you these messages? Or are they not addressed to you?

                    Maybe the messages are not for you to be reading?

                      [COLOR=#333333]Albert: Penak Jamane pak harto......???[/COLOR] -- The Soeharto era was better, wasn't it?
                      [COLOR=#333333]Sandy: s7 bwgEeeeet[/COLOR] -- Yes agree... soo agree with you.
                      [COLOR=#333333]Billy: Mary iko pas arep rabi..surate ngurusi teko kne to...1 pgn tpn lo[/COLOR] -- Mary is going to get married. They take care of the papers up to here (I don't understand the rest).
                      [COLOR=#333333]Eddie: Penak jaman ku yo[/COLOR] -- My era was better, right?
                      [COLOR=#333333]Albert: ki no re 0877xxxxxxxx[/COLOR] -- This my phone number 0877......
                      [COLOR=#333333]Albert: Eddie...jmn mu mlh ajur gk karuan[/COLOR] -- Eddie, your era was even worse than it is......
                      [COLOR=#333333]Eddie: Gkgkgkgkgkgkgkgk![/COLOR] -- laughing sound
                      The message above is meant for native Javanese from a certain region. I speak Javanese quite well and I find it difficult to understand some of the dialogue above since they are using abbreviations that I was not aware of.

                        Because I am learning BaHasan and I don't want them know that I can't understand. Otherwise they will make jok on me! Please help.

                          I would like to discuss with them but I can't understand. How can I join in.

                            well,simply tell them that you'd like to join the conversation but you don't speak the language.

                              those are not Bahasa Indonesia.

                              those phrases that you posted are Javanese. YNK is an abbreviation. Ask it to the person sending it.
