    That's the gist of it.

    Minta maaf sekali aku dik - I'm very sorry brother/sister
    Lain kali la dik - Some other time brother/sister
    Sabar aja kau dulu ya - You be patient, ok?

    It could very well be, I don't know enough to tell the difference. It's definitely South Sulawesi.

    I'm a native speaker. Even I can't make up what some of the (Indonesian) youngsters are talking about sometimes...it drives me crazy too.

    We seem to get these requests every few months. Not the Bugis part, obviously.
