    Default Your Favorite Thing About Indonesia

    Ok, with the negativity going on the other thread. I am going to see what positive stuff we can come up with. What is your #1 favorite thing about Indonesia?

    Our lovely Indonesian husbands, wifes, fiancées and GFs are #1 of course, but the #1 after them

    1b) The positive response I get when I utter just the simplest Bahasa phrase. "Hatur Nuhun," "Sami-Sami," "Mangga," etc. They are so happy to hear it lol.

    1c) The fact that I have to drive so little, I have put less that $3 in gas in my Scooter this month .

    Gosh Cup I would have thought you would have picked your wife (fiance?) or maybe your ex after reading this. Gas savings and language uses over her. Naughty naughty Cuppy.

    1. I like the availability of women who want to get naked and play with me.

    2. General politeness and several welcoming attitudes here (ties into number 1. often too)

    3. I enjoy the Indonesian language.

    4. An abundance of beautiful land to wander and view.

    5. Inexpensive day to day.

    FYI, for those who didn't know, Hatur Nuhun is not Bahasa Indonesia, it is Bahasa Sunda. It means thank you, and I believe that's a formal way. Informally, just Nuhun is fine.
    I've always heard "you're welcome" as "sama sama", maybe it's just a different pronunciation?
    Not sure about Mangga.

    To further the lessons, these are Bahasa Indonesia:
    - Terima Kasih or 'ma kasih = Thank you
    - Tolong = please help
    - Permisi = please (asking permission)

    Ahhh absolutely correct Rabbit, my bad. I always just say Bahasa and my wife gets it, I should have clarified Bahasa Sunda . I am trying to learn them both at the same time lol. My wife always yells at me because I count in Indonesian lol, she wants me to count in Sundanese.
