this bit has some basics - no doubt already there - and also some lists of useful words.

though some of its definitions are a bit iffy... such as
"cengeng: sappy"
I'd usually translated that as "crybaby" or "whinger" or "weeping wuss".

sappy is a very poor choice. crybaby would seem to fit best. (the jakchat kamus, btw, uses crybaby)

maybe i should put a reporting function in the kamus box for suspect or wrong definitions ...

Sorry , UBB Mangler won't let me :-

"We encountered a problem. The reason reported was
The files you may upload must have the following extension: : .gif,.jpg,.txt,.zip,.png,.doc,.dbf

Please use your back button to return to the previous page. "

I just tried to RAR archive it and I can't upload that either - do you have an email address with a decent size mailbox ?
