Jangkih-mangkih (pronounced junkie monkey): Scattered around in a disorderly manner. Tidak teratur.

Possible uses.

‘Jangkih-mangkih mate.’
‘You got that right.’

The situation is pretty jangkih-mangkih.

Indonesia is jankih-mangkih.

He was jangkih-mangkih.

His stool was jangkih-mangkih.

This word should not be allowed to disappear from the Indonesian language. It is just too cool.

I'd say nggak karuan, junkie monkey does sound better though.

Found it in a dictionary but nobody I have mentioned it to has ever heard it. Quite possibly similar to helter skelter and hurly burly, which are disappearing from the English language.

I still use hleter skelter and hurly burly.

I like those old expressions.

"Dammit Sir. You are nothing but a Cad sir, and a Boundah Sir, I am mindded to call you out over this Sir".

Sounded better than "asshole"
