Just Placing it out there
Similar to the phrase "just putting that out there", but it is usually said more as suggestion, particularly when the person saying it lacks confidence that his answer or solution is correct.
Just placing it out there, but we should go bowling tonight.
Just placing it out there, but I think Rachel likes you.

Got another one... wink


Singglish (Singaporean English) is marked by 'lah' : Come on,
buy-lah,cheap-lah, quick-quick-lah,
Javelish.. The typical Javanese language: 'lho', 'lha', 'tho', 'kok',
ki, etc

Lho, I already bought that book !
Kok, buying again ?
I told you many times 'tho' !
Lha, I did'nt know ... how ki !?
Don't be like that, no....!?

Jakartenglish ? Jakarte English is marked by the 'sih', 'deh', 'dong',
'nih', etc

That book is very good, deh.
Can you speak english?.. yeah a litle sih I can!
Use my money first nih..
Give me more dong..
[Jeje] She is overthere, no.... (dia di sono,no....)

Other exclamation words of Java :wo_, wah, wé_, jian, and jé_
We_ lha this book is mine jé...!
Wo_, only like that tho!
Wah, expensive, tho ?
Jian, Paijem is so beautiful tenan.

Sundanglish is also available such as
atuh, euy, mah

Well, if that kind, it pretty so-so atuh
It can't be that way euy..
I am mah, not like that...
anything else?

There are also abundant 'sound effect' in Javanesse language.
Suddenly, mak bedhengus den Tukiman appeared
My head feels pain, mak cleng !
Mak tlepok, I got a manggo !
My chicken is suddenly died, mak cekengkeng
Mak gedebug, Kampreté fell down.
Mak jegagik.... Oh, trondholo !

Not related to any language... laugh


Why red Indian Names are Long?

A little Red Indian boy asked his father, the big
chief and witch doctor of the tribe, "Papa, why is it that we always have long names,while the white men have shorter names - Bill, Tex or Sam, for example?"

His father replied, "Look, son, our names represent a symbol, a sign, or a poem for our culture --not like the white men, their names from generation to generation. Also, it is part of our makeup that in spite of everything, we survive.

For example, your sister's name is Small Romantic MoonOver The Lake,because on the night she was born, there was a beautiful moon reflected in the lake.

Then there's your brother, Big White Horse of the
Prairies, because he was born on a day that the big white horse who gallops over the prairies of the world appeared near our camp and is a symbol of our capacity to live and the life force of our people.

It's very simple and easy to understand.

Do you have any other questions, Little Broken Condom Made in China ?"

How about this hanabi?...


Break up letter
ala Indonesian lady

Hi, my motive write this letter is to give know you something
Hai, bersama surat ini saya ingin memberi tahu sesuatu

I WANT TO CUT CONNECTION US
saya ingin memutuskan hubungan kita

I have think about this very cook cook
saya telah memikirkan ini masak masak

I know I clap one hand only
saya tahu bahwa saya hanya bertepuk sebelah tangan

Correctly, I have seen you and she together at town
with my eyes and head myself
sebenarnya, saya pernah melihat kamu bersama perempuan lain
di kota dengan mata kepala saya sendiri

You always ask for apology back back
kamu selalu minta maaf berulang ulang

I don't trust you again!!
saya tidak percaya kamu lagi

You are really crocodile land!!
kamu benar benar buaya darat

My Friend speak you play fire
teman saya bilang kamu bermain api

Now I know you correct correct play fire
sekarang saya tahu kamu benar benar bermain api

So, I break connection to pull my body from this love triangle
jadi saya putuskan saja hubungan untuk menarik diri dari cinta segitiga ini

I know this result I pick is very correct,
because you love she very high from me
saya tahu keputusan yg saya ambil ini benar,
karena kamu mencintai dia lebih dari saya

So, I break off to go far from here
jadi saya putuskan untuk pergi dari sini

I don't want you to play play with my liver
saya tidak ingin kamu main main dengan hati saya

I have crying until no more eyes water thinking about you
saya menangis sampai tidak ada lagi air mata memikirkan kamu

I don't want banana to fruit two times
saya tidak mau terpeleset untuk kedua kalinya

Safe walk...
selamat jalan..

Full Love
penuh cinta

Sri

Have heard all of these.

Hey Hanabi, have you heard of boachim or bo chim....not sure of the spelling ......"think phonetics".

The wife calls me this all the time but the best description that she could give is kind of like a familiar smell of someone, perhaps applied to babies????

Would love to know what it means (and if she is taking the piss! laugh

Hey, finding a bear that can talk is pretty cool. Pop down to the local zoo and try having a D&M with the guys down there. Chances are they will eat you. frown

A bear that can type lucid comments on a web chat site is damn rare. smile

Count your blessings, if I were one of Ruby monkeys I would be throwing shit not talking it smile

what's a D&M, PB?
Am only joking.... couldnt live without your commentary now! And since you mention it, she tends to call me that when I am hot and sweaty - I think it's something to do with the natural odour people give off. She insists its a compliment (trust me I have asked a lot!)

Deep and meaningful. The sort of conversation that girls have.

Polar Bears don’t have them, cos there isn’t a lot deep or meaningful in a Bears life.

Girls live by them. They can have D&M conversations for hours on inane subjects.

Talking of D&M.

I have reached a hiatus in my life, and I am not sure of the next stepping stone across the river. I am too far over to go back, but I don’t like what I see in front.

I fell in love with Yolanda, but it could never go anywhere. She wants a good husband, a little house, children etc. (She is also a total slut who swings both ways, with 38C boobs and great legs).

My work sucks. One more bloody project full of shitty problems and I start shooting developers.

My life sucks. All of it. I struggled hard to get things, only to discover that having them was really no fun.

I have applied for a lot of jobs in Iraq. Some IT, some Logistics, some security.

Magpie, I'm not a Sundanese expert, so I can only guess. If she refers the words to smell, then the first one is 'bau' which means smell. And if you never have shower, laugh then the second one is 'asam' or with girly pronunciation, 'achem', which means sour (for taste), acid, tamarind. Or did she smell your armpit? wink Anyway, it doesn't mean bad. It's only to show affection, also to babies.

Thanks, yes that's pretty much as she described it.

And me not showering..... eek I would stink, I have a mandi about 4 or 5 times a day in Indo anyway, just to keep cool! smile

And I dont mind being called bau asem...I am her great big geordie baby after all!

Thanks Hanabi, you just helped me understand something.

PB - may a suggest a holiday, or early retirement? I would say find you another woman with a personality as strong as yours...someone that keeps you on your toes.....and maybe even someone that you will let boss you around...somebody with a spark, somebody that will make you chase her, and not give you the cream pie to eat on the first night.......somebody that makes you chase them.

Anyway, smiles mate, it's only crap for as long as you concentrate on it being crap.

You have a great life compared to many, as you know, but that's the problem isnt it.......we are rarely happy with what we have right now.

You know how to sort this out I think.

I feel thay way too sometimes, but then I thought about the war victims, poor people in nature disaster like tsunami, flood or earthquake, hungry people in Africa etc, many people out there live worse than I do, so I should feel grateful for what I have now.
