Hello everyone, my name is Dan. Actually I live in Guangzhou China, but I'm American. I really need someone who speaks Indonesian to please translate a short letter for me (about half a page). It's for my ex-girlfriend who is Indonesian and who I want back, bad. She speaks English, but I want to surprise her and write her the letter in Indonesian, I think it will make her very happy. I would really really appreciate this, and i would be glad to invite you to our wedding! laugh
My email is bucephalus756@yahoo.com
Thanks,
Dan

I'd love to help but...this is tricky and risky.
One wrong translation can make your original mission to turn to disaster.

Thats why I did not just post the letter. I want to talk to someone as they write it so I can explain clearly how I feel. If you would really like to help me please email me. smile

Dan, sorry the people here aren't very helpful and don't speak much English or Indonesian. But don't despair! I'll write the love letter for you:

Dasar pelacur,
Aku benci kau! Kurang ajar! Buat apa kau kembalik ke Indonesia? Mungkin kau dah punya suami. Pelacur! Saya tidak mau menikah dengan kau, karena kau telah merusak diri saya seperti binatang. Karena itu saya malu untuk menikah dengan pelacur yng jelek.
Ngentot-loe! Lebih baik saya membunuh kau. Memang aku lebih senang dengan boneka ular, di dalam celana dalamku.
Kisses,
Dan

If that doesn't work and give you life-long happiness, better you post your original version here.

Thanks.

Please capitalise names - "Dasar Pelacur yg terhormat , "

Please also consider that the young lady may be Javanese - "Jancok lah" may be more appropriate if she is from east java -

Kenny , I am really surprised how you ruined a good letter with basic grammar faults

but we really, really want to help, dan. our motives are as pure as the white snow, and we ask for nothing in return, other than the heart-warming satisfaction of knowing we have helped another human in need.

Hahahaha Chewwy.

Show her da money.

Dan, mate, if you don't mind me asking, how did you lost here or why did you let her go in the first place? Why do you want her back? Answers to these questions will help me draft your letter.

I already contacted "honey" from my Kenneth Yeung email address as kennethyeung. So no harm done. After years of translating nothing but Indonesian cook books, it will be a pleasant change to translate a love letter. And by "translate" I don't mean "make a travesty of".

Thanks.
