The Bizzare and the Unusual

About just things I have the appetite to write about.

Crash Course in Bahasa Indonesia.

We want to travel to Indonesia , to cities such as Jakarta, Bandung or tourist centers such as the Island Of Bali. But we have difficulty in learning the language. So what do ? Since the purpose of communication is to communicate so most likely we will use two types of language. They are: body language and Tarzan language, which means we talk with wrong structures. We still can send the message, but its difficult.

So lets get to the point and learn some simple Indonesian language for successfully traveling to Indonesia. Some call Indonesian language as the BAHASA. It is slightly different from Bahasa Melayu or Malayan Language.

These phrases are the most likely used in every day traveling speech.
