Indonesian has a "feel word" to show what you feel inside

I am affraid

saya (merasa) takut / sa-ya (me-ra-sa) ta-kut

so you must useful "Merasa / me-ra-sa" tp show what u feel inside.

the One important to remember. don't say anything that include to the "SEX WORD" in the public place. like:

he's hot

dia menggairahkan / dee-a meng-ga-ee-rah-kan

cause if you do that, the around people will be put their eyes to your face... remember don't do that... acctually it's your privacy to do anything that you want to do. but if you want to say "He's hot"... please to say with the soft voice. remeber soft voice.....

I though using the word for INTERESTING as MENYENANGKAN a little odd (aneh) as MENYENANGKAN means PLEASING. Interesting would better be decribed as MENARIK.

To say someone is kind would normally be DIA BAIK HATI.

Any comments?
