I found out from my dad that the word "cangkir" (Indonesian for "cup) is Javanese in origin, and it's actually a short form of something that explains everything.

more language exchange with Tina~
and here's the thing with hippos and rhinos: Malays call them badak sumbu & badak air respectively; Indonesians only call rhinos badak and we call hippos kuda nil, literally meaning Nile horse. And there's the random plotline for a children's storybook about a hippo named Nile who wants to be a horse XD

thinking up theories how "inda payah" translates to "nggak usah" when "susah" means "payah"

the former pair of words means "don't bother" and the latter means "difficult/hard" btw

Tina sent me the copypasta list of western movie titles translated in Sabahan Malay, and then I sent her the one with the titles translated in Javanese Indonesian as a reply.
