Dutch Influence


Just a bit of fun. We know Dutch ruled our country for 350 years. Surely they have influences on our life, one of them is on the language. I was amused to find these familiar words which we used in bahasa with have same meanings (e.g spandoek, koffer, pleister, photoafdruk). Too bad, my kids don’t know these as much as we do. But I guess our parents also feel that way too about us 🙂
