10 years in Indonesia have taught me that even when Indonesian bar girls speak English, what they mean is not always obvious. Here is a little guide to help you deal with your relationships!

What they say to you: 'You are over protective'
What they really mean: 'You don't let me sleep with other guys'

You are stingy
You don't want to support all my family

I'm not eating pork
I drink alcohol, I don't pray and I've had sex before marriage so the last thing that keeps me from going to hell is to refuse eating pork

Let's go party
Accompany me party and please pay for all my drinks

Come party with me and my girls
Accompany us party and please pay for all our drinks

I've been to Bats only a few times
I'm a regular of Bats

I have a long distance relationship
A guy is sending me money

I need money to pay for my school
I want the iPhone X!!!

I've lost my phone!
I sold my phone, please buy me a new one

I wish I had a mixed baby
I am not using any contraceptive

You have to understand me
That guy was so hot, sorry I cheated

You have to respect my religion
You have to convert to Islam

He is just my friend!
He is a one night stand

I met him in the club
We slept together

Your friend is nice
I would do him

I always use condom
I have used condom once

She is my sister
She is a friend

She is my best friend
She is a friend

She is my cousin
She is a friend

She is a friend
I don't really like her

She/he is a Facebook friend
I have no idea who that is

I like photography
I take a selfie every 5 minutes

I don't like Jews
I don't know what a Jew is

I don't like politics
I've never opened a newspaper

I saw it on the news
I saw it on infotainment

I've read about it
I saw a post on Facebook about it

I have Path, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook
I spend 15 hours a day posting updates on my smartphone

I will have dinner with my girlfriends
We will spend 2 hours at the same table playing with our phones and taking pictures of food

I'll meet you at 8pm
I will leave from my place at 8pm

Today I went swimming
I went to the condo/hotel of a guy and we hanged out by the pool

I'm working freelance
I am a freelance prostitute

I'm working as a part-time model
I have modeled twice in my life

I'm working in Marketing
I am a pretty girl who distributes flyers

I don't like that friend of yours
You are not allowed to have any friends

We can eat anywhere
We can eat anywhere as long as there is rice on the menu

You can try, it's not spicy
I only put 2 tablespoons of chili sauce

I will just eat a small snack
I will eat a half kilo of banana fritters

I've been to Bali many times
I've been to Kuta many times

I like to listen to Jazz
I like cheesy pop songs

I love you
You are nice with me

I love you so much
You just bought me a present

I hate you
You are 5 minutes late

I'm happy
I received a good news 5 minutes ago

I'm unhappy
I received a bad news 5 minutes ago

You can go party with your friends
I will kill you when you get home

  1. Yes, all true. But why should you look for a gf in an ayam environment? They say and do the same things that their Thai or Vietnamese colleagues say and do..

  2. LoL, I don't know all that at all. Maybe bcoz I'm Indonesian man. Btw, where can I find the girl in school uniform at??

  4. Thanks for posting, but I am just curious; is this meant to be funny, or is it really true? That would be nice to know...

    1. Is your question for real?

      There is some truth in it, but of course it is just meant to be funny...

      Delete
    2. It was funny. And there is sure some truth to it. Ive been in Jakarta two times now, and all of the girls want money, money, money... Its natural because they are poor, but important to know about it so you dont get easily fooled by their promises.

      Delete
    3. You must be joking, they're not poor at all

  5. I won't generalise everyone, but as an Indonesian girl (I guess no point in explaining if I am one of these or not), I can relate what you mean.

    Well, overall, this is a funny, well written, and entertaining article (sad, but with a handful of truths in it).

    ReplyDelete
  6. very nice. so funny. hahaha

  7. I think this is pretty true for ALL girls! :) Thanks for posting this and sharing this!

  8. True to the core but that's because in Indo no one says what they mean - it's a cultural thing that foreigner don't get. And If they get it then they are already too long in Indo.
    so ...actually it's not that funny but sad.

  9. Im an indonesian girl, and all of them are true for prostitutes ��
    U should get a normal woman who has a good regular job who can support herself. Lol

    1. I couldn't agree more. All those definitions are true if you are talking to prostitutes. So, if you hangout at the right places you will meet super qualified women.

  10. How about these classic bar girl translations:

    1. This is the first time I worked as a karaoke hostess
    Meaning: This is the first time I have had you as a customer/sucker in the last five years that I have been working as a karaoke hostess.

    2. I worked here for three months and quit because of my day job and came back because I lost my job.

    Meaning: One of the customers here promised to make me his "simpanan/mistress" but because I became lazy and fat he cut me off so I'm back here again saying hello to a different sausage each night--life sucks!

  20. If you don't want your wealth exploited, don't flaunt your wealth. If you don't want your body exploited, don't flaunt your body. It works both ways you see.

  21. Ahaha so freaking hillarious, your jokes have transcended into some comedic show of the piece. This isn't an article at all. It's a comedy. The ones with politics and I love you is so funny coz it's true!

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is the art of game. Y'all bastard come to the bar looking for ayam just for playing, and ayam come with the same purpose. Just enjoy the game with its consequences. Play or get played, it's your choice. Good man either good woman wouldn't look for life partner in the club.
    Not all indonesian girls are the same, the writter ain't got lucky yet to meet qualified indonesian girls.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Quite funny and entertaining joke yet might become bad rumours and image for indonesian girls you'll find at the bar or club which is not ayam, or etc amongst tourists especially bule.
    No good girls who like to go to club but not all the girls who like to go to the club are bad girls as you mentioned above.

    ReplyDelete
  24. This was quite funny and entertaining. However @Maya R and @paramitaoktaviana comments made me laugh even more. There are some elements of truth in this article though.

    I have experienced both types of indonesian women, "cheap" and "classy and sophisticated". One had to live day by day with a child and the other is a Managing Director of her OWN company, both born in Jakarta and didnt have anyone else to rely on.

    Both of these women I appreciated spending time with, slept with, learnt, laughed and I still respect both of them, I am still in contact with them after 3 years.

    There are also 2 types of men. Those that are dedicated and looking for a life partner and those that want to pay for the pleasure of sex...this is called supply and demand.

    These types of men you will find in any country any place, these types of women you will find in any country any place.

    Its a simple concept...if you really want to know what Indonesian women mean...prove to them that you are GENUINE...then there is no need to ask. They dont tell you, they SHOW YOU.

    BTW - the "cheap" women that I met are paying off apartments and cars...rather than relying on the government.

  25. You did notice the title ..? ?

    BARGIRL .... it's not about normal girls

  26. Indonesian girl say: "I love getting tanned"

  27. Wow. This web has never been banned by MUI or Ministry of Telecomunucation and Informatics. Lol. Lets see

    ReplyDelete
  28. For the bitter guy/girl above me... What has this web to do with MUI or Ministry of telecommunication?? Its not a porn website?? Everybody can have their own opinion and you have your own right to agree or disagree. All you bitter can do is threat, threat & threat... What a shallow mind you are..
