as indonesian, i found this book quite helpful to me in explaining certain aspects of indonesia to non-indonesians. sometimes i just have to laugh finding peculiar idioms listed, too!

Languages can give us insights about a country's culture and people like no other source.
Sometimes a funny book, but also an honest book that doesn't mask the ugliness.
Was using this as a reference when teaching Indonesian at the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
