Saya pergi dokter kermarin. Dia memberi saya obat. Dia katanya tidak bekerja selama dua hari.
Saya pergi rumah. Saya minum teh. Saya tidur...
Saya tidak begitu sakit sekarang. Saya pergi bejerka besok. Saya guru di sekolah dasar.
Well, there's my first try at blogging in the Indonesia language. Here's a rough translation, followed by a word list...
I was sick today. And yesterday and the day before. And Sunday and Saturday. Five days sick. My nose was sick. My left ear was sick. My throat was sick. I was hot. My whole body was sick.
I went to the doctor yesterday. He gave me medicine. He said no work for two days.
I went home. I drank tea. I slept.
I'm not very sick now. I'll go to work tomorrow. I am a teacher at an elementary school.
