Revision and Recall: Bahan Bacaan for Tutorial 2 on p. 7

Selamat tengahari

Recall the conversation between Hasnah and Kamal on Rumah Baru di Sengkang

There is the phrase Bagus sekali > Most wonderful

and there is this phrase …Kawasannya tidak begitu sibuk referring to Sengkang as a not so busy area.

Hence I used … begitu jauh sekali for so far away in the previous entry coinciding with the lyrics of Miles Away.

We now have a first Malay blog submission from Selina linked beside this blog.

Terima kasih

Here is my story for the day updated 516 pm

Hari ini hari Rabu.  Saya begitu sibuk sekali pad hari ini.

Saya belajar di CDTL NUS pada pukul 10 pagi hingga 1220 tengah hari

Saya berjumpa (meet) dengan (with) guru lain di Hayat Kedua (Second Life) [Official Duty]

Sekarang saya penat (tired) dan saya masih ada banyak kerja lagi.

Saya akan pergi ke pejabat pos sekarang untuk barang saya. 

Tetapi saya masih sangat gembira dan senang hati…

  1. Can I say “sejuk sekali” when the weather is cold? I hear this phrase when I was young, complained by my grandmother.

    • Sejuk is cold

      Sekali is found in the Rumah di Sengkang:

      Bagus sekali = most good or most wonderful.

      Sekali in this sense is a superlative.

      So when you say sejuk sekali it means most cold

      You say that when you bite your ice-cream cone

      When you feel cold you say saya berasa sejuk. I feel cold.

      Or Saya berasa sangat sejuk (I feel very cold)’

      Terima kasih, cikgu

  2. Your grandma was probably comparing her experience of that coldness

    so when she said that it was her most cold experience of that category (may it be weather, food, or drinks)at that point.

    Or it’s just her way of saying by adding superlative
    and you become her grandson (cucu) yang pandai sekali
