The column Mari Berbahasa Indonesia or “Let’s Speak Bahasa Indonesia” aims to introduce some Indonesian vocabulary and expression that will guide you to the common use them in conversation.

The segment of Mari Berbahasa Indonesia has been made possible through cooperation between
The Indonesian Embassy in Canberra and Indomedia. You can access the audio version via instagram @inaincanberra.  

Next is a conversation about Pelayanan Kamar Hotel or in English ‘Hotel Room Service’. Let’s read the following conversation loudly and  slowly. You may repeat them again to make it perfect. 

Resepsionis: Selamat malam, dengan housekeeping. Ada yang bisa kami bantu?
Tony: Malam. Saya perlu pengering rambut. Boleh saya pinjam?
Resepsionis: Pengering rambut ada di laci lemari, Pak.
Tony: O, baik. Saya lihat dulu. Terima kasih.
Resepsionis: Sama-sama.

Now, I will introduce some vocabularies and phrases, related to the today’s topic. 

Saya perlu pengering rambut (I need a hairdryer)
Boleh saya pinjam pengering rambut? (May I borrow a hairdryer please?)
Laci (Locker)
Laci lemari (Drawer)

Saya lihat dulu (I’ll look for it first)
Butuh (to need)
Perlu (to need)

To Convey what you need, use the word “perlu” or “butuh”.

Saya butuh pengering rambut (I need a hair dryer)
Saya perlu handuk baru (I need a new towel)
