I felt like I was having a cardiac arrest when I heard that. Maybe I too need to be homesick! Help.

Akmal said...

I decided to test this question on a 20-year old & the answer was 'rumah sakit'! Talk 'bout literal translation. Ha! Ha!

Wiz said...

Ummi - Thanks for dropping by. They are foreign students aged between 19 to 23.

Akmal - Yes, I laughed but not to their interpretation of the word, more to their confidence showing off their somewhat little knowledge of the English vocab dengan bangganya.

Alia - really? same literal translation. I guess come to think of it, it does sound like rumah sakit kan.

Sapura - Will email the pics to you. Gimme your email first.

Enida said...

They must have confused 'homesick' with 'sick-bay', no? Hmmm...it doesn't hit home either, does it? Ahak ahak! Darndest things students say kan?

Wiz said...

I think it was more of a literal translation rasanya. Home being rumah and sick being sakit, hence rumah sakit. Betui jugak kan?

zaitgha said...

you teach foreign student ya? i wonder what our local students' answers if given same question...

btw, how big is you muffettes? i admire your patience he he

Wiz said...
