After Mrs Roberts students asked me about the foods that students here eat, I thought I should blog this visit with Bu Sovia’s 2 youngest children to KFC! We are about to head off to the movies to see Man Of Steel and while we wait for the session to start, the children want to get something to eat from KFC.
Here is what KFC looks like at Bintaro Plaza, one of the malls near Bu Sovia’s house.
KFC is always served her with rice. Here is Mita opening her packet of rice:
It was fun watching an American film with an Indonesian audience! I also really enjoyed reading the Indonesian subtitles! Some of the translations were really interesting, in particular the different American insults that were bandied between the teenaged characters which were all translated as “bodoh” which literally means stupid!
After the film, as the audience was all trying to leave, I bumped into someone and without thinking said,”Sorry” instead of “Maaf”! After listening to 2 hours of English, I reverted back to English! Thankfully the young girl I was speaking to had also just watched a 2 hour film in in English and just nodded and smiled!
