“| eks eks i | / | eks eks wan | / | eks eks ai | / what?”
Something embarrassing happened last friday. It occured in Senayan City when we tried to find the cinema “XXI”. After looking around for a while, we still couldn’t find it. Then I asked a man standing with walkie-talkie on his hand.
“Mas..maaf..mo nanya..XXI (eks eks i) nya dimana ya?”. And he replied, “Apa, Mbak?”. “Eks eks i, Mas!”…but still..he didn’t get what I asked. Then, he moved toward a man with uniform. And this another man asked me “Kenapa, Mbak?”. I answered, “Eks eks i nya ada dimana ya, Mas?”. He also confused. Then I replied “Twenty One, Mas”. And..this man with “winning” face and “torturing” voice answered me “Ow..itu EKS EKS WAN, Mbak! Dari sini ke kiri aja”.
After saying “Terima kasih, Mas”, we quickly escaped from him:D Uhhh…I felt so stupid…f(-_-)…Arghhh…why does this cinema should has to be located in someplace hidden like that…
Who was correct? How should we pronounce “XXI”? Oh..someone..tell me..save me from saying something that would make me like want to vanish again 😛
