HI everybody! It’s been a while since I’ve written my last lesson in MagelangImages. And today, we’re gonna talk about some body-related and behavioral habits that we might have.

Unfortunately, I still haven’t found the right words in bahasa (Indonesia) when translating some of the habits I’ve written below. Here in Magelang, most people speak Javanese (bahasa Jawa), including when we called some of the body-related and behavioral habits that we’re gonna learn about.

Slouching.

— Slouching adalah posisi badan yang agak membungkuk ketika kita sedang berdiri, duduk, atau sedang jalan. Ketika postur kita “slouching”, maka kita akan terlihat sedang loyo, lemes, nggak bergairah. Slouching ketika duduk dan bercakap-cakap dengan orang lain, juga akan memberi kesan bahwa kita sedang terlalu santai, atau kurang menghargai lawan bicara.

To stand, sit, or walking with the shoulders hanging forward and the head bent slightly over so that you look tired and bored.(dictionary.cambridge.org)

To sit or stand with an awkward, drooping posture. (dictionary.com)

Cracking knuckles.

—Ini saya belum nemu terjemahannya dalam bahasa Indonesia. Kalau bahasa Jawa, cracking knuckles bisa diartikan sebagai “njethuti”, atau “njethiti”. Kita menekuk-nekuk jari, sehingga berbunyi “klek” atau “klok”, berulang-ulang. Menggeleng-gelengkan leher, dan juga diinjak-injak punggung sampai bunyi “krek”, juga termasuk cracking knuckles.

To deliberately pull your fingers so that they make a short (loud) sound. (macmillandictionary.com)

From urbandictionary.com: knuckle cracker means a person who cracks his/her knuckles for pure amusement at any time or place.

Nose picking.

—Dalam bahasa Jawa, picking nose artinya “utik-utik upil”. Bahasa Indonesianya apa dong? Googling sajalah apa itu utik-utik upil.

The action of inserting one of the index fingers into either nostril, and clearing out residue in the nose called a booger. (urbandictionary.com)

To remove (dry) mucus from your nose with your finger. (Longman Dictionary)

There are also some other habits that we might have. But trust me, they are so disgusting and annoying if you do it in front of your speaking partner: smelling underarm odor (pegang-pegang ketiak sendiri, lalu kamu cium baunya); smelling butt/anus odour (ndulit-ndulit anus/silit sendiri pakai telunjuk, terus kamu cium baunya); and also smelling dirt under toenail (nyungkil kotoran di dekat kuku jempol kaki, lalu juga kamu cium baunya)…***(alwaysmagelang@gmail.com)
