Indonesian Understanding

Orders are picking up at the Nanepashemet Blogging Apparel Store.

Which is a bit of a concern because I'm expecting a surge when the Holiday Gift Season hits next month or soon.   The Indonesian sweat shop that manufactures these fine items has been moving along at a brisk pace, but I need them to step up the production if we are to meet the increasing sales demand.

So late last night, I put in the call to Jakarta and had a nice conversation with the manager there, even though  he has a a halting command of the English language.  Seems he put me on Speaker and started yelling... "It NESTA,  It NESTA" to some people in the background.

When I told him that we had to increase the pace of production, he started yelling "NESTA want MORE.. NESTA want MORE."
~
Immediately the crowd in the background started chanting something in Indonesian...

"Persetan Anda sialan bercinta, "
"Persetan Anda sialan bercinta, "
"Persetan Anda sialan bercinta. "

I have no freaking idea what that means, but the manager said it was Indonesian for "We will comply Master J."   When I get a chance I'll confirm this translation at Google Translate.

So I think we should be in good shape filling all of the orders in the weeks ahead.
