A friend of mine posted this as his FB status :
“kalau basikal drpd bicyle, motosikal drpd motorcycle, then seterika itu bahasa apa? apesal bukan "hari ini saya tak sempat besi baju?" this is no joke, can someone let me know where this word come from?”
Then a friend of mine manage to shed some lights on the answer. This is his response to the FB status :
“I think I found it: "Strijken" [Dutch. Google translate can pronounce this] Source: http://sealang.net/sala/archives/pdf8/hiramoto2007lexical.pdf”

Anyhow, my purpose here is not to promote the study of language but some funny stuff exchange that we had over the posts. Take a look :-
dots just for laugh
