Notice how similar are those days with Arabic numbers: wahid, isnain, tsalasa, arba’atun, khamsatun, etc.

However, usually Indonesian starts the day with Senin, Selasa, etc.

 

Hari apa hari ini? – What day is today?

Hari ini hari Minggu – Today is Sunday

Aduh, aku harus masuk sekolah besok! – Oh, I have to go to school tomorrow! (literally: I have to be inside the school tomorrow. Masuk: in, inside)

Besok? Tapi besok hari libur – Tomorrow? But tomorrow is holiday

Aku ketinggalan sesuatu di sekolah kemarin. Tugas untuk minggu ini. – I left something at school yesterday. Homework for this week.

Pergilah. Aku akan menunggumu. Ingat, kita akan ada pesta malam ini – Off you go. I’ll be waiting for you. Remember, we’ll have a party tonight

Oke. Sampai nanti – Okay. See you later
