My friend tag me something in facebook talk about points you must know about Sabahan, I'm going to share it here because I'm proud to be SABAHAN SUMANDAK, hihi. Enjoy it!=)
You are real Sabahan when:
U say 'saaaaaanaa' just to show how far that place is.
U pout ur lips, and turn to the direction to show where things are.
U answer 'ah?' when people call your name.
The word 'bah' can be used in almost all the situations.
U refer ur dad as 'boss' or 'beliau'
U refer ur mom as 'meliau' -- NO! or 'mem' -- YES
U refer ur friends as 'geng' or 'genk' or 'bro'
regardless of gender
U refer the waiter at restaurant as 'boss' as well
U were asked 'are u Indonesian?' by some
outsiders when they heard u speak.
U know what pindik2 tagap means.
U like to sing (not entirely true.haha)
U can use 'gia' n 'bah' properly.
If someone ask for help, u reply with " Boleh bah kalaw kaw ".
