Betawi poem, translated by Santana Deo

Small love poem translated into dialect betawi (Jakartan Malay), a Malayo-Polynesian language, a Malay-based creole. There are 3 million speakers in and around Jakarta. The word Betawi comes from Batavia, the name of Jakarta during the Dutch colonization. The languages, Javanese and Sundanese, have enriched betawi which is the language of the first inhabitants of Jakarta. Kota Tua is the old name of the city.
