So, let's talk about this.

Darah Biru In Bahasa Indonesia

Let's translate it word for word for once. Darah means blood, and biru means blue. So, darah biru translates to,
Blue Blood.
This is the literal translation of darah biru, but the real meaning is not that.

Now, let's see the meaning of darah biru according to Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia. Let's look at the screenshot below.

Darah Biru Meaning

Darah biru means,
Keturunan bangsawan (ningrat).
Which translates to,
An aristocratic person or comes from noble lineage.
So, as you can see the real meaning is very different than the literal meaning.

How to Pronounce Darah Biru

Let's hear down below how to pronounce darah biru.


And now, let's watch a scene from an Indonesian movie where this phrase is spoken.

Darah Biru In a Movie Scene

Let's watch this scene where this phrase is spoken.


The conversation in that scene with English translation is as follows.
Ali: Nama Lengkap? (Full name?) 
Otoy: Raden Doyok Prayitno Raharjo. (Raden Doyok Prayitno Raharjo.) 
Ali: Darah biru dia? (Is he from aristocratic lineage?) 
Otoy: Kaga tahu gue! Ngga pernah lihat dia mimisan. Hihihi. (I don’t know. I’ve never seen his nosebleed. Hihihi.) 
Ali: Tulis aja Doyok, ya? (I will just write as Doyok here, don’t I?)

So, in that conversation, he was kind of surprise when knowing that his friend was from aristocratic lineage because he didn't appear like so. When he asked his friend,
Darah biru dia?
Which translates to,
Is he from aristocratic lineage?
He asked this because his friend has "Raden" in front of her name. Raden is a title for an aristocratic person. And then his friend answered that he doesn't know about it, then he said this.
Ngga pernah lihat dia mimisan.
Which translates to,
I've never seen his nosebleed.
He referred to the literal translation of darah biru that is blue blood. It's like if he were to say,
"If I had seen his nosebleed than I know what color was his blood." He was trying to response to his friend question with a joke.
