Manja means clingy. When you're being [manja] means that you're being too clingy. We're going to see in the scene that I took from an Indonesian movie, Ada Apa Dengan Cinta 1 where this word is spoken.

But let's also look at the meaning in Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia.

Let's watch this scene below.


And then the conversation that happened in that scene with English translation is as follows.
A: Bisa ngomong sebentar? Ngga bisa? (Can we talk? Can’t?) 
B: Masalahnya apa dulu, nih? Kita ngomong di luar. Ada apa? (What’s the problem? Let’s talk outside. What’s wrong?) 
A: Maksudnya apa, nih? (What is this?) 
B: Surat gue dibaca juga? Kirain cuma mo baca bacaan penting aja. Karya sastra. (Oh, so you read my letter? I thought that you just want to important things like literature works.) 
A: Kamu ni kenapa sih? Tersinggung gara-gara saya ngga mau diwawancara? Ya udah, wawancara sekarang. (What’s wrong with you? Were you mad because I refused being interviewed by you? Then, go ahead interview me now.) 
B: Ngga usah manja! (Stop being clingy!) 
A: Enak aja loe ngatain gue manja. Elo, mo diwawancara sekarang? Basi! Madingnya udah siap terbit! (What? Did you just say I was being clingy? So, you want me to interview you now? Too late! The wall magazine is ready to be published!)
I am going to explain a little before I give you 3 example sentences using this word. When he saw her playing with her nail when he spoke to her then this sentence came out from his mouth.
Ngga usah manja.
Ngga usah here has the same meaning with [jangan], so I can substitute this sentence with this one.
Jangan manja.
Ni is short for [ini], so will see that in daily conversation in Indonesia there are a lot of words that you say it completely, like this one for example.

Next, I'm gonna give you 3 example sentences using this word.

Example Sentences

The first example sentence is.
Dia terlalu dimanja oleh orang tuanya sehingga dia tidak mandiri.
The English translation for this sentence is.
She is being spoiled too much by her parents, that's why she can't be independent.

The second example sentence is.
Anaknya sih kalau gue bilang terlalu manja ya.
The English translation for this sentence is.
I am gonna say that she is being spoiled too much by her parents.

The third example sentence is.
Kamu bisa ngga sih ngga usah terlalu manja kaya gitu?
The English translation for this sentence is.
Can you please not be too clingy?

I think this is a wrap. I hope that you will understand my explanation and if you have any questions, you can just write down your questions in the comment section down below. Thank you very much.
