Sampe Gondrong Meaning In Indonesian

Halo semuanya, apa kabar? This time we're going to talk about the meaning of the phrase [sampe gondrong]. I just saw this phrase was being used in an ad, and because a lot of Indonesian people know this phrase, I think I make this article to talk about this phrase.

We're also going to watch the ad so that you will see it for yourself that this phrase is being used in that ad, and I will explain it. 

If you want to learn Bahasa Indonesia with me, you can just join my group. You can check it out on the About Me page.

So, let's dive in. 

The Meaning of Sampe Gondrong

This phrase is not considered a slang term because every Indonesian person knows the meaning of this phrase. [Sampe] is informal for [sampai]. It means until, up to, to, through. [Gondrong] means [long hair].

So, literally [sampe gondrong] means [until your hair becomes long]. But usually, it is used figuratively. For instance, you have short hair, and you want to make it long. It takes a very long time to make the hair becomes long, right? This is where the meaning of [sampe gondrong] in figurative meaning comes from.

So, if you say sampe gondrong, it means that you do it for a very long time. Later, I'll give you example sentences using this phrase so that you will understand it better.
