This clip is taken from a TV Progam called Masterchef Indonesia. You can watch the full video HERE. Let's watch the clip below.


The conversation from the clip with English translations is as follows.

Chef Arnold: Gimana rasanya dicicipin sama Chef Juna? (How does it feel your cook being tasted by chef Juna?)

Masterchef Participant: Saya deg-degan sampai sekarang nih. (I'm still nervous until now.)

Chef Arnold: Deg-degan ya? (You are nervous, aren't you?)

Masterchef Participant: He'eh. Kedengeran ngga? (Yes. Can you hear it? My heart is pounding.)

Chef Arnold: Ngga denger saya. (No, I don't hear it.)

Masterchef Participant: Dag dug deg. Dag dig dug gitu. Ngga ya? (It makes a sound like this, dag dug deg, dag dig dug (*dag dud deg, and dag dig dug is onomatopoeia, she was trying to describe the sound of her heart pounding). You don't hear it, do you?)

Chef Arnold: Anyway, Opor Ayam ya? (Anyway, that's Opor Ayam that you made. Right?)

Masterchef Participant: Gimana, Chef? Suka? (What do you think, Chef? Do you like it?)

Chef Arnold: Sebenarnya opor itu salah satu masakan kesukaan saya. (Actually, Opor Ayam is one of my favorite dishes.)

Masterchef Participant: Iya. (Okay.)

In this clip, this woman is a bit exaggerating because, actually, you can't hear your heart pounding from that distance, right?
