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?)
