Yoi In Movie Clips

The first clip is taken from an FTV movie called Pacar Jago Dagang. Let's watch the clip below.


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

Kania: Gilang!

Gilang: Eh, yayang aku. Aku pikir kamu udah pulang. (Eh, hi, my honey bunny sweetie. I thought you’ve already left for home.)

Kania: Kamu ke mana? (Where are you going to?)

Gilang: Aku.. aku mau ke luar sebentar. (I.. I’m going to go outside for a while.)

Kania: Pasti kamu mau beli dagangan lagi. (You must be going to buy things to sell, right?)

Gilang: Ee.. Yoi. Kamu yang paling tahu tentang aku. (Yup. You know me best.)

In this scene, Kania was Gilang's girlfriend, and she guessed where Gilang would go. And her guess was right, that's why Gilang said [yoi], which means [yes].


Vocabulary from the scene

[Yayang] has the same meaning as [sayang], which means [my love].

[Aku] is informal for I.

[Pikir] = to think.

[Udah] is short for [sudah]. In conversational Indonesian, it is common to drop letters or words, like in this clip.

[Kamu ke mana?], this sentence is grammatically incorrect. It is supposed to be [kamu mau ke mana?]. She dropped the word [mau] in this sentence. [Kamu mau ke mana] is usually said if you want to know where is somebody is going to go.

[Sebentar] = a short while.

[Pasti] = certain, but in this context, the word [pasti] is used when you are very sure about something. For example: 

1. Pasti kamu belum makan, kan? (I bet you haven't eaten yet, right?)

2. Pasti kamu cape banget, kan? (You must be very tired, aren't you?)

Conversation from the scene with English translations is as follows.

Dikta: Yoi! Ini namanya camper van. (Yes! It's called a camper van.)

In this scene, Dikta asked his best friend Sheila to join him on a trip to explore beautiful places in Indonesia. They will explore beautiful places in Indonesia by car.

So, I think that's all for now. I hope this article helpful, and if I find another scene from a movie where this word [yoi] is spoken, Insha Allah, I'm going to update this article again. Bye now.
