This clip is taken from a movie called Ada Apa Dengan Cinta 1. This movie was released in the year 2002 and was a big hit movie when it was released. Let's watch it below.


The conversation in the scene with English translation is as follows.

Alya: Kenapa, Ta? (What’s wrong, Ta?)

Cinta: Tulis, Mil! Cowo yang namanya Rangga adalah cowo yang, yang sombong banget, sengak ngga karuan, belagu banget. Pokoknya jenis cowo yang nyebelin yang harus kita jauhin. Tulis di buku curhat. (Write this, Mil! A boy named Rangga is a boy that is very arrogant, very cocky, and bigheaded boy. He's the kind of boy that we need to avoid. Write this in the burn book.)

Milly: Oh, di buku curhat ya, Ta? (Oh, in the burn book, Ta?)

In the scene, Cinta asked Rangga for an interview because he won the poem competition, but Rangga refused it. The way he refused the interview made Cinta cross. That's why when Cinta went to her friends, she vented her frustrations about Rangga to her friends.
