The Meaning of Cakep In the Indonesian Language

[Cakep] is the colloquial form of [cakap]. [Cakep] can have many meanings. Some of the word [cakep] meanings are nice, pretty, having the ability to do something, harmonious, and smart.

I will give you a real-life example of how the word [cakep] is used from movie clips so that you will easily understand the meaning and how the word [cakep] is used.


How to Pronounce Cakep

Let's hear how to pronounce [cakep] down below.

Next, let's watch scenes from movies where the word [cakep] is spoken.


Examples of Cakep In Use

In this section, I will gather examples I found from movies, videos, comics, and whatnot where this word [cakep] is spoken.

The first scene is taken from a web series called Jejak Rasa, Episode 1. Let's watch the clip down below.

Conversation in the scene with English translations is as follows.

Dikta: Jadi, gue mo ngajak loe jalan-jalan ke tempat-tempat paling oke di Indonesia pake camper van ini. (So, I want to take you to travel to the most exciting place in Indonesia using this camper van.)

Sheila: Cakep! Suka nih gue, jalan-jalan. Ntar kita nginep di mana nih tapi? Di hotel? (Awesome! I love this. I love traveling. But, where will we be staying? At a hotel?)

Dikta: Kok di hotel sih? Di sini! Tuh udah gue siapin tuh di belakang. Keren! Paling nyaman.. (Why hotel? In here! I've got it ready on the back of this camper van. It's cool! The most comfortable...)

Sheila: Serius? (Seriously?)

Dikta: Iyalah! Nanti loe tidur di sini, gue tidur di tenda. (Yes, I'm serious! You will be sleeping in here, and I'll be sleeping in a tent.)

In the scene, Dikta and Sheila are best friends. Dikta wants to take Sheila, his best friend, on a trip to Indonesia's most exciting place. Sheila loves to travel, that's why she replied with,

Cakep! Suka nih gue, jalan-jalan.

[Cakep] in this context means great, awesome, nice. [Suka nih gue] means that she really loves it. [Jalan-jalan] is to travel.


Vocabulary From the Scene

[Mo] is the colloquail form of [mau]. It means to want something.

[Ngajak] is the colloquial form of [mengajak]. It means to invite.

[Loe] is an informal form for [Anda] = you. For more information about this, you can read my article Loe Meaning In the Indonesian Language.

[Jalan-jalan] = traveling, to walk around.

[Tempat] = place.

[Pake] is the colloquial form of [pakai] = to use.

[Gue] is an informal form for [saya] = I. For more information about this, you can read my article, Gue Meaning In the Indonesian Language.

[Ntar] is the colloquial form of [nanti] = later. Ntar kita nginep di mana?(colloquial) = Nanti kita akan menginap di mana?(formal) = Where will we be staying?

[Nginep] is the colloquial form of [menginap] = to stay.

[Udah] is short for [sudah]. We usually say [udah] instead of [sudah] in our daily conversation.

[Siapin] in informal for [siapkan] = to prepare. Udah gue siapin untuk loe.(informal) = Sudah saya siapkan untuk Anda.(formal) = I have prepared it for you. 

[Keren] = cool, awesome, wicked.

[Tidur] = to sleep.

The second scene is taken from a movie titled 3 Hari Untuk Selamanya (2007). Let's watch the clip below.

Conversation from the scene with English translations is as follows.

Yusofa: Edwina! (Edwina!)

Edwina: Yusofa! Wih! Cakep! Ya udah, santai dulu gih. Ya? (Yusofa! Wow! This is good! Just wait here and chilling for a while. Okay?)

Yusofa: Sip. (Okay.)

Edwina: Bentar ya? (Just a sec.)

Yusofa just handed down to his friend, Edwina, the drawing that he made for him. Edwina then looked at the drawing and said, "Cakep!" which in this context means [good].


Vocabulary From the Scene

[Ya udah] is usually spoken to end a conversation. For more about this, you can read this article, Ya Udah in the Indonesian Language.

[Wih!] is usually spoken when you are amazed by something.

[Santai dulu gih] is usually spoken to someone when he has to wait for a while. For example, your friend comes to your house and then you, at the moment, are still doing something. You then say to him, "Santai dulu gih," which means to ask him to wait until you finish doing what you are doing. In literal meaning, [santai dulu gih] means [just relax for a short while].

[Bentar ya] is short for [sebentar ya], is usually used to ask someone to wait for a short while.

So, I think that's all for now. If you have any questions regarding this, just leave them in the comment section down below, and I'll be happy to answer them.

Thank you for reading my article, and if I find another scene where the word [cakep] is spoken, Insha Allah, I will update this article again. Bye now.
