So, without further ado. Let's talk about this.


Meaning of Jadi Ngga Enak In the Indonesian Language

Let's translate this phrase word for word first before I give you the real meaning of [jadi ngga enak]. [Jadi] means to become, and [ngga] means no, and [enak] means tasty or delicious.

So, [jadi ngga enak] in literal translations means to become not tasty. Weird, and doesn't make any sense, right?

[Jadi ngga enak] is usually said when you feel guilty about your friend because of something. You feel bad because you always ask for help from them and bother them.

You will understand more when you watch examples from the movies I gave you here because you will see the context, and it will make more sense to you.


How to Pronounce Jadi Ngga Enak

Here is how you pronounce [jadi ngga enak].

Next, let's watch examples from movies where the phrase [jadi ngga enak] is used by the Indonesian people


Examples of Jadi Ngga Enak In Use

The first scene we are about to watch is taken from a movie called Garis Waktu (2022). Let's watch the clip below.


Below is the conversation from the scene with English translations.

April: Kira-kira lama ngga ya, mas? (Is this gonna take a while?)

Dika: Ya, bisa berasa lama sih, kalo ngga sabar. Buru-buru ya, mba? (It could feel like a long time if you are impatient. Are you in a rush?)

April: Aduh. Maaf ya mas, saya jadi ngga enak. (Oh. I'm sorry, I feel bad.)

Dika: Enakin aja, mba. (Don’t be.)

In this scene, April gets a flat tire and has to pull over on the street. She can't change the tire herself, and then suddenly, a man comes and helps her change her tire. Dika is a stranger that April meets on the street.

April here feels guilty because she just bothers that person for changing her tire. This is common in Indonesia to think like this, feeling guilty for making someone do something for us. We usually don't want to bother people, and when they come for help, we feel bad and guilty because we have bothered them.

April says this to Dika,

Maaf ya mas, saya jadi ngga enak.

First, April apologizes to Dika because she is bothering him. Dika could have continued his journey and not had to stop to help April, and that's why April feels guilty for bothering Dika.

And then Dika replies with,

Enakin aja, mba.

Which means she does not need to feel guilty about it. It's okay with him to help her change the tire. [Enakin aja] literally means just make it tasty.
