UINAH! SABAH SLANG BAH!

Thursday, November 25, 2010 |
ONLY IN SABAH, My dear Tobpinai
These are some of the the local phrases and exclamations I have grown up with and fallen in love with. Ahhh...the thick , guttural accent we have,  priceless....SO feel free to add on if i missed anything out my fellow Sabahans. After all...

URANG SABAH BAH KITA NI!


Occupation : kalaja

THERE (far away,also applicable to a place more than 10 steps away) : Saaaaaaaaaana

LATER(more than 5 minutes later):Naaaaaaaaaanti/
sikaaaaaaarang!

toothpaste : KULGIT (@colgate in sabahan slang)

how would I know : manaaaa la sia tau?

Lie : tambirang

Go: pigi
Maybe : Mangkali

Butt : PANTAT(use this discreetly when in West Malaysia because apparently it is a VERY DIRTY WORD there...no pun intended)

School : SIKUL

Lopsided : MIRING


Ugly : BIDA!

Slap : Tampiling


No Need ::ta'usah/tosah

DAMN IT!: SILAKAK!

You’re really  Good : Champiiiinnnnn o kau ni!

Buddy : Ging

Chase : Bubut

Cigarette : SIGUP


OK!: Bah /MmmmmmBahhh/ Bah bah bah!

Serves you right : Koto!

Table : Mija

Chicken : Manuk

You : KO

Me : SIA/ SHYA

Them : DURANG

rape : Gintak (to learn about how this word came to be please refer to:
I don’t care : Paduli!

Drink (alcohol) : Moghinum

When referring to someone dumb or stupid this expression is used with extreme passion: O’DOIIII DOGO!

Cheers! : ARAMAITIIIIIIIIIII!!!( the louder a person says this, the drunker he is)

You all : Kamurang

OMG: ATUKOI !

Always : TATAP!

Beside : SIRING

 short and muscular : Pindik-pindik TAGAP
James Bond : JimSH BOON

Spiderman : Spaidumin

KL @Kuala Lumpur : KEY EEEL


If people won't accept food offered, This will be the typical retort : Kapunan ko nanti! (which means you’ll get bad luck for not eating, the quickie solution to this is to at least TOUCH the food)


Then there is a classic and overused phrase you will ONLY hear in good ol’ Sabah.

BULIH BAH KALO KAU! ( translate : of course!)

Where the Fun at?

EMBRACE YOUR THICK ACCENTS  YO SABAHANS!
TALK LOUD AND PROUD AND DO NOT FEEL ASHAMED.
 Not even if you win Akademi Fantasia or something and start working in KEY EEL.
so if you hear people asking, " ape bende u cakap nie???" You say , " SHYA CAKAP BAHSA SABAH LA BAH!" Ok People???

SAY WHAT???

BULIH BA KALO KAU!

WSB : WITTY, SEXY, BOOMBASTIC
             WACKY, SASSY, BODACIOUS!
