Raya 2008 : Cha- lusI was walking to the nearby surau at my auntie's house in Sagil, Johore, a lovely village located at the foot of Gunung Ledang when I bumped into this little boy with a panic face by the road.
Close up view, from the same pic below. Did he look fierce?
I asked him what was wrong. He answered: My bike "cha-lus..."
OMG I used that very word when I was a kid! And it has been almost 20 years I have not heard the word. Cha-lus is the word used by Javanese kids, meaning the bike's chain thas gotten dislocated.
