Why you have to say tidak (no) you are welcome . Is this person welcome or not???? I know that the indonesian people are very kindly but I never hear tidak, sama- sama. Someone can explain it? If you say yes, you are welcome.(yo, sama- sama or better ya, selamat datang) I would except it??????

'you are welcome' in this case refers to the answer to 'thank you' Not actual 'selamat datang'.

Nevertheless: weird sentence indeed

No, you're welcome!

Does it really mean something along the lines of 'Not at all, you're welcome'?
