Ayam Bakar

During my first trip to Bandung, I was sitting at a restaurant in a kampong. I didn't see any dishes I recognized and little was in English. The waiter came up to me and said ayam bakar. I responded with hi Bakar, I am MJ and my friend busted up laughing. She said his name is not Bakar and I argued with her that he just told me his name is Bakar. She never lets me forget that.

Mixing languages is always fun, isn't it?-) BUT, let's not forget the embarrassing moments...

And what did the waiter say? Let me guess! "Maaf, kami tidak melayani ayam emji" (Sorry we do not serve ayam emji)
