When would you use kembali vs pulang?
I'm believe pulang is only used for home. Saya pulang = I go home
The meaning is somewhat different:
Kembali: to return to the original place (not always home).
Pulang: to return HOME or to go home.
So, if this a speech figure, there is no movement implied. Why ke sekolah? Or is it simply mandatory? Tini returns to school on Monday not now, for instance.
