can anyone break this one down for me? what does 'apa' mean alone? and what does 'kabar' mean on its own?

'Apa' alone means 'what' in general .

As for 'kabar' alone, in English will be something like 'news' . Example: 'tidak ada kabar' means no news.

Hope it helps.

Apa = what Kabar = news or report

Apa kabar? = how are you? Kabar apa? or kabar apa itu? = what's the news? Apa itu kabar? = what news is?
