"Mereka orang tua saya."

Translation:They are my parents.

And what if i just want to point to few old people over there?! "Mereka orang yang tua"? Or just "Mereka orang tua" and people will understand out of context?


Probably because your parents are usually older than you... "orang" means "person", "tua" means "old", I think it makes sense to name parents "my old people"
