Gembira, bahagia, senang
All of these mean "happy" but from what I can gather they are they used in different contexts? Can someone explain in what context I can use each of them? Thanks.
used in different contexts?
Here is a totally different context.... :
Here is an English article with an explanation :
@Nancy757351 ...gembira - intense feeling of happiness or joy but typically lasts for a short time (several hours); laughter when playing or singing with friends ...senang - less intense than gembira but lasts much longer (weeks or months); smile as in when receiving a high mark at school or present from someone ...bahagia - can be as intense as gembira but lasts much longer (years); feeling within "dalam hati" if able to get an ideal job, a dream house ~from several sites on google search
