Indonesians will never get lost in Holland

Being in the Netherlands for six weeks, I noticed many similarities between Indonesia and Holland. Of course it has something to do with both countries’ past. Some roads are called Javalaan and Lombok, islands in Indonesia. Indonesian food such as nasi goreng, mi goreng, sambal oelek and many others can easily be found in supermarket. Words like gratis, handoek, koffer (koper in Bahasa Indonesia) mean exactly the same. bear in mind, Indonesians, you will never get lost in the Netherlands!

See the word "makelaar" there? haha.
