Kuai Bilai and Belangkas

Brunei Malay Words I learned.

Kuai Bilai – Aimlessly, Purposelessly.

Heard this from the mufti’s lecture on the radio, went and ask, found out it meant without purpose. The mufti was saying that the syariah law would hinder the youth from roaming around aimlessly or without purpose.

Belangkas – Horshoe crab

Heard this used to describe a couple with one of them being possessive or over controlling. apparently it is either to describe the couple is together very close, or negatively to a couple that is being over controlled by the other half. looked up the picture and found out one picture which made sense. apparently they are usually seen as paired up, rarely by themselves.
