Bahasa (2) - Same or similar words ...

We have a few same words, I might help you, especially when they are food related :)
Some of them are foreign words that were absorbed to Bahasa Indonesia, some of them might be the other way around, maybe ... I am not too sure about that.

mangga = mango
rambutan = rambutan
durian = durian
pepaya = papaya
kari = curry

es krim = ice cream
kopi = coffee --> es kopi = ice coffee
teh = tea --> es teh = ice tea

Can you see the pattern from the words above?

donat = donut
sup = soup
saus = sauce
