If you want to buy a movie ticket, you can immediately mention a film you will see and number of ticket you will buy, such as the sentence: Saya mau pesan tiket film Gundala untuk dua orang which means ‘I want to buy tickets of Gundala movie for two persons’.

Usually, the ticket officer will see the empty chairs and give a recommendation of movie schedule by saying: Untuk jadwal filmnya, mau pesan tiket yang pukul berapa? Which means‘What time of movie tickets do you want to order?’.

To respond the question, you can say: Ya, saya pesan tiket film yang tayang pukul 4 sore which meansI order movie tickets for the show at 4 o’clock PM’

Other examples:

Ticket officer: Untuk jadwal filmnya, mau pesan tiket yang pukul berapa? Which means ‘What time of movie tickets you want to order?’.

Kevin:  Saya pesan tiket yang tayang pukul dua saja which means ‘I order movie tickets for the show at 2 PM’

Kevin:  Saya mau pesan tiket film Gundala untuk dua orang which means ‘I want to buy tickets of Gundala movie for two persons’.

Ticket officer:  Ya, baik. Kira-kira mau pesan tiket yang tayang pukul berapa? Which means ‘Ok. What time of movie tickets for the show do you want to order?

Kevin:  Saya mau pesan tiket film yang tayang pukul dua saja which means ‘I want to order the movie tickets for the show at 2 PM’.

In the Indonesian language, the precise word to express time is pukul. The word pukul will be followed by numbers and adverb of time such as pagi (morning), siang (afternoon), sore (evening) or malam (night).

For example: Film itu akan tayang pukul 5.00 sore which means ‘the film will play at 5 PM’.

That was “Let’s Speak Bhs Indonesia”, a lesson in Bahasa Indonesia or the Indonesian language on the radio. Hopefully, this edition will be useful for those who want to know more about Bahasa Indonesia.
