Indonesian Accent??

I happened to talk to a primary school girl last week in the bookstore. I taught her how to use price-tagger. Surprisingly, she laughed. “What is so funny?” I was confused. The more I taught her, the more she laughed. Her big sister who was nearby then told me, “I guess it’s because of your accent.”

Well, my accent..? Honestly speaking, I am very proud of my Indonesian accent simply because it sounds more professional, especially whenever I give presentation. However, I once listened to my own voice in a video: it sounds like Javanese accent although it was not my intention “-_- (I am from Java Island, by the way).

Hmm, at last I managed to make a little girl laugh. I will talk to her again when her big sister brings her to bookstore.
