Fira: (SLOW) Aduh, handphoneku jatuh. Kacanya pecah. huhu.. (Regular) Aduh, handphoneku jatuh. Kacanya pecah. huhu..

Fira: (SLOW) Aduh, handphoneku jatuh (REGULAR) Aduh, handphoneku jatuh
Becky: Then comes the phrase "The glass is broken; sad.."
Fira: Kacanya pecah, huhu.
Becky: The first word has the suffix…
Fira: nya…
Becky: ...which refers to the phone mentioned in the previous sentence, so that the noun can be understood as “the glass of the phone” even though you don’t say “of the phone.” Listen again - "The glass is broken; sad" is...
Fira: (SLOW) Kacanya pecah, huhu. (REGULAR) Kacanya pecah, huhu.
Becky: All together, it's "Ouch, my cellphone fell. The glass is broken; sad."
Fira: Aduh, handphoneku jatuh. Kacanya pecah. huhu..
