G.E.D.I.K

Herm... to begin with, I'm really not sure why I want to write on this.. Maybe because I have too much time...tired of reading or just feel like blogging...Anyway..I'm probably just curious... I heard... some people say.. "orang cute/cantik/lawa/handsome, 'gedik' tak apa..kalau hodoh 'gedik' org meluat"...

First of all, as far as I'm concerned 'gedik' according to Kamus Dewan 4th edition means
bp = tergedik-gedik lincah (bkn gadis); bergedik-gedik bergerak-gerak, terketar-ketar; menggedik-gedikkan menggerak-gerakkan (bahagian badan spt kaki dll sewaktu mengelamun); kegedikan keadaan (sifat) gedik: ~ tubuh badannya yg montok.

But I suppose, the word 'gedik' in daily conversation carries wider meaning than that.. correct me if I'm wrong..maybe it means..overacting, mengada-ngada, terhegeh-hegeh, melampau, terlebih manja,flirty etc... but whatever it means, it's negative... right?!

So.. is the statement above true?

I would say.. aesthetic sensibility usually gives special consideration towards beautiful things/people... so, maybe.. just maybe... misbehavior such as' gedik' is acceptable if the 'penggedik' is good looking...

BUT....
I wish I could make the font larger..

Good characters/behaviors beautify oneself... so, lets drop the gedik part and behave ourselves with great calmness :)

Nevertheless, 'gedik' is not really negative if it's used in the original context... as in, with the original meanings...

So.. I don't know.. whoever read this.. what do u think?
