There is one special word in the above list that is a common word used by our elders for cheek. The word used is 'CHOKKAY" or "COKAY". In the Javanese dialect "COKET" means to dab lightly; and perhaps the word "COKAY" may have derived from this, as our Ancestors were brought by the Dutch from Batavia.

Another word that was commonly used by our elders is "LAMBUNG" which means side. "Lambung kiri saya sakit" - The left hand side of my body is paining".
