Gostan Sikit

Indian Navy Submarine photographed docking at Porto Malai. The mooring process  involved many crew members on the bridge and conning tower. There were lots of shouting back and forth, probably due to the unfamiliar territory and unconventional berth.

Now; where is our famous ‘jaga kereta’ with the dirty rag when we need him? The local word “gostan’ (reverse) would come in handy here as it originates from “go astern” in sailing terminology.

Gostan sikit. Lagi, lagi… Oooooop! (hand bangs back of submarine).
