In the 2011 Olaskia, Jonathan woke up in the morning, ate his homemade breakfast, and drank 4 cups of water. Jonathan discovered some odd riddle-like message in the bottom of his refrigerator, the riddle message was in an obsolete and obscure language and it said:

"Yah Orang-orang undangan ramai,

Galau ramai, angin nak dongeng, mari asal.

Waktu istirahat lama libur.

Domba istirahat enak, Tepuk emas nasi yogut enak abang rasa sapi,

lapar adik, tampilkan enak rasa.

Ndari Wong Abang-Ireng"

What did the riddle actually say? How is it obscure?!

  • Welcome to Puzzling SE! I did some grammar edits, if they mess with you riddle at all just do a rollback and it will go back to the way it was. – gabbo1092 Nov 9 at 17:09
  • What does Olaskia mean? – Sam Harrington Nov 9 at 17:15

Probably, the answer is:

Yah Orang-orang Undangan Ramai,
Galau Ramai, Angin Nak Dongeng, Mari Asal.
Waktu Istirahat Lama Libur.
Domba Istirahat Enak, Tepuk Emas Nasi Yogut Enak Abang Rasa Sapi,
Lapar Adik, Tampilkan Enak Rasa.

YOUR GRANDMA WILL DIE TEN YEARS LATER
Well, is the grammar proper or not?

  • There's one more line... does it mean anything? – SteveV Nov 9 at 17:30

New partial answer based off of @JonathanHalls's answer

Jonathan figuered out:

Based on the initials of the riddle portion, he came up with "YOUR GRANDMA WILL DIE TEN YEARS LATER". But he never figured out how the last sentence relates.

What I figured out:

if you translate the last sentence from Javanese to English, back to Javanese, and back to English again, you get "Investigate people". The riddle is asking for you to find out who is trying to kill your grandma.
