k s) pê n/
  • lonely, lonesome
  • actually means in a place where it is quiet
  • but since Balinese people do not enjoy solitude, but do enjoy noisy, busy places, the word is always interpreted as loney or lonesome, because one is in a place where it is quiet. Quiet places are thought of as being tenget or anker (charged with supernatural power).
