you have to hear them ^_^ that's the uniqueness of Indonesian language, the written language is different from the oral (vernacular) language. It also depends on where you're going to spend your time in Indonesia too. Renata's answer below, for example, mostly used in the capital Jakarta. Different cities use different slang. See also http://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahasa_gaul for more information on "Bahasa gaul" (slang)

hai Luis, pa kabar? if you dont want to sound like a stranger, here is some tips for you Change the word 'saya' to 'aku/gue', 'memang' to 'emang', 'sudah' to 'udah/dah', 'selamat' to 'met', 'tidak' to 'ga', 'semoga' to 'moga', 'saja' to 'aja', and almost (but not all) the words end with '-kan' can be changed to '-in'. ex: 'menemukan' >> 'nemuin' ok, i hope it works ^^
