Preparing for the wedding

A1: How is it with your daughter, sir? Is she willing?
B1: Maybe she is willing, because when I asked her she was just silent.
A2: If that’s the case, may be she is willing. How much money do we need to collect?
B2: Because we can’t forget our customs, and if you agree, I ask for one million rupiahs, two carabao and five sacks of rice.
A3: Is there nothing else which you ask for?
B3: There is nothing else.
A4: If so, then we are able to meet your requests. Therefore, when can we carry out the festivities?
B4: If there are no obstacles, later once Lebaran is over.
A5: Okay. It’s all worked out.
