How to respond to, "Is this chair taken?" in Melayu?
Often, while in a coffee shop in Kuala Lumpur, someone will approach me and ask if this chair is taken (like if you are at a small table with 2 chairs by yourself and they want to take the spare chair). I usually reply with tidak, but I would also like to say something additional like, "You may have the chair". No Google translate and feel free to change the wording to something that is usually said in this situation. In other words, no need to directly translate.
