BEDEK/ACTION BEDEK/BEDEK KACANG (Contributed by Lixing)
A Malay word meaning "to aim at", it is used to describe someone who is acting dishonestly or disingenuously, or who is full
of hot air, or who pretends to be capable but is in reality a failure. Can also be used as a verb in the sense of "to bluff" or
"mislead". Tagging on "action" or "kacang" (peanuts) is merely for emphasis.
1. "Oi, you make sure you can really do it, ah! Don't anyhow bedek me, okay!"
2. “I saw you pontang school today, you don’t come and bedek kacang with me, okay?” (I saw you playing truant today,
don’t you act innocent with me!)
3. ""Wah! That S-League player really want to score, sia! But open goal still can fall down! So action bedek one, man!"
