“Don’t eat” sign is still make sense than “Don’t smoke” or “No smoking” sign. That is installed in smoking room, right? I think the room want to take “revenge” to dining room where commonly installed “Dilarang Merokok” or “No smoking” sign.

I posted the picture as a response to Belinda’s interest in learning Indonesian. If I were to be walking around in a city slash country slash area that was very foreign to me and the only language I mastered was English but it wasn’t used in the country, I’d learn first from such signs and symbols.
