agree  yam2u: the correct spelling is 'vengeance' though

disagree  Ramona Ali: balas dendam is to take revenge (verb)

  -> I agree technically but in practical usage 'balas dendam' is both a verb-like and noun-like. Properly one should say pembalasan dendam ~ taking revenge, but again people often don't follow the rules about transformation.
