selamat pagi


Explanation:
Good morning = selamat pagi.
For those who don't understand Indonesian, the literal translation would mislead into "pagi yang baik" or "pagi yang bagus", but this is in fact a greeting, like:
- good afternoon = selamat siang.
- good evening = selamat malam.
- good night = selamat malam, selamat tidur.
etc.

selamat pagi


Explanation:
good = baik, morning = pagi. However, "good" can not be translated literally into Indonesian since, in this case, it is a greeting expression.
