English term or phrase:'kissing is a sign that we're holding back'
I need to know the translation of malay for the phrase 'holding back'
Explanation: the key word that is in doubt is 'holding back' hence the sentence is trying to portray kissing is being held in abeyance.therefore in a malay environment kissing in public is taboo and any translation in respect of that has to be made in a mild manner hence 'tidak dipamerkan' sound more relevent.
