my dent nose


Explanation:
I think the writing should be "hidung saya kemik" The reason why I didn't write "my flat nose" because in dictionary kimek/kemek means "dent" but sometimes people used the words "flat" when describing someone with a flat nose in a conversation. But, I was wonder "hidung yang kemek, what to do with syarikat yang membekal barang? Don't get it. But I hope this help.

I am not good looking/pretty.


Explanation:
"Hidung saya kemek" is just a polite way of being modest and saying "I am not good looking/pretty". Normally in response to a date proposal.

Where else, the next sentence (maybe further description of the person);

"My company supplies goods."
