Explanation:
hmm...not enough context here (and certainly not enough commas ;). My guess is 'no, it's the picture of the first house. oh..I forget the address.'

it's not "neng" that draw the house on the first time, i forget the adress


Explanation:
it's blurry between "draw the first house" or "draw the house on the first time"

but as far as i could catch the meaning is :
"its not neng (name of person) that draw the first house, aih (slang / expression of shocked) i forget the address "cing" (cing refer to the slang to call a person in youth way)
or
"its not neng that drew the house on the first time, i forget "the address"

alamatnya = alamat + nya
-nya can refer to "the house" or something else that mentioned on previous conversation.

ex:
anak pintar itu alamatnya dimana ?
-Where's the address of that smart kid? (assume looking for a note that contain address of the smart kid)
-What's the address of that smart kid ? (assume to ask the addres of the smart kid)

another example :
"John, kemarin mira bilang dia lupa alamatnya pak Kasdi!"
-"John, Yesterday Mira told me that she's forget Mr Kasdi's address"

No, Neng, not that one. I meant the first house in the picture. Oopps, I forget the address, fella.


Explanation:
I break the sentence like this:

Bukan, Neng. Yang gambar rumah pertama. Aih, gue lupa alamatnya, cing!

"Neng" is then a name (of a girl), or simply a calling for a girl (like, in English, "dude" for a boy). "Aih" is an exclamation, whilst "cing" is kinda "dude" or "fella" in English.

Supposed it is a name of a girl. Then, it becomes:

No, Neng, it's not. I mean the first house in the picture. Oopps, I forget the address, fella.
