    HORAS! is a warm greeting in BATAK

    by meiyergani Written Jun 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    HORAS (spelling it HOR and US), is a popular Batak lingo when someone meet another, it was a word of greeting which means HALLO, or Hi. So if you meet the peoples while take a walk and someone say you HORAS, you should reply it with say HORAS, nothing to lose just make a close relationship between one to another
