What does "bakat sedan" mean?

The other day I came over the mini-sentence/phrase/clause/name "bakat
sedan". That's gotta be Bahasa Indonesia I thought, or Tagalog or
something. Unfortunately I don't have access to good dictionaries for
either of those, or other (CV)CVC-languages, though I found a travellers
phrasebook that got me as close as "bakar sedang" though, meaning
'burning', 'while' or something like that.

I therefore ask you lot: what could it possibly mean in any of those
neat, eastern languages? Since this is conlang I'll go even further,
what could it mean in your conlangs? I've already collected what I can
from my end, so happy guessing!
