Da’s ook toevallig!

Da's ook toevallig!

If you walk into somebody in a place where you didn’t expect him, you say:
Hé, dat is toevallig!
Hé, dat is toevallig
What a coincidence!
It also can be used ironically, when it isn’t really a surprise or if there is something fishy about it ….

Dat is wel heel toevallig
Dat is wel heel toevallig
Well, well, what a coincidence…

We also use this word for ‘incidentally’ :
Weet iemand toevallig waar Jan is gebleven?
Weet iemand toevallig waar Jan is gebleven
Does anybody incidentally know where Jan has gone?
