Ia mejukut dinatah.
[example 1]
He is growing (he has) vegetables in the yard. [proverb] It is common to have a vegetable garden in the house yard. One popular thing to raise is the ‘kelor’ tree [moringa AMP], because its leaves can be cooked as a vegetable, and its beans, ‘kelentang’ are very good as a vegetable. The word for ‘weak’ is ‘elor’ or ‘lelor’. So, if someone wants to say he is weak, he says that he is growing vegetables (kelor) in his garden. ( ‘jukut’ is a dish that can be made with, amongst others, ‘kelor’ leaves. AMP)
