Menyambung buka sepite.[example 1]
Family like a sepit. (Proverb) A sepit is a pair of bamboo “tweezers”. There is one mother, the whole sepit, and two children, the two parts. This is said when someone gets mad at his only brother, for example. The idea is that there are only two people in the family, so peace and welfare should be preserved, considering the small size of the family.
- F. Eiseman, Proverbs. 1987
