Usage Examples

Apake anak ulung nyaup luu? Nangka!
[example 1]
What is that, when it falls down, grabs garbage? Jackfruit! [riddle] Nangka is fruit covered with protrusions. If the fruit falls to the ground, any trash or leaves, etc., that is falls upon will stick to these protrusions, and thus it would appear that the fruit has reached out and “grabbed” the trash.
