Usage Examples

Buka patapan alune: ngandelang ikuh.
[example 1]
(proverb) Like a lizard meditating; it depends upon its tail. A lizard often stands perfectly still, as if meditating. When something comes by that it can eat, the Balinese think that it kills the prey by hitting with its tail, rather like crocodile. This is said of a prostitute.
