Ngerebutin balung tan pa isi.
[example 1]
Wanting a bone that is bare. [proverb] Ngerebutin means wanting more than your share; fighting for more than others. Balung tan pa isi, means a bone that is “empty”, i.e. has no meat on it. This is said about a person who fights long and hard to get more than his share of something, but ends up getting nothing. This is considered to be bad, and the Balinese criticize one who does it.
