Usage Examples

Cara dadalune kampid baan nyilih.
[example 1]
[proverb] Like the “dadalu” borrowing wings. A “dadalu” is a kind of ant-like insect that swarms in large clusters on just a few night of the year at the end of the dry season. When the swarming occurs, each insect drops its wings on the ground, and there are great piles of them. It is said that the “dadalu” borrows its wings and then leaves them behind after a short time. This expression is used to refer to a person who borrows something from someone else in such a way that others will think it is his own property and not borrowed. It is also used when you really do have something nice and you do not want others to know that you actually own it, but, rather want them to think that it is borrowed.
