Buka bukit johin; luwung pengenahne.[example 1]
Like a hill seen from afar; nice looking. “Pengenahne” comes from “ngenah”, meaning “scene”, or nice-looking. This is the “grass looks greener on the other side of the fence” proverb, and it means the same as the Western saying.
- F. Eiseman, Proverbs. 1987
