- general term for any of several beans, bean pods, peas or lentils that are commonly boiled and eaten as vegetables
Kacang suba wayah.
Literally: "nuts are already old"; meaningless except that it is a sort of funny code for: "basang suba layah", meaning "my stomach is hungry."
Meme ngidih kacang teken tiang.[example 1]
She requests nuts from me.
