Liep-liep lalipi gadang, mara enjekin ngutil.[example 1]
A green snake with half-closed eyes; if you step on it, it will bite you. [proverb] Liep-liep means with eyes half closed, looking sleepy or dull, or stupid. This is said of someone who looks very stupid, but, if you talk to him you will discover that he knows a great deal about everything.
- F. Eiseman, PROVERBS, 1987
