- to have flowers
Ngewaluh mabunga di jit.
"Having a gourd (or squash or pumpkin) with a flowery bottom." Vivid image of showing off one's butt as if it was something beautiful. Bottoms of such fruits/vegetables are plain with nothing to see, so this means real arrogance. It's like the English, "Loving the smell of one's own farts."
Ngewaluh mabunga di jit.[example 1]
Literally: Like a drinking gourd that has flowers on the bottom. Bragging.
