- to recount something
Sing dadi orahang.[example 1]
Literally: you may not say that you must not talk about the fact that you had a good dream that predicted that you would get something nice, because, if you do tell others, you won't get the thing. So, people often discuss bad dreams, but never good ones.
Baca, petek, lan orahang: Besik, dua, telu, papat, lima.[example 2]
Read, count, and say: One, two, three, four, five.
- Fred Eiseman Jr, Proverbs. 1987
