Proverbs:
> It's like the coconut syrup maker of Ngesebei, who ladled out of a half-filled container to keep another overflowing.
i.e. it's a deceptive display of wealth
> Like the man who made coconut syrup in Ngesebei, dipping from half-filled containers to keep one overflowing.
Pertains to a situation which may have occurred in Ngesebei, a small hamlet in Ngardmau (northern Palau): a coconutsyrup specialist always kept one coconutshell container full and in sight of guests, who, thus, would think that all of his containers were full. The idiom applies to any pointed display of opulence. It's a deceptive display of wealth.
> It's like the coconut syrup of Ngetkib, which mixes all by itself.
He has married within his own clan.
> Like the ilaot [coconut juice] of Ngetkib, mixing itself.
Probably of folk-tale derivation, the idiom may be applied to a man who has married too close to his own clan, thus not gaining the assistance of the wife's clan in food and services, since this would amount to the clan giving to itself. Also applied to a situation where a person expects to have some service performed for him but ends up doing it himself.
