Examples:
> At any rate, you (two) have a child, so you might as well get married.
> The prices for watches are pretty low in Hong Kong.
> He's very good at climbing./He's always beating around the bush.
> Whenever I'm with you, it seems as if we're always going from one thing to another.
> I've just heard the news.
Proverbs:
> Like the crotch of an aristocratic woman.
Women of the wealthy elite in old Palau would be tattooed up the entire leg and about the thighs and hips. Reference is to the black color of such tattooing and the phrase may be applied to any dark occasion, but usually to dark clouds.
> She's like the clams at Murael, lying face up (and open) and asking for news.
i.e., she just sits at home asking passersby about what's going on outside. Murael is a reef near Ngerechelong where, as elsewhere in Palau, the various kinds of tradacna shell bask, open and feeding, in the shallow lagoon. The saying applies to gullibility combined with high curiosity for news and to persons who simply sit at home, letting the happenings of the community come to them via passing persons.
> Like the honey bee, celebrating without first boiling down the coconut syrup.
Once coconut syrup, dripping from the cut flower stem, is collected it is thickened by boiling. The honeybee, however, collects his nectar, puts it in the hive without boiling it, then proceeds to fly around noisily as though celebrating the completed task. Hence, to talk or boast loudly about successes and accomplishments when one has none; to make plans but never carry them out; to celebrate without cause.
> You're like the old man of Ngerechelong who uses a cloud to mark the location of his fishtrap.
i.e. you depend too much on people who are unreliable.
> Like the Bilimbi tree which, if not shaken, will not bear fruit.
Applied to a person who does not fulfill their obligations without constant prodding or nagging.
More Examples:
> Honey, cant you pound some taro so we could eat?
> We can say they're like sardines without heads in a can.
> Be honest and say you don't want to go instead of going and then regretting it.
> Dont mess with the spotted eagle ray when you go fishing as they are sacred.
> Do you want to have lunch or dinner sometime?
