Proverbs:
> You're like a floating log without a resting place.
You have no fixed abode.
> Like the uul [Cettria cantans?] with its house open, calling for rain.
The uul may be heard to call out usually just before it rains; some say that it is calling for rain. This seems foolish, since the bird constructs its house with an opening at the top that will let rain in. A person who makes a decision or starts some action without adequate preparation is likened to the uul.
> You're getting involved with someone too closely related.
Possibly derived from an incident in which a coconut syrup maker was incestuously involved with his wife's sister.
More Examples:
> I'm so worried about these big trees by the house if they would break and crush us.

> There are 8 people in my family.
> The area for steaming/cooking taro and tapioca is at the back of the house.
