Examples:

Proverbs:
> Like a fish in deep, clear water, eaten only with the eyes.
Fish are not easily caught in clear water. The idiom applies to that which may be admired but not obtained, like an expensive item or another man's beautiful sweetheart.
> You're just like a cat washing yourself.
i.e., you have to do everything yourself because your relatives are neglecting their obligations to you.
> You're like the bisech plant in the backyard which has no purpose.
A person who isn't trusted so he/she is not needed.
> 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.
> 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.
More Examples:
> Honey, cant you pound some taro so we could eat?
> Excluding Ulang seems excessive.
> John is taking too long and his wife is "like a decorated lobster" waiting for him.
> You are like the clam of bengall, never moves an inch but always adored.
> I feel like eating burnt grated casava.
