Ade pondang litah jalang / A pondan just crossed the road

We're in the car, when suddenly dad saw a snake slithering on the road, later he said,

"cewe lekar litah jale" (a 'cewe leka' just crossed the road)

'cewe lekar' is of course the snake in some old trengganu speak that I never heard of. Dad later ask us to guess what a cewe lekar is.

My nephew answered....."pondan"

of many things that can be related to cewe and lekar respectively, that is the first thing that comes to Nazmi's mind!

Hmmmph, Dok Tahu Nok Royak Gapo......
