"gao bu chua" is a kind of snake... usually address to those people CMI
"boi leng get leng", I am not sure about this..... It maybe saying "can't be Dragon, act like dragon"

My hokkian standard is not much better than my England so maybe I am wrong.... Embarassed

"gao bu chua, boi leng get leng"

gao bu chua: this type of lizard always stick their neck up to see what's happening at the slightest sound/noise around them, even it has nothing to do with it. In otherwords it means
BUSY BODY

boi leng get leng" : not smart but try to be smart. In golf it means ones can't even play well and yet trying to teach or correct another golfer's problem.
