På'guan means "to give off a scent."  Its root word is pao (scent).

I was speaking with an elderly lady about a possible event.  She told me she wasn't sure if it was really going to happen, but she said, "Påpå'guan!"

Sometimes you walk into a kitchen and you can't be exactly sure what it is you are smelling; what food was cooked.  But you can be sure that something was cooked.  Why?  Because the room is giving off an odor - påpå'guan.

In the same way, we can't always be sure about some event or some news, but we see signs, there are some clues, something in the air - like an odor.  Påpå'guan.
