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.
