While we wait for the series to drop, we’ve come to realise that adjectives can be used to describe a person, but as Malaysians, nothing works better than a perfectly written peribahasa that perfectly encapsulates the personality (or lack thereof) of a character.
Money Heist boasts an assembly of characters that we love and those that we love to hate. From the smartypants to the rebel and the loveable (yet violent) teddy bear, every minute with La Banda will keep you on the edge of your seat. Get to know the most unforgettable personalities in Money Heist through these 5 Malaysian proverbs.
Harapkan Pagar, Pagar Makan Padi
Translation: When you depend on someone to get the task done but they end up messing things up
Yes, we know you know. One of the most familiar plotlines in the series would be Tokyo’s rebellious nature, which often puts a dent in the Professor’s plans. But can we really blame her for being super in tune with her emotions?
Want more of Tokyo? Catch a glimpse of her around the Federal Highway, Publika, MRR2, and Jalan Maarof at the end of this month!
Umpama Buah Kepayang, Dimakan Mabuk, Dibuang Sayang
Translation: Someone that you absolutely love but is destructible
Rio is crazy in love with Tokyo and would do anything to keep her around despite her hot-headedness and impulsiveness. To some, their love is toxic, but to others, #couplegoals.
Sepandai-Pandai Tupai Melompat, Akhirnya Jatuh Ke Tanah Juga
Literal translation: Clever clever squirrel jump, in the end falls to the ground also
Proper translation: No matter how well you excel at something, you will falter at times
Even the Professor knows that there isn’t a perfect plan. As much as he tried to anticipate all possible scenarios that could happen and prepare for them, there were times that he too had been caught off-guard and had to improvise his way out. Case in point: Lisbon.
Psst: We’re not supposed to reveal this but we’ve heard the Professor will be out of hiding soon. Spot him at your favourite malls such as Zenith Mall (JB), Ipoh Parade (Ipoh), and Komtar (Penang). He’ll also be popping up in Seremban, Kuantan, and Kuala Terengganu!
