Omani Proverb(s) of the Day

As a new feature of the site, I will post some Omani proverbs in Arabic culled from the web as well a book in the Sultan Qaboos Library's Omani Room. Hope you enjoy them:

For these two I owe Ayna from the Sabla Forums

ماعندها جدر تطبخ وثوبها من الزّري يرطخ

Translation: She doesn't have a pot to cook with, but her dress sparkles with crystals.

ثيابه مصقولة وجيوبه منخولة

Translation: His clothes are fresh and ironed. His pockets are empty.

The connotations of both Proverbs are the same.
