[quote=GUEST21130,35861]2. 临时抱佛脚 (lin 2 shi 2 bao 4 fo 2 jiao 3) Someone just translated it word by word: "When the trouble comes, we embrace the feet of the Buddha." In fact, it means "Worship God just in times of adversity." We can scold a student by"平时不努力，临时抱佛脚. (pin 2 shi 2 bu 4 nu 3 li 4, lin 2 shi 2 bao 4 fo 2 jiao 3)" . That means the student didn't work hard everyday, and just prepare the exams before it.[/quote]
