Background:
Orangie en Nij Nij went out to visit a friend in Almere.
Suddenly a storm came and the wind blew over Orangie.
He is catching so much wind because of his hight, and the tiny Nij Nij immediately finds a spot to hide.

Which phrase might Nij Nij say to tease Orangie in Dutch?
Nij Nij: Hoge bomen vangen veel wind! (Big trees catch much wind!)

• Hoge bomen = Big trees
• Vangen = Catch

Note:
Hoge bomen vangen veel wind! = Big trees catch much wind! (In Chinese: “樹大招風”, “人怕出名豬怕肥”)
