"Ena klei, to allo yellai". One (thing) crys, the other laughs.

Used in situation whereby when by perfecting or improving something, you make another thing seem very inferior.

For example, when renovating a room.

You change the wall paper, and then the floor coverings look tatty and neglected.

You have made the wall paper laugh, but then the floor coverings cry.

"Ena klei, to allo yellai". One (thing) crys, the other laughs.
