Hi! I hope you and your family are safe. I have 2 things I would like to know. What does the expression means "zombi mandé gouté, li pa mandé rété". And what does "abolotcho" means? Have a good one!!! Thanks

Thanks. You be safe too.
"Zonbi goute sèl li pa mande rete" - Once you get a taste of something good, you can't stop doing it.
(The back story is that zonbies do not eat salt, that's why they remain zonbies. But once they get a taste of something salty, then they realize that they've been missing out on being real human :)

Abolotcho - trouble, grief, or you are curse, also could mean a troublemaker
