Shabu Shabu is a delicacy. You dip beef in boiling water in order to cook it. In Cantonese, people say you 'saap' the beef. Another meaning for 'saap' in Cantonese is to be a bit woolly in the head. So Shabu Shabu is slang for being a little slow-minded, being a little unobservant, being a little clumsy, but it is not intended to be strong criticism and is often used amongst friends.
Watch it! You're about to walk into that lamppost! You're so Shabu Shabu.

Watch it! You're about to walk into that lamppost! You're always 'saap haar saap haar'.
