Usually YABAI is used as a negative meaning. Yabai means that it is not good, or it is dangerous.
However, nowadays, young people often use YABAI as a meaning of very good!
For example, if they taste really delicious sweets, they might say YABAI NE! They mean that
that sweet is really nice! If boys meet very cute girls, they might say YABAI!! They mean that the girls are very cute and pretty!
