You're learning Flemish, I presume? I didn't know the phrase boenk erop, but after a quick google search I think the whole sentence can be translated thus: "I didn't see that one coming. Bulls-eye!"

Alé jong! is also Flemish and means "c'mon, man!"

"Die voelde ik niet aankomen" = I didn't feel that one coming.
