Banana for Monkeys only?

On either Thursday or Friday each week, my MIL will buy some fruits to offer to the ‘Tua Pek Kong’ behind our house. MIL said the ‘Tua Pek Kong’ helps her with her business as well as blessing the whole family. Most of the time she will buy either bananas or oranges for the offering. After which she will brings back and eats them.

Today it was no difference. She bought a bunch of bananas.

After the prayer, MIL brought it back and ate some while walking out to the living room. Then I heard she offered to Darrius, who was playing in the living room at that time.

Here is the conversation that I over heard…


MIL: Darrius, you want to eat banana?

Darrius: No! For Monkeys!

MIL: Har? Lu kong ha mi? (Huh? What did you say? – in Hokkien)

Darrius: Banana for monkeys only. You eat banana, you monkey!

MIL: (Burst out laughing)


MIL then called out to me and asked me if I heard what Darrius just said and I also can’t stopped laughing… 😛

Ok, I did not teach him this… I don’t know where he learned it from. o_O
