very punny

This afternoon, I was buying $4 worth of siew yok for lunch from this hawker uncle (who specializes in chicken rice) in Tiong Bahru Market.

He hadn’t chopped the siew yok up, so I quickly added, ‘Uncle, 不要淋汁 hor!’

And he replied, ‘没有淋汁,只有人参!’

Then he and his assistant started grinning broadly, and I was like huh???!!!

After a moment it hit me. He meant 灵芝!!! -_-”’

    It’s nice to see our hawkers having fun with word play ;)

    Next time you revisit this hawker, ask got 人参 or not?

    See if he gives you extra portions for making him laugh!
