Ikan ini tak boleh Goreng!

Just got back from a farewell dinner for a colleague.

I just heard the best joke .. ever!! Well actually its not a “joke” but something that really happened.. its a Super Funny True Story that happened to a colleague.

It goes like this … (Its a True Story!)

Story took place in the home of this Husband & Wife
(They recently just took in a temporary Indonesian maid into the home).

Wife came home from work and smelt fish cooking in the house. She tip toed towards the kitchen, curious, anxious to find out who was cooking and why was there fish being cooked in the home.

It was puzzling to her because she remembered that they had no more fish in the fridge, and she was due to buy fish the next time they did marketing.

When she peeped into the kitchen, she saw her new maid happily frying a fish.

Bewildered and not wanting to be forthright, she thought she better check with her husband on this fish, so she walked back out to the living room and called her husband.

W: Dear, did you … (paused) buy fish recently?
H: (Was in meeting with boss) What? …. Fish? No i didnt buy any.
W: You sure? You didnt buy some fish recently and stock it in the fridge?
H: No.. No i didnt buy any
W: Because I find it strange … the new maid is now frying fish in our kitchen
H: Could it be leftovers or something… ?
W: No, no i am very sure that we were out of fish, its on my next shopping list.
Hmm…. (trying to figure it all out) did you ask the maid to do anything today?
H: No, i didnt ask her to cook anything today .. (Remember he’s still in a meeting)
W: You sure you didnt ask her to do anything? Because… where would she get the fish from?
H: Oh yes.. i did call back earlier but I asked her to do something different. I called back and asked her to feed the rabbit in the cage and to feed the fish in the koi. (He had to speak in BM, as she was Indonesian). (Suddenly… it dawned on him….) WHAT?!!!! (Remembers he is in the meeting… and quickly excused himself)
W: I think she cooked one of your Koi fishes
H: (Now outside the meeting room). WHAT!!!??? She cooked my fish? How many fishes did she fry? How big is the fish that was fried? ….. …… …… ……

The wife found out in the end it was all a miscommunication. Her husband told the maid to feed the fish in the Koi, but the maid misunderstood his instructions but rather went outside to the pond (koi) and catch a fish to fry. (Apparently she commented that it was a common thing to do in her village). She fried a medium sized fish.

When the husband got home that night, he brought the maid out to the Koi, and pointed at the koi and said “Ikan ini tak boleh Goreng!” (These fishes cannot be fried!).

  3. Guess what?
    In the end they didn’t eat the fish. The wife was too geli about the whole incident.

    In fact she asked the husband to discard the fish.
    The maid was like.. Kenapa sir? Tak makan ikan itu?

    And the wife ordered the husband to clean the plate with clorox!

    What a funny story! 🙂
