Man Savours Handmade Buns By Child At JB Checkpoint
Many of us would have had the privilege of enjoying a homecooked meal by our parents when we were younger.
This was the opposite for one man in Malaysia when his child made curry potato buns for him to bring across the Causeway.
Since he knew that the buns would be prohibited at customs, he finished the entire container as he did not want his child’s efforts to go to waste.
Man finishes child’s handmade buns at JB checkpoint
On Sunday (5 Feb), the man took to Facebook to share the touching story.
In his post, he revealed that his child was worried that he would not have anything to eat when he returned to Singapore.
Thus, the boy decided to personally make curry potato buns for the OP to bring across the Causeway so that he would not go hungry.
Spent 1.5 hours finishing the buns
However, the OP was aware that such food items were prohibited by Singapore customs. Even so, he could not bear to break the news to his child.
Besides that, he shared that he was shocked when he opened the container as there were five buns inside.
This was too large of a portion for him, the OP explained, quipping that his child should have made two or three buns instead.
Regardless, he spent the next one-and-a-half hours slowly eating the buns.
He managed to finish all of them before going through customs.
Netizens praise child for filial piety
In the comments, netizens applauded the child for his filial piety. They also praised the OP for his good upbringing.
Another netizen pointed out that it was usually the parents who would make food for their children instead of the other way around.
Thus, this was a rare sight that proved that his child loved him dearly, they added.
On the other hand, one user remarked that the buns should be able to clear customs as they did not contain any meat.
In response, the OP revealed that the buns did actually have some chicken inside.
Unconditional love between parent and child
This heart-warming tale that the OP shared truly demonstrates the unconditional love between parent and child.
Kudos to him for finishing the buns and not letting his child’s efforts go to waste.
They must have been the most delicious buns the OP has ever had in his entire life.
