Sounds Delicious?

As usual, both Chris and I would visit the Subiaco Market to stock up our groceries on almost every Saturday when I was in Perth.

Kok: Eh, what else wanna buy ah?

Chris: Don't know leh. Later I'll take a carton of eggs and a bag of garlic and onion each.

Kok: Oh... I go around again to see if we missed out something, ok?

Chris: Ok. I'll queue up to pay for the stuff.

I went around the market. Suddenly, I realised I haven't bought any cucumbers for making sandwiches.

Photo taken from Here.

Kok: Chris, did you buy any choo choom bers?

Chris: What? Choo choom bers? I thought we still have it in our fridge?

Kok: Huh? Really? But today choo choom bers are quite cheap leh.

Quickly, an old lady who was queuing behind us, interrupted.

Lady: *Giggle* What's that choo choom bers? Sounds delicious!

Kok & Chris: Oh! It's cucumbers!

Lady: *Laugh* I didn't know choo choom bers can sound that delicious.

All three of us laughed out loud!

So, does choo choom ber sound delicious to you? ;)

P/s: My uncle used to tell her daughter that cucumber was pronounced as "choo choom ber". Thus, I always make fun of the word, cucumber.
