Twin bananas

Today this cute little darling visited me. His grandparents brought him over for the very first time. He's so cute as he smiled readily. I was tempted to carry him and he was fine with that. Some babies don't like strangers. 

I carried him and kissed his cheek several times..So adorable. Without hesitation, I gave him an ang pow.
his granddad put him on the table and I took a shot of him..


When I went back home in the evening, I realized that the bunch of bananas at the altar has ripen. I brought the bunch to my shop and shared with my people. There was this particular twin bananas and my worker wanted them.


She peeled them and I could see that they were adjoined all the way down. Well, old wives tale has it that those ladies who ate them would give birth to twins in future..

  7. Yeah my mama would stop me eating twin bananas too. Old folks sure have a good and convincing tales those days and the best part is we believed all of them e.g. like pointing the moon, milk tooth must be thrown over the roof top. Try telling to a 5 years old kid now they will certainly give you a one kind of look.
