Fried Banana That Doesn’t Reflect Its Given Name

A couple of days ago, I went to eat Coto Makassar in Coto Tamalanrea before the Hasanuddin University. I didn't really enjoy the food because I ate it with little spoiled ketupats (English: rice cake boiled in a rhombus-shaped packet of plaited young coconut leaves).

As I wanted to leave the restaurant, I didn’t have small change in my pocket to pay the parking man who had eyed on my motorcycle. Actually, I could use the bigger amount of money, which were the change I got from the Coto Makassar purchase, but I believed that the parking man would return its change with worn-out banknotes. I don’t like that.

So! I planned to buy something in expectation that I would get smaller amount of money to pay the parking man. I saw a stand that selling fried banana next to gas station of PERTAMINA. The stand seemed slack of consumers because its boxes were stacked all over the glasses. Probably, I was the first costumer who bought their product in that night.

I ordered fried banana called Pisang Goreng Coklat Keju (English: Fried Banana with Chocolate and Cheese). I had been waiting for it about 10 minutes because the girl who kept the stand had to fry it first. Nice it was fresh I thought.

Okay, I got small change and was ready to pay the parking man. Then, I went to my dorm room. As I opened the box of that fried banana, well I was shocked! Where was its cheese? It was only bananas with chocolate! Damn, what a lie.


I swear it is the only my first purchase in that stand.
