1. You got a Rotan or Tampar or Chilli padi stuffed into your mouth on at least one occasion.
You don’t talk back to a Malaysian mum.
2. You’ve heard this before: “If you don’t behave, (insert person here) will come catch you!”
The person may be the police, a ghost, the security guard, Apunene, or any random guy who happens to look scary.
3. You know better than to mess with your mum’s Tupperware.
It is fine if you lost your books, pencil, pencil case or even your bag. But never, ever her beloved Tupperware.
