The officer and chilly
Once a government officer was invited for a feast. He was served wonderful dishes. The officer asked for a few chillies. The host simply smiled and clapped his hands. And chillies appeared out of nowhere. The officer was so shocked that he asked for a transfer the very next day.
It is said that a fish bought from Mayong weighs less when you take back home.
