Eid From Hong Kong

Yanto (32) leaves home to take his son Puput (6) to the Madrasah (islamic School) to recite the Quran. On the way, Yanto stopped at a small shop where people put up lottery numbers.
Yanto suspects that his motorbike's license plate number will hit the jackpot. He tries to confirm asking the lottery number prediction to a madman who has lived under a tree for a long time. And it turns out that Yanto's feelings were right, the madman also agreed that Yanto's license plate number would come out that night. Without thinking, he bought the number.
Even though the jackpot isn't 4 digits yet, the number he bought can penetrate to 3 digits, that's a nominal amount that is enough to celebrate Eid and buy Puput new clothes. When Puput got new clothes, he asked his mother, who had not returned home for 4 Eids. Hearing this, Yanto's feelings were very frantic, because he was also waiting for his wife's return home. With a clever brain, Yanto tricked Puput by inviting Rumijah to celebrate Eid together.
