Step into the fascinating world of babas and nonyas and find out what's brewing in the Lim family. You'll find it hard to resist colourful gossips and their wicked sense of humour.

Makan Nangka Kena Getah regales you with a richly woven tale of a Peranakan family struggling with sibling rivalry and forgotten secrets.

Madam Tay singlehandedly raised her two sons and a daughter after her husband’s demise. But feuds between the siblings taint the house. Eldest Beng Hock is a simpleton, younger Beng Seng is a crafty, grouchy man while the youngest, only daughter Cally is a graduate but good-for-nothing bum. Together, they are a recipe for gripping havoc. And when not all the daughter-in-laws in the family can be trusted, sinister is in the air.

Meanwhile, Bibik Joan, longtime confidante of Madam Tay, and also the neighbourhood gossipmonger, takes an impish delight in passing on tittle-tattles with traces of wittiness, or perhaps even wicked truths.

As the matriarch of the house looks beyond the veil of time and in the eyes of fate, an unexpected visitor turns up at her doorstep. Has Madam Tay been hiding a skeleton in the closet? Will it make a sweet antidote or a biting poison for the Lim family?
