Malaysian Man Retires His "Kung Fu" Finger

By Meera Dolasia on May 15, 2008

Ho Eng Hui mesmerizes Malaysian tourists and locals weekly, with his amazing act of breaking through a tough coconut shell, using Kung Fu techniques - except in his case, he uses just his index finger! Now after eight years, Ho and his battered finger are retiring!

To perform his act, Ho would have Kung Fu music playing in the background. He would then focus on the coconut and let out a few cries before jabbing his index finger hard into the coconut with tremendous force until he broke in.

He broke his index finger while performing the act in Singapore. However, he persevered with the help of homemade oils, which he now tries to sell to the audience after his act every week. He even has his name mentioned in the Malaysian Book of Records, for breaking three coconuts in just over one minute.

All this jabbing however, has taken a toll on his finger and it hurts him too much every time he does the act. He therefore decided it was time to retire. The only regret he has, is that his son doesn't want to follow him into this profession.
