Biu ketip

biyuk)tip/
  • a very small banana that must be boiled before eating. Biu ketip gave its name to the unit of money used in Bali long ago. One ketip was 10 sen, or 0.1 Rupiah in the old days, and this is what the banana used to cost. If that price were in effect today, at the present rate of exchange one could buy about 90,000 of these bananas for one U.S. Dollar (Noun)
