However, the boy returns and keeps a distance as he waves at them and shouts: "No, no no, don't open."

He also makes warning noises at them to stop ransacking his bag: "Eh, eh, eh."

Unfortunately, the monkeys do not stop.

The boy then tries to negotiate with the monkeys and says: "OK please, I make you a deal, the can of Coke is yours but I want my bag..."

A monkey screeches at him and he backs off a little before coming closer yet again.

"I just want my stuff," he says.

"These are all my school stuff. 

"I beg you... Please, please.

"Give me back."

In the boy's final attempt to retrieve his belongings, both monkeys suddenly run and climb up a tree.

The teen moves forward but freezes after one of the macaques jumps from the tree.

The person filming the entire episode shouts: "Go take and run lah, quick!"

He then grabs his stuff and flees as one of the monkeys chases after him.

The video was originally posted on TikTok but shared on Facebook where it has garnered over 722,000 views.

Most netizens found the whole situation entertaining. However, many praised the youth for his bravery and persistence.
