Your House Got Mauboussin

I was talking to my taxi uncle today (yes, I have a lot of phone calls from cab drivers, dry cleaners, courier men, restaurant captains and the like) and he said, or asked: "Today your house got Mauboussin".
"Huh?" I said.
"Your house today Mauboussin road block cannot go".
Then I got it. He meant Thaipusam.
"No, can come, my house got Mauboussin, but still can come because only some small lanes closed, you can still come from Race Course Road side."
I have Cartier, Bulgari and Tiffany&Co in my house, but no Mauboussin, thank you very much.
