Mum was cleaning some fishes on Friday morning. She usually does her cleaning at the wet kitchen, over the low basin and water tap. QQ, as usual, came and keypoh. The basin and water tap were low enough for her to peep at the fishes in the basin.
QQ: *gasp* Popo, why are you cutting the fish head away?!?!
Popo: Because we won't be eating the heads.
What QQ was going to say gave mum a surprise.
QQ: Popo, don't cut the fishes! They are soooooo poor things!
Popo: But we have to clean them before we cook them for dinner!
QQ: But I don't want to eat the fishes! They are soooooo poor thing!
Popo: We must eat fish... fish is good for us.
QQ: But I don't want to eat fish! So poor thing! I want fish to swim... like my tortoise at home!
Popo: These fishes are already dead. For us to cook and eat. They can't swim anymore.
QQ: Popo! You kill the fishes! You cut the head and kill the fishes! Soooo poor thing *SOB*
Mum told me that she had a hard time cleaning the rest of the fishes. Made her feel like the worst person in the world :-S
And when dinner came, true to her words, QQ didn't want to eat the fishes. She told mum she didn't want to eat fish anymore. She said she wanted to eat tofu. o.O"
