my 3-year-old is becoming a vegetarian

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.
QQ: *GASP*

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"

A good start for QQ to keep a noble and healthy lifetyle(being a vegetarian)!

Have a great week!

QQ is very compassionate towards animals. LOL, well....if want her to eat well without too much of trouble on your part, then looks like have to avoid letting her see the 'cutting' process for future food preparation work! ^_^

Last time when i was young, i remember my mom said got "pantang". Cannot say "kesian" when someone is cutting chicken, fish or duck coz the "spirit" wont rest in peace. But i guess it is so that the one cutting the animals wont feel guilty

I was chuckling away reading this post. QQ does have a kind heart. It's good if she wants to be a vegetarian :)
BTW, QQ looked very pretty in that cherry cluster dress. I still haven't found the time to ask Alycia to model the dress for me to snap pix. Will do so next week after her exam :)

Better ask your mum to hide when she cuts chicken next. Else, QQ would stop eating that as well

slavemom said...

Oh dear, she sounded really upset. I hope she's not traumatised or something. Has she forgotten abt the "cruel" incident?
