For instance, there's a couple of times where we would go out as a family for dinner, and dad would bring along some fish he bought at the market. Sometimes prawns. Then we would go to the restaurant and dad would be like "Here's a fish so please cook sweet and sour, then these prawns you go make udang goreng tepung" and after we would only have to pay them for upah masak.
Yeah I know, my dad, one in a trillion.
So here's a story about the ikan memerang as I call it.
One fine day, mom and dad had just gotten back from kampung. They asked little sister and me to get ready cause we're gona have dinner some place out. Then they hurried to the kitchen to siang the ikan. So I went to look and like whoaaah where did this huge fish come from??
Then mom told me the ikan memerang story. Its a short one really. They were at the kampung, dad went to the back of the house, by the river. A memerang was there and it had just caught a fish, this one. Dad quickly came closer, so the memerang left. Without the fish. So dad simply took it home. Like a boss.
And now the ikan memerang is safe in our tummies. And we only had to pay for upah masak, as usual.
