What a fish!

Hubby was telling Little D our plans last Saturday.

He said: Papi (Spanish for Daddy) has to go to my friends house later. You can come along if you like. You can see some big fishes in his pond. (turning to me he says: You wont believe it but EL's fish cost a hundred grand each!)

S, overhearing says: Who would believe that a little fish swimming in a bowl costs a hundred thousand dollars!

Hubby: His fish dont swim in a bowl, they swim in a pond that is as big as the swimming pool in Aunty N's house!

S: What?!!

Hubby: Yes, and it is even air-conditioned!! (temperature controlled, la)

S: Papi! I want to be his fish!!

Me, too! I have not seen this guy's fishes, but I understand that they were hand carried to Singapore on the plane (before all these 100ml restrictions!!), and cost what I pay for my car. Guess it pays to be a fish of the CEO of a public listed company.

Goes to show, some fish like dogs have good life and some don't. Same with us human.

When we had Japanese carps in our pond, because they were so expensive, when one died, my dad's heart was aching (not for the fish but for the $$$ lost), so he asked our maid to cook the fish and asked us to eat.

After tasting it, nobody liked it so we never ate anymore dead carps. :)
