greedy pig

Every day before children go to school I make their lunch box. Sandwich. chips. Water. Juice. Yogurt. Fruit. Today Rayan bring back his full lunch box. Maam getting upset. She say Rayan why you not eat anything? Then she tell me Sally what you give him? that he is not eating? I tell her maam I give him chicken sandwich. he always eating chicken sandwich when I give him. so maybe he not eat because he is not hungry today. 

Maam say he is not eating anything for full day how he can not be hungry? give him some food now. I give Rayan some snack and he eat so quick. Like he never see food before.  Maam say look Sally how he is eating. See how hungry he is. I look at Rayan. He is eating like a greedy pig. Maam say Rayan slow down you are eating so fast. you will do vomit then you will have nothing in your stomach again.

I am now thinking of this story I read in paper. There is this man who is stealing full lunch box. Because he has no money to buy food. This man is having to steal lunchbox because he is so very hungry. When you are so very hungry you have to eat. Because you have to fill your stomach. Even if you have to steal food. Even if you have to eat old expire food. 

Like how I read in gulf news that some pinoy grocery store workers are eating expire food from grocery store. so they not have to spend too much salary on buying food. so they can send more money home. This is the sad story what people do when they are hungry and have no money. but they have to fill their stomach.

Now I remember this other story I am reading in paper. Another story about lunch box. But little bit different. There is this filipino man who is using his lunch box to steal gold. He is taking little bit gold from his work place and putting it in his lunch box. When the police is catching him they are finding 30 kilo of gold. Imagine. How much he is stealing. In his lunch. He go to jail. He is not hungry man. He is greedy man. That is why he now have nothing but jail in his life.

Maam is telling Rayan this story one time. about this king. He is so greedy he is wishing that every thing he touch become gold. His table become gold. His chair become gold. Even his potty become gold. He is so happy because he thinks he is the richest man in the world. Then he hugs his daughter and she becomes gold. He realise that he is so rich but he is actually poor. Because even if he has so much gold he has nothing if he has no daughter. He has nothing because he is greedy. 

Hungry is when you have to eat to fill your stomach. Greedy is when you want more more more. It is better to eat to fill your stomach but not be greedy pig. Because the stomach of the greedy pig will be full but his life will be empty.

I agree that these story are fictitious. BTW have you ever considered that the kid might not eat the chicken because it may have gone off in the several hours it is in the lunch box? Chicken is the worse food to give to children if it is going to be stored in the lunch box for hours as it is most susceptible to salmonella contamination.
I do not approve that this maid is actually using the computer of her employer without her knowing!!! and spending her time on this instead of working???

Yes, perhaps it is fiction, but it is good fiction. Good fiction which aggregates the buzz and fog of reality into an abstract but clear picture, which helps us to understand reality a little better.

I agree with you, i can understand what you are trying to tell us, but the fact that you yourself disagreed about a friend that she used her other friend for a job, in other term she was a user for her own benefit. Same as what you did sally, you used ur boss's computer for this blog???so what's the different between u and the girl that you have mention on you first story?no offense meant but i just want to clear out that using other people personal stuff without their authorization is a crime! you must know that sally...

I've heard that news about that guy stealing 1 piece of gold jewellery everyday for i think 2 years. He got busted when his brother was held at the airport carrying 5kg of gold. The thing is, his brother gave him just a half kilo of gold, but he stole the rest and that's the end of it. haha sayang.. :D
