Saya tak makan daging, ayam atau ikan, dah lebih sebulan dah..............
I had this thought of turning vegetarian since way back in Kelantan. Bakpo (why?) you ask? Dok tahu kawe! (not sure myself). I think it was a calling, you know, like in Jogho, when Mamat explained to his wife of his liking to bullfighting, "aku nih oghe perjuange, mung keno pehe" (I have a calling, you understand?)
Its not easy being a semi - vegetarian (I never consider myself a strict vegetarian, I still eat animal product, milk and eggs for instance) here. And the word vegetarian itself is so alien, untok membuktikannya below is a transcribe text between me and Kak Ruby
Location: Kedai Makan Kak Ruby, Sekyen 2, Shah Alam.
Kak Ruby: Makan ni je dik? (I was paying my packed lunch, nasi putih, kerabu mangga and tempe)
Me: saya vegetarian kak
Kak Ruby: ooo, allergic eh? dari kecik lagi ke?
And it was also difficult, personally. I have to give up a lot of favourites, among them are my mum's specialty macam sup ayam, nasi lemak...~sigh~
Hmmmm... dok tahu nok royak gapo doh............
