One Chicken Ala Carte, please!

I remembered when I was little, wastage of food was a no-no, esp having dinner with dad. He would tell us that a grain of rice costs 5sen, a quarter of a milo glass (unfinished) costs 20sen etc. 

He would remind us siblings to remember his background, a poor farmer's son adopted by a European priest who sent him off to school at the age of 12. His parents were to poor to sent him to one. Those time, to have a piece of chicken thigh for dinner was luxury, which had to be shared with 12 other siblings of his. 

Watching this video reminded me of him. Something to share and ponder!
