Sometimes teachers, principal and maybe the government are not happy about the kid’s height and weight. Every year, in January and July, (which both after a long school break), the teachers will measure the student’s height and weight just to make sure they don’t put too much weight over the holidays. If they do, they will ended up in KFC (Cockroach Language: Keep Fit Club) or Trim and Fit (As know as TAF Club) which they will run for 30 minutes during their recess and they don’t got the chance to take a break during recess (In my case).

Why am I talking about this? Because I want to tell you a story….Long time ago…

Mother: Ah boy, faster eat. Kitchen still got some more.
Boy: But I finish one big plate of rice, I can’t eat anymore.
Mother: Nonsense! One plate where got enough? You now in puberty stage must so eat more. Faster, give me your plate.
Boy: But mom, I really cannot eat already. I now can’t even wear my clothes now. I must try to eat less.
Mother: Fatter nicer what…
Boy: But I will go TAF club.
Mother: Nonsense! You must be fortunate that you can eat, other country want to eat also don’t have. Faster, eat.

Mother: Ah boy, come and eat humbugger for supper.
Ah boy: Just now I eat 3 plate of rice, still haven’t digest finish, I can’t eat anymore.
Mother: Nonsense! You now in puberty stage so must eat more.
Ah boy: but my PE teacher said eat supper not good, later will grow fat.
Mother: If guy fat a bit never mind. Guy should be a bit fat then look nice. Ah boy: Buy I am not just fat a bit. Latter school reopen I need to go TAF club.
Mother: Nonsense! The school asks you to go and die why not you go and die also. Follow the school for what? Eat is fortune, you better eat now or else next time don’t ask me to cook for you. Tomorrow won’t cook your dinner!
Boy: Ok, Ok, Ok. I eat, I eat, I eat…

As you can see, that ‘boy’ is in a difficult situation (That ‘boy’ don’t dare to talk back to his mom), he doesn’t want to eat anymore but parents were afraid that their kids don’t get enough nutrition, afraid their kids can’t grow well in their puberty stage and other kinds of reason that make them keep feeding their kids even thought the kids already very full. That’s explain why some kids are overweight, because parents over feed them, Kiasu Singapore Parents.
