1) Fish in plastic or plastic in fish?
Hooray, the world says it's getting rid of plastic bags. It will take some time.
Lately, I went to one of the biggest Singapore supermarket chains and asked for a small paper bag. I was given instead a small plastic bag.
"We don't have paper bags!" said the lady in charge. Strange.
No, whales swallow plastic bags and bottles. And, yes, in a certain country, some people are still catching whales to eat.
"We have been eating them for generations! It's in our culture!" says a citizen.
I love eating fish but definitely not whales. So be careful not only of fish bones but plastic pieces.
3) Ikan Kekek Folk Song:
Here's a Malay folk song I remember that little children sing in kampongs (villages) in the 1960s. It is just as popular today and sung in primary school classrooms in Malaysia and in Malay classes in Singapore.
Ikan Kekek is, according to a website, PONY FISH, pictured above, a favourite fish dish.
4) Songs with Fish titles:
I don't know too many songs about fish in the English language but here are a few:
