[E] How do we answer this question?
It was my cousin’s wedding. My niece Yana, 6 years old was sitting next to me and my 8 month-pregnant elder sister, Anis at the dining table. Looking at my sister’s belly and my newly wed cousin, one question popped out from Yana’s mind and she eventually voiced it out.
Kenapa lepas orang kahwin, keluar baby? (direct translation: Why do couples who got married, get babies?)
My sister won’t answer that question, so she directed Yana to ask me instead. I diverted the question to her mother, which she simply answered “Sebab kena cucuk.”. Yana might think ‘cucuk’ means injections from the doctor.
