BH forwarded the above with the following note...
They may be cute now but wait until they grow up:
Chick and kitten are a real-life version of Tweety and Sylvester.
Please note the difference between a chick and a birdie. A chick grows to become a chicken and the size depends on its species. A kampung (or village) chicken is likely to be slim and agile, and can even fly up to perch on a tree. Its size is definitely bigger than a normal bird of Tweety's kind. In the case of castrated chicken, the size can grow to more than 5 kg.! By then, even Sylvester will have to give some respect to it.
By the way, for the information of those uninitiated, a castrated chicken (aka as 'yim kai' in Cantonese) is being sold at Rm50 a kg.! This works out to Rm250 for one bird. You can complain to the government but people are willing to pay for the pleasure of eating a steamed one. As my wife would remind any of her lucky friends, she would not give unless the recipient agrees that no skin will be thrown away!
