Ever since the farm was built, they had worked hard together to bring the farm to what it was today.
Ah Quah is sort of the leader of the trio; he displays good leadership skills, is very good at what he is doing, but is a bit too direct with his words. Alamak on the other hand, although he is a hard worker, he tends to make minor mistakes from time to time. Ah Quah has the tendency to criticize Alamak for every mistake he makes, but Alamak regards the criticism as ‘positive feedback’. Ah Lim is sort of the character created for mediating purposes.
One day, it was business as usual at the farm. A representative from a company that supplies Pokémilk had paid the farm a visit. He was supposed to collect a cheque worth 500000 PokéCash, directed to his company. Such matters are usually handled by Ah Quah, but Ah Quah was out on a delivery. Alamak took the initiative to write the cheque on Ah Quah’s behalf.
During the evening, the Pokémilk Company called Ah Quah and notified him about some mistakes on the cheque. The cheque had the wrong account number, wrong amount, and wrong name written on it. The company expressed anger over the matter as they had to make another trip to the farm. Feeling annoyed, Ah Quah took it out on Alamak.
“What did you think you were doing? Only babies make stupid mistakes like this...”
For some reason, the usually passive Alamak snapped. He began to hurl several unspeakable words towards Ah Quah. Ah Quah was shocked and left speechless.
Two weeks has passed, and the tension between the two has yet to subside. Ah Lim, being witness to these events, recently found out that Alamak was on a bad mood that day due to the death of his pet goldfish. What should Ah Lim do to salvage the situation?
Knock it off! You two!
This is obviously a hypothetical scenario; it is totally fiction. Any resemblance of any real life scenarios is purely coincidental.
For those who are wondering what Ah Quah and Alamak means:
Alamak- An Malay expression of dismay, surprise or alarm.
Ah Quah- An offensive term for an effeminate man. The Singlish equivalent of “faggot”.
