In a village in Sumatra, there lived a farmer. He was a farmer who diligently worked, although not large farm he have. He worked hard enough to get their needs. Actually he was already enough to get married, but he still chose to live alone. On a sunny morning, the farmers are fishing in the river.

"Hopefully today I got a big fish," the farmer whispered to himself.

Some time after the hook was thrown, that's fishhook wiggle. He immediately set the hook. The farmers cheer that after he got a big fish.


He was amazed at the beautiful colors of fish scales. Fish scales is yellow gold reddish. Her eyes are rounded and prominent, emit incredible rays.

The farmers feel very happy and peaceful. As a good husband, he continues to work hard for continuance of his life with farming. Because hard work, the farmers are living without a shortfall in his life. Many people are jealous, and they spread the ugly suspicion that could topple the success of farmers.

Food should be eaten 3 people can eat their own.

After all, the Son always make irritated his father. If in order to help working parents, he always refused. Farmer's wife always reminds farmers that are patient with their child behavior.

"Yes, I will be patient, even though,, he was our children!" Farmer said to his wife.

"Thanks God!,, You think like that. You is a good husband and a good father," praised Puteri to her husband.


Indeed, people say,, patience is no limit. This is experienced by the farmers. One day, Putera get a job deliver food and drink to the field where his father is working. But Putera does not fulfill its tasks. The farmer wait his son comes, while holding thirsty and hungry. He immediately returned to the house. The Farmer see Putera playing ball. Farmers became angry while pinch ear his son.
