We were at Cherating waiting to go on the boat to see the fireflies. So the man kept telling everyone about why the fireflies have the light, for mating purpose. The males will have short and fast blinks while the females have long and slow blinks. And after they mate, the male will drop on the floor and die immediately and the females will go and lay some eggs and also will die. So, Jayden was looking kinda lost when the man said "MATE" as per the picture :S
So I gotto explain in my own term...
Me: ah you hear the uncle say that the boys will have fast and short blinks. And the girls have long and slow blinks. So then they blink ha.. blink ha.. then the boy say "ah I like that "blink"" So he fly over and he look look at the girl and the girl look back at him. If the girl also like him then she also blink ha... blink ha like that la.
Jayden: And then ? after blink leh?
Me: then blink ha... blink ha.. they like each other then they go stick the bum bum together la.
JD: why they have to stick the bum bum together wan?
Me: because they wanna make baby ma. So stick the bum together for a while, then after the mummy pregnant edi, then the daddy will fall to the ground and die.
Me: yeah.. will die wan.
JD: then the mummy leh?
Me: after that she fly back to her house, lay some eggs on the ground and then she also die la.
JD: THE MUMMY CANNOT DIE WAN!
Me: yeah, she will die after she lay some eggs.
JD: BUT I don't want the MUMMY to die!MUMMY Cannot die wan!
Me: but then fireflies it's like that lor. Stick bum bum edi, pregnant edi, then die la. After that the eggs will have tiny fireflies coming out, you see become larvae ah, pupa ah.. then become adult fireflies and then they also blink ha..blink ha like that and then got new girlfriend and boyfriend lo.
