There is a story about a duck breeder who is called Pak Meri (Mr. Duckling). He was given that name because he keeps a lot of ducks. Unfortunately, he had some unavoidable bad luck whereby two hundred of his ducks caught a disease and died, leaving only fifty. The remaining fifty ducks were thin and ugly. And those fifty ducks are all that Pak Meri has now. In the morning and afternoon, Pak Meri prepares food for his ducks. And the dirty ducks are led to the river for a swim and to clean themselves. The ducks are very obedient to Pak Meri. When Pak Meri is cutting grass for his ducks, they follow him and make a quacking sound. Quack ... quack ... quack. Pak Meri is happy to have such obedient animals.
