[example 1]
Everytime we ask Putu to go to school, he always says that he's got a headache. However, his headache is suddenly gone whenever he eats and he even asks for more. Just like what our elderly said, no matter how broken a rice pot is, it would always eats rice (said to a person who pretends to be sick, but who still eats a lot).
