Aiden, being a city boy and all, was absolutely amazed. But imagine our surprise when he started shouting "Turkey, turkey!" Okay-lah not so bad; despite growing up in the city he still knows how a turkey looks like. His relatives on the other hand, was impressed that he called it a turkey instead of a chicken. But when they asked him, "Mana ayam?", he simply gave them a blank stare. *tak faham la tuh!* They got so amused that they started him calling ayam! Ooookkkaaayyyyy... I hope this nickname is not going to stick!
Since it was too late at night to catch a turkey for Aiden to play with, they let him touch a chicken instead.

The next night, we visited Aiden's granduncle again; and since Aiden called out for the turkey numerous times, they decided to let him play with the turkey too. However, it was no easy feat trying to catch a turkey, so they enlisted help from some local boys, in exchange for payment of a few ringgits.
