Money conquers the World, Love conquers everything ... ? Or is it the other way around? Without money, you can't do anything. Without love, you have nothing.
Believe it or not? I only know the meaning of 'anak ikan' few months ago. We; my family, my sister and her boyfriend were having drinks at a cafe when the subject came up.
"Apa Anak Ikan ya?" I asked looking puzzled. "Kak Ida...! Toy boy la!!" My sis explained to me. A few weeks ago a friend to a friend of mine told my friend about a toy boy from KL. He was telling her about the life he's living. She (S) asked the 'anak ikan'...
S : Why do you do this?
A.I. : I want to save up some money so I can get whatever I wish later...
S : So, what do you do with your Sugar Mummy?
A.I. : If the (rich) husband is not in town, we check into a hotel.
S : Do you have a girlfriend??
A.I. : No.
S : Why? Don't you get lonely... ?
A.I. : Can't do this if I have a girlfriend. No time for a girlfriend yet. Not that I don't want, but have to remain focus. If I have a girlfriend, I might get distracted. Can't think about being lonely or not, most important to pile up the savings.
This kind of thing really happen. Why do people do it?? For money, and of course for the sugar mummy, for the attention and affection. So, I guess these women really enjoy the company of younger men. And for the younger men, what do they have got to loose? They're being offered sex and get paid for it.
But is there love? I do believe some of these women are in love with their 'anak ikan'. They are not doing it just for sex. They lavish their 'anak ikan' with money and gifts because they actually sayang and are madly in love with their toy boys. It's a pity for the women, the 'anak ikan' will leave anytime they feel like it. Sugar Mummies will be left broken hearted. They thought they could buy love, obviously money doesn't conquer everything. But love will make them do anything, they think they can buy their 'anak ikan's' love and affection. But sadly, it won't last. So, money gone but no love.... what to do?? Find a new 'anak ikan'.
... I'm just thinking, these men/boys would do such a thing like this, for money.
