Budi asked Tono and Reny,”Do you like chicken soup>:
“Yes...I like it so much.”Reny replied.
“Oh... I’m so sorry; I do not like chicken soup”. Tono said.
Then Reny asked Budi and Tono,”How about fried chicken? Do you like it?”
“Wow... That’s my favourite!” Budi said.
“Hmm.... I think I am not interesting.” Tono replied.
Tono get the last chance for asking about their favorite food, “I like Hamburger! What do you think?”
“Yeah... I like it!” Reny replied.
“I think..... That’s not a good lunch to make my stomach be fulfilled.” Budi replied with a disappointed face.

“I am so sorry, our restaurant was not serving others menu beside vegetarian food.” The waiters said.
Budi then asked Reni and Tono with a whisper,” Do you both like vegetable?”
