 Once upon a time, there was a poor fisherman lived nearby the river in North Sumatera. His name was Toba. He went fishing early every morning and always returned to his home at night time.

 One day while he was fishing, he was praying “God, please give me a fish. I have stand here for a long time.” Suddenly he set up his net and caught a big golden fish. “Woah, It was a very big fish. And the color is golden. So beautiful” said Toba. He fell in love with the beauty of the fish that he decided not to kill the fish, and made it as a pet instead. So, he took the fish home, cleaned a fish tank and put it in his humble kitchen.

 Starting that day, things changed slowly. Every morning the fisherman went out for fishing, no matter how he left his home in a mess, when he returned home, the house would be tidy again. Furthermore, there was always delicious food served on his dining table. The fisherman never knew how it happened, and where the food came from, and who prepared them for him.
