So I try to make a skype call become a daily routine for our family, I call them at certain time every day.
Just now, I asked her how her day was, and she told me that she had fun on her piano class today, but then she said “tapi kakak kurang KENSONTRASI ma hari ini”. 😀 😀 😀
A very nice choice of word from a 4,5 yo baby girl 😀 😀
I corrected her, “KONSENTRASI kali maksud kakak, bukan KENSONTRASI?”She replied, “iya ma, itu maksud kakak”.
A day before, she told me she will not go to school until Wednesday because of CNY Celebration Public Holiday (Imlek she said). I pretended I knew nothing about Imlek and asked her to explain what imlek is.
Michelle : “Imlek is a new year celebration for Chinese people, there are a lot of friends who celebrate Imlek, so that’s why we have holiday for the next three days. I have 3 best friends but they don’t celebrate Imlek”
Me : “Why don’t they celebrate Imlek?”
Michelle : “Because two of them are Bataknese and the other one is MALADO people”
Me : “MANADO maksudnya ya kak?”
Michelle : “ah, ya, MANADO ma, itu maksudnya”
😀 😀 😀 😀
