Here are some of the “classic” which I found it cute and laughable.
Chat 1 (Sarah=S, Mommy=M)
S: Mommy, all the boys in my class very naughty-one, I don’t like them!
M: How about Lik Hwang Kor-Kor (her male cousin)?
S: Lik Hwang Kor-Kor treats me very nice-one…next time I want to marry him!
All this while, I do teach Sarah about menstruation; and one day she told me this:
S: Mommy, today Dong Zhao (her classmate) got period-wor.
M: Huh! But he is a boy-wor, cannot be-lah.
S: But he got blood came out from his nose…
S: Mommy, when I grow up I want to be a cobbler.
M: Urr…cobbler…not bad-lar; but it will not earn you much money-wor.
S: How about Zoo Keeper? So next time I can pat the lion-mar.
(Too much of Animal Planet TV show, I guess)
S: Mommy, I wish to grow up quick-quick. Because I wish to know I will become pretty or not, good girl or not…M: I just hope you stay healthy and be a good girl; I will try my best to teach you all the good values…
S: But I wish to grow up to be a princess-wor.
M: No-lah! Your daddy is not a king and mommy is not a queen, you won’t become princess-one.
S: Oh… (Disappointed)
This one involved some Chinese words.
M: Sarah, 造句…风.
S: 风…风很够力 (She meant the wind is strong!)
M: (I almost faint, but I keep my cool and said) ok…how about 造句…火.
S: 火人 (She meant firemen!)
(I start to sympathised her future Chinese primary school teacher…)
Through the conversations we had it makes me realized that Sarah has grown up so much; thinking back sometimes it still make me giggling and smile inside.
