While changing her clothes on Saturday, Zara suddenly said, "Ah Tu (Zara's Ah Ku; Hokkien : Mum's brother a.k.a King)! Baju(Malay: Clothes)." and then she started touching her cheek with her pointer. I actually didn't know what she was saying. King Wife was laughing and explained that she asked Zara to shame King when he was walking about bare chested the other day. Zara must have recalled the incident while I removed her clothes. ~~~~~~~~~~~.~~~~~~~~~~~ On Sat night while getting ready for bed, I saw an annoying mosquito flying about in the room. Sam was shouting, "Mosquito! Mosquito!", and I was chasing after it. Finally I managed to slap and kill it. I showed Zara the squashed mosquito in my palm and said, "See, mosquito very naughty, that's why mummy beat beat mosquito". She then clapped her hands together and said, "Moh-toh-toh". ~~~~~~~~~~~.~~~~~~~~~~~ Zara was taking her morning shower with Sam at King's Wife's. Half way through her shower, she just uttered, "Happy!" (she knows what it means, but never spoken the word before). I guess she was really happy to be taking the shower with her favourite Sam che-che. ~~~~~~~~~~~.~~~~~~~~~~~ A moth flew in the house and was clinging on to the curtains, Zara pointed to it and said, "Mot". I was surprised as I never taught her the word, but remembered this was one of the many characters that appeared in her story book, Miss Spider's Tea Party. ~~~~~~~~~~~.~~~~~~~~~~~ Kids learn very fast, and you don't know what retain in their memory and what not.
