Cute mistakes she makes
Zara speaks a lot, and she's picking up words from us daily. Being only 20months old, she makes some really cute mistakes. Sauce is Horse to her. As in Soya Horse and Chilli Horse. She would say, "Don't want Chilli Horse. Spicy." Anything that has pines, or prickly she gets them mix up. Porcupine is a Pineapple Puffer fish is a Pine Cone Pine Cone is a Porcupine But a Pineapple is a Pineapple. She pronunces the BL sound as BR. As in "the light brink brink". And when something drops, she says "Opsy Dentally", fusing the phrase "Opsy Daisy" with "accidentally". She calls a biscuit, bis-kot, as how Tuyam pronunces it. Recently I corrected her, and now when she said biskot, she would self correct and mutter, "biscuit, not biskot, biskot is Mayay (Malay)".
