Mummy Jaga You (me)
There are times when Zara wakes up in the morning, and refuse to have Tuyam take over the caring of her. "Don't want kakak jaga (Malay : take care) you (me). Mummy jaga you (me)." "Mummy need to work. Saturday and Sunday then mummy will jaga you." "Mummy don't want work work. Jaga you (me)." "Cannot. Mummy don't work work, then no money to buy Zara cheese, chocolate, and fish" As though she understands, she'll follow me downstairs. However, on such a day, there'll be some protesting when Tuyam gives her her monring bath. "Mummy bath bath you (me)! Don't want kakak do." And if mummy didn't oblidge (which I won't on weekdays), she will cry, while taking her bath, while being changed.
