A conversation Bec had with Esther.
Esther: Ka Cheh… you know ah, it’s night time here but it’s now morning where mummy is. WOW! o.O
Esther: *insert curious look* Why?
Becca: *thinking hard* Because you see right, our Earth is round. So when the sun is shining in Paris where mummy is, our place is night.
Esther: Oh… *thinks for a while…* Why?
Hahahahahahah! The power of ‘why’.
And sometime ago, I was playing with the World Time application installed in my handphone with Esther watching. I placed Paris as default.
Esther: Ka cheh, where is Paris?
Stella: Paris is in France…
Stella: You see… We live in Malaysia right? Malaysia is our “negara”.
Esther: uh huh… *listening intently*
Stella: *don’t know how to continue from there. wth* Ok… KL is in Malaysia. So, Paris is in France. France is a “negara”. Something like that lar…
Esther: OOOOOOooo! I understand…
Stella: Wow, Esther so clever!
Esther: Ka cheh, what is negara? What is negeri? Pahang is negara or not? What about Raub?
Another conversation Bec had with Esther.
Esther: Ka Cheh, when I finish “darjah enam”, I am in what “darjah”?
Becca: You will be in form 1 then. Study in secondary MGS loh.
Half a minute later…
Esther: I don’t want! I want to be teacher!
Becca: Cannot. When you finish secondary then only can be teacher.
Esther: CAN……. I want to be teacher after “darjah enam”.
And the last one…
Stella: Esther, who is your favourite teacher?
Esther: Cik Zura. She is a very good teacher!!!
Stella: What about Pn. Halimatun? She taught me and Becca, you know. Now, she’s teaching you too. She is a very good teacher also.
Esther: 😯 *and puts on a forced smile*
Stella: What!? Why?!
Esther: Ka Cheh……. She is a “puan” lar! “Puan” is not beautiful, “cik” is beautiful geh… Haiyorh!
Kids! What can I say?
Sometimes when she asks me question that is too hard for her to understand, I just brush her off and say she won’t understand even if I explained, she forces me to explain anyway. Whenever she gets annoying like that, I go all scientific and deep with my answers. “Food poisoning by S. aureus… The erythrocytes and leukocytes… Our bone marrow… The speed of light… The equation of x and y determines…”
Buahahah! In your face, Esther!
