Asna

Asna’s Malay progress

Asna selalu terikut Bibik. That’s why her informal Malay is a bit huru-hara.

“Mama mane?”“Mama di atas”
“Asna nak air ape?”“Asna nak air sirop”
“What did you do?”“Siram bunga”

She did not say bunge. She said bunga. Baku.
So just now, she was having dinner alone and drinking Solivite in front of the tv. Looked delicious. In grape.

“Asna can I have some?” 

*silence*

 “Yes”

*handed her Solivite* 

“No, I want a new one”

“Okay” 

“Well where is it?” 

“In the es”  

“In the what?” 

“It’s in the es” 

“What?” 

“In the es” 

“What is es?” 

*points to kitchen* 

“It’s in the es in the kitchen”

Then I just had to laugh out loud. Die panggil refrigerator tu “es”, as in “ais” in Indonesian.
LOL. Then I told her to call that thing “fridge”.
Bibik la ni ajar.
