Asna

Chinese Cinderella

No, not this one.

“Asna, what are you doing?”

“Mama just read me a bedtime story. It’s Cinderella in Malay”

“What is the name of a Malay Cinderella?”

“SIN-DA-RE-LA”

Just for the sake of fun, I asked.

“What is the name of a Chinese Cinderella?”

Silence. Thinking silence.

“CHIN… CHAU”

-_-‘

When she was barely three, Asna was amazed a while when she first discovered mandarin news- she’d say SHI-SHE-SHOU when seeing Chinese characters.
