My girls are actually lucky lah..they have ready-made friends. Semalam riuhnya my house- it was almost 10 but it was still very noisy - they were playing "Mak Ayam & Musang" (or wolf and mother hen?) Since the day of Dahlia's report card Ive been telling them to speak MALAY at home which has led to hilariousresults such as:
Sara (at the dinner table) : You know, I have a friend who always say"Dude"
Sophia: Oh yeah? Is it like, hey, where are you going, old Dude??
Mummy: Oi! Cakap bahasa Melayu!!
Sophia: err...mana awak nak pergi, dude tua?
So anyway semalam punya game ni...4 of them are in a row and they are all "playing" suddenly one of them cried "INTERRUPTION!!" and then crossed her legs- I want to go toilet!
Mummy: Cakap Bahasa Melayu!!
Nadine: Ok lets go to the musang's house for toilet
..and so it goes.Basically the game involved them taking the toilet key from the wolf, and then losing it and then being chased by the musang. Terkikik-kikik mereka. I shake my head at the lack of practice in bahasa ibunda.
The kids also come home with so many variations of the "oh jus"(or rock paper scissors) games. A very popular one is "see see amerika" It goes- see see amerika amerika duit something something something, cocola duit, cocola ayoyo and involve putting down your hand as either rock, paper or scissors . Then if its the same, you wag your finger at each other and go "ayo yo" and if not, you slap the other person - or rather you pretend to slap them and then they would turn their head to the left and right.
Yesterday Sophia tried to teach a new version- baby lotion something something, dum dum dek, dum dum and then involve some baby crying. There is also that P- I-Z-Z-A -H-U -T , pIZA pIZZA HUT, ... rock paper scissors game ...
