Kid Speak

Kayrin's latest fascination -- time. She wants to know what month and date it is, and can ask for it several times a day. But her sense of time is improving. Last week, she badgered her mah mah and me to bring her to Bukit Jalil Park. On the way there, she said to her grandmother in a mixture of cantonese and English (cantonese is in italics), "Yesterday, you said we could go to the park tomorrow. Tomorrow is today lor."
She's also speaking in English that isn't purely English anymore. Yesterday, Shaw Feng held her after her trip home in yeh yeh's car.
"Why is your face so cold," Daddy asked her.
"Because it kena air-cond."
