2nd language




We approached language carefully. It was thought that she'll be confused with us using BM, cakap utara and English at home. So I chose English as my teaching aids are in English, iPad apps are English anyway.

But she has picked up BM too. She mainly speaks English for now, her school's medium is in English. She has few cute BM phrases:
  • dah (b)alik
  • cuyak (koyak)
  • tejut (terkejut)
I can safely say she's picking up the language now. Watching Dora and Diego- but so far has not picked up Spanish. Ni Hao, Kai-lan has Mandarin in it. Let's see if that challenges her language centre.

nay to Fullhouse

We haven't been back to the Jalan Yap Kwan Seng's outlet since it closed for renovation. We went there last month, I had the lamb shank. Not bad- it's edible. DH shared a pasta dish with DD... nothing spectacular, I didn't have a pic on camera or phone. It was pretty noisy as they had a ?party/ wedding reception. It was a noisy Fullhouse. Food-wise, it certainly wasn't the same as before. Don't think we'll be back there anytime soon, unfortunately.

The only pics I have of her rashes, but the vesicular rashes are not that clear in the iPhone pics huh? Did not manage to get the pic of the rashes on her palms.

I'm all better!

Ok cerita basi. This wasn't even this week, it was last week. I worked only on the last day of May (only because that the last oncall for the semester). The 4 days were spent at home with the quarantined girl.

This time around... since she's more of a chatterbox, I have to tell her why she has biji-biji itchy. Wikipedia-ed on iPad.... toddlers these days.

She'd rather use calamine lotion, or any cream rather than take oral meds... what else is new? She didn't have fever, she may had very mild fever during the night. But nothing requiring meds. I became her official scratcher- and she only had one dose of cetirizine 5mls spiked into her drink. All in all, it's quite a mild self-limiting disease.
