My two year old daughter is quite talkative, eventhough she still has problems with her pronunciation… she is also most talkative when she is in the car… especially when commenting on the traffic… maybe because from an early age we taught her to recognize the type of vehicles… lorry, cars motorcyle, ambulance and the not so often excavators..
She also like to comment on the cars and traffic, for example whenever I hit a pothole she would say “gok gek car papa” (papa’s car is unstable).. and we have no idea where she got the word “gok gek” (kelantanese) probably from her nanny?
Today she was talking in the car, saying “aguh okcik! iso okcik!” (very good, uncle! superb, uncle!) holding her thumbs up and showing it to the car in front.. this one is because whenever we encounter problematic vehicles my wife and I would hold our thumbs up to them.. hehe (cynical?)
And yesterday was something else altogether, we went to KB and she slept in the back seat, she woke up as I was getting into a crawl near a traffic light, she commented “ange epuh car, ekciden.. bum bum” (don’t hit the car, excident boom boom”…. really funny… the observation power of a child….
