Multi-lingual?

It's between adults... why? Simply because we don't want En En to know we are talking about her. She understands on whether we complain anything bad about her behaviours, habits or tricky actions,... or even when we praise her (don't want her to be too proud of herself too much)... So, we speaks:

- Mandarin - She will reply us...

- Hokkien - She understands and will react immediately...

- English - She will understand eventually but Ah Kong said it's a good training as she will learn by ears...

- Malay - She understand too, imagine she knows what our Indon maid was trying to tell her too!

Now we are back to mummy's hometown for holiday, normally we speak Mandarin at home too BUT mummy is forced to pick up and speak HAKKA!!! Well, this little girl is definitely blank with this language! Haha...

It's amazing how they pick up the languages jes by listening to our conversations. Good that she can understand so many languages.
