yesterday over at Pak Teh's house, Pak Teh was trying to teach Dayana how to speak Terengganu.

*pointing at my handbag* "ni hok mok nye" (or something like that lah. i pun fail cakap ganu).

he kept repeating it to Dayana a few times, then he told her to go tell me.

so Dayana comes up to me, babbles something about my bag which i couldn't apprehend, and then confidently tells me,

"mok mok mok mok!"


(satu rumah ketawa)

pointing to Angah, she says, "hey Angah, why you laughing?!" indignantly.

ok, first lesson, fail.
