Miss 9’s name got a mentioned on Channel 7’s weather watch tonite because her school is currently doing the weather watch program. She was so excited waiting for the weather man to say her name. But the other half and I told her beforehand that there’s a big possibility that her name will be pronounced wrong because it’s a non ‘mat saleh’ name. So, we told her that it might be pronounced this way or that way but definitely not the way it’s supposed to be pronounced. So, bila the weatherman said her name, we burst out laughing because Mummy got it right! Miss 9 wasn’t too upset that her name wasn’t said the right way because she was prepared for it. But she was upset that her friends’ names were pronounced right. Nak buat macam mana kan, dah duduk negara mat saleh so lidah keras sikit lah nak sebut nama melayu ni, hehehe…. We thought we’ve chosen names for the Little Misses nama yang tak berbelit untuk disebut. Ye lah, kalau berbelit sgt, takut nanti Nana n Pop diaorang pun tak reti nak sebut, tak ke haru tu!
Doesn’t matter where she goes here, memang takkan ada lah mat saleh yang boleh sebut nama dia dgn betul so she’s quite used to it already. Same goes with Miss 4 3/4, but Miss 4 3/4 gets upset more easily bila orang tak boleh sebut nama dia dgn betul. Maybe for her, apalah yg susah sgt nak sebut nama dia tu, dia budak kecik pun boleh sebut dgn betul, takkan lah adult tak tau kot! Hahahaha. Luckily they go to an Islamic School so taklah ganjil sgt nama diaorang ni and the teachers all know how to pronounce their names correctly, hehehe….
This was tonite’s dinner. The other half calls this ‘heaven on a plate’ while we ‘normal’ people call it parmigiana with chips. I notice that when I masak lots of western food during the week, our cheese consumption goes way up. We use about 1kg of cheese a week usually, banyak kan! Most of it goes into the other half’s tummy. That’s why he needs to ride his bicycle to work everyday, wehehehe. But Mummy still maintain aje :-).
