Ba-Chik and Pa-Lang

My 3 years of age nephew heard my ummi calling me 'Bang Chik' (as what my siblings,mom and dad call me) and he started to call me Bang Chik as well, with the wrong pronunciation i.e. Ba-Chik instead of Bang Chik.

"No,no,no..You can't call me Bang Chik", I politely told him.

"Follow after me. 'Pak Lang'.Pak-Lang,Pak-Lang,Pak-Lang" I repeatedly saying infront of him so he could 'absorb' the term 'Pak Lang' and hopefully replace it with Bang Chik.

He keeps on mumbling 'ba-chik,ba-chik on and on and I'd almost surrender and giving up on him.

He continued his playing activities as usual and suddenly he came infront of me and uttered "Pa-Lang"..
Hahaha..At last..Though a bit mispronounced it i.e. Pa-Lang istead of Pak Lang, but OK lah..Budak-budak kan..

Kids absorb things very fast.I mean super fast.At one time I walked with my arms crossing (tangan silang kat dada ala-ala Boss) and the next thing I found out my nephew who was 2 and a half years at that time walking behind me with his arms crossing as well.
So,no bad words from now on..Cakap kena baik-baik and of course tunjukkan contoh yang baik kepada semua

"Children were born in fitrah/pure.Their parents are the one to colour them either to be majusi,yahudi or a christian."

But of course peranan Pak-Pak menakan pun penting.. :)
