This week: Moon Festival, how we're doing, and the quotable Keira (中文 ／Chinese edition)
Last Monday was Moon Festival in Taiwan. To celebrate we made pomelo hats and had a BBQ with friends.
I'm still adjusting to being a mom and Chinese student. Our new routine has necessitated more prayer and more coffee but less cleaning. :) Hence our house often looks like this:
A bright spot during our week is our friend Paul. He works in one of the apartment buildings we pass by daily. He always greets us with a big smile, snacks for Keira, and, often, a glass of fresh lemonade for me. Every time we visit he teaches me a new Taiwanese phrase (a different language from Chinese. Eventually, I'd like to learn both).
The quotable Keira (Chinese edition):
While on the potty, singing to herself: "Keira, jia you, jia you!" （You can do it!)
"Jude. Jude! Look. Zhege, red. Zhege, blue. Ok? OK?!" (This one, red. This one, blue.)
Just for the record, the things she was pointing to were actually green and pink...
“Jude。Jude！你看。這個，red。這個，blue。OK？OK？ ” （ 其實那個東西是綠色，粉色。）
After getting into a taxi, to the driver: "Chaozhou Jie!" (the name of the street we live on)
"I toot. I toot." (I'm cute.)
“toot” 聽起來 “cute”， 可是“toot” 的意思是 “放屁”
Have a great week.
