We had visitors from Perth last weekend, my friend Joanne and her family. Joanne left for Langkawi on Monday morning.
I told Amber Aunty Joanne will be leaving the following day, very early in the morning at 7am.
We were in the car, on way to dinner and suddenly she asked :
Aunty Joanne, tomorrow 7 o'clock you chang ying ah ??
We paused for 5 seconds and digested what she said.. and had a good laugh She thought 'chang ying' ie the mandarin word for 'fly' as in insect was the same as fly as in boarding an aeroplane.
That clearly shows someone wasn't paying attention in Mandarin class. Anyways... we had a good laugh !
