It's Not Polite to Ask a Lady's Age

So I met this random cute girl (age unknown) at an engagement party --where I was actually not invited, but that's a whole different story--. She ran here and there looking very adorable and loveable, so I cannot help starting a conversation with her.

Me: Namanya siapa?
The cute girl: Ita.
Me: Ita umur berapa?
The cute girl: Umur baby.

Yeah, I forgot that it's not polite to ask a girl's age, and the cute girl sure knew how to answer that diplomatically, not hurting anyone but still managed to look super cute.

TanahKosong dot com

After her piano lesson, Feby (8 years old) always demands her piano teacher (read: me) to play with her. But I don't mind, because playing with Feby is never ordinary. Here is one of our "games."

So on that particular day, Feby decided to play directors. Both Feby and I were directors of a newly-established company and we were discussing about what our company should do. And here was her suggestion:

Feby (with a very serious, director-like tone): "Kita akan merebut tanah untuk industri plastik, kresek, dan teh botol berbagai macam rasa. Jangan sampai gagal. Jika gagal, kita akan merebut tanah lain, tapi di luar negeri! Makanya kita harus belajar bahasa Jerman. Saya sudah mengecek dan di Jerman ada 200 tanah kosong. Kalo masih gagal lagi, kita akan merebut tanah di Australia, Swiss, dan Arab Saudi."

Those words are exactly what came out of her. I do not add anything, honestly! Quite a little girl, don't you think? I'm looking forward to seeing what she's going to be when she grow up.

By the way, this is Feby:

She insisted that it was her hat instead of an umbrella.

Meet Little Kaka the Circus Kid

Little Kaka is three years old and she is as active as a child could be. Really. You could get exhausted just by watching her running here and there. What I like about her is how her mom and dad raise her. Liliana and Robert are a fun couple who teach a lot of things to this young child, and oh boy, things can get pretty funny.

She looks so innocent here. But not quite! ^^

Her mom told me about this a couple of days ago, and I cannot not sharing this to you all:

Kaka: Kita harus pake sabuk pengaman trus pake kaca trus dualapan ke awan.

Go ahead, laugh. More stories of her next time. ;)

Little Feby Plays Interior Designer

If there is one thing Little Feby (8 year old) ever wants to be, it is to be an interior designer. I haven't managed to find out why she is so obsessed with interior, though. Anyway, here are her explanation of some house interior terms:

Master dining room itu tempat untuk DJ main musik.
Maid's bedroom itu tempat untuk anak-anak di bawah umur.
Apartment itu 2 lantai, Ce Fanni, jadi tidak bisa kecil dong!
Corridor itu tempat untuk seminar, bisa muat 5000 orang.
Powder room itu tempat bikin bahan spa.

I hope in the future, when her dream of being an interior designer comes true, she already forgets the above explanation. If not, I cannot imagine how her clients' jaw will drop to see their corridors fit five thousand people. LOL.
