Mommy Kyoko's Humble Machiya(マミー・コココのコージー・マチヤ)

Postby MsKyoko » Mon Oct 30, 2017 11:22 pm

Hi,I am a SAHM of two homeschooled 11 year old girls who are attending primary school in 2018 and I have another two girls on the way.Not exactly new to KSP as I was here 3 months ago to explore positive parenting and learn how to be a better parent through discussions and sharing of ideas here.

If you are interested in chatting with me,why not step into my humble machiya?

Took Japanese in JC last time but now a bit rusty haha.

Spoke Japanese to DH to mask our conversations in front of DDs sometimes.They can understand Cantonese and Teochew so cannot use them if we want to have private conversations among ourselves.

DH knows a bit of German from watching German war movies.

He learnt Japanese from watching anime with English subtitles since young.His Japanese is only so so only just like mine.

Do your kids know how to speak dialect too?

I was wondering why my Deliveroo is not here yet?He sure takes his time to go and buy the seafood beehoon soup and oyster omelette that I wanted.

No they don't. But we did explain a few phrases to them so they will start guessing whenever they hear similar phrases.

For DDs,their Teochew is 8/10 in speaking and understanding because their dad taught them.

Their Cantonese is 6/10 but still passable.

Talking about Mandarin,DDs' Mandarin or Chinese have a long way to go.

But there is still lots of room for improvement for them.

Now catching my reruns of Growing Up Seasons 1-6 on Toggle now while waiting for my midnight chow.

Be careful when eating oyster when you're pregnant. Undercooked or raw oysters can cause blood infection.
