"Playing dead"

I was in the hall the other nite, as usual, sitting comfortably on my favourite sofa watching my TV series. Suddenly Destinee came towards me and held my hand.

Destinee: Mommy, mommy, come play with me.
Mommy: *Huh!? Aiyo, I want to watch my TV series, but in order not to disappoint her, got to drag myself unwilling away from the sofa* What do u want to play?
Destinee: *handed me a pistol-like toy fitted (L-shaped) from her imitation of Lego* Mommy, mommy, u point gun at me.
Mommy: *Huh!?* Point gun at u. Why?
Destinee: Mommy, u point lar.
Mommy: Okay, okay. *Point the 'gun' at her*.
Destinee: Okay, mommy, u shoot me now.
Mommy: HUH!? Shoot u? *wondering*
Destinee: Ya lor, mommy, u point gun at me and shoot me.
Mommy: *still blur blur, but point the gun at her*. Bieng! Bieng!
Destinee: Aiyak! *fell down and laid on the floor with her eyes open*
Mommy: *seeing dat she didn't move for a few seconds, I decided to call her* Yau Yau! *ee, no response wor but she was staring at me. Touched her. No response again. Called her again* Yau Yau!
Destinee: *grinning* Yau Yau sei jor mar (Yau Yau's dead oredi mar).
Mommy: Hahaha, Yau Yau's dead but ur eyes are open wor.
Destinee: Hai mar, (Yes mar) if Yau Yau close eyes, cannot see mommy lor.
Mommy: Ar?! *roll eyes*
Mommy: Okay, okay, u stay there, mommy take camera and take a snapshot of u 'lying dead on the floor', okay?
Destinee: Okaylor.

Destinee 'playing dead'

whoa....abit worrying how kids pick up so fast from the tele huh..

Acting with Tiara? Way to go, way to go. And I don't like the idea of her being an actress leh.

Hahaha, ya lor "sze pu ming mu".

Aiyo, I'm playing with her everyday, playing 'masak-masak', going to school, with her Barbie dolls, puzzles etc. Heehee, it's good in a way, like I'm turning back to my younger days.

Zara's mama:
Not from CSI lar. Only mommy will watch CSI, Destinee doesn't like. I think she learnt from the present 9.30 p.m. TVB series from Astro - 'Sui Wu Juin Mo Kan Doh'.

Hahaha, ur No. 2 is even cuter. Kids of nowadays are very good at acting and pretending.

Hahaha, she only like to watch 'Ah Wong' (starring Kwok Chun On). It's mommy who loves to watch those detective series.

Aiyo, don't scare me lar. I love to watch those dissecting scenes leh esp. dissecting of the body and checking what's wrong. And I hate the parts where they are going to cut the body or the brain up but suddenly CENSORED. *duh* My frens oso tell me dat I'm very 'pin tai' wan. Kakakakaka.

Ya ya, dat's why sometimes we have to becareful what we are watching. But normally my gal doesn't like to watch too violent scenes. She loves her cartoon programmes most esp. Channel 63 on Astro.

At Thu Mar 23, 03:28:00 PM, Blogger Tracy said...

Ur girls played the game with u too?

Hahaha. I had my turn to pretend 'dead' oredi.

Des will oso like to repeat and repeat at whatever she's playing. So she was 'dead' so many times dat day too. Kekekekeke.

Blur Blur:
Destinee will oso cry if I lie down and don't move for some time and will be shouting 'mommy, don't be like dat, open ur eyes!?

Ya lor, next time will be LS turn to play 'dead' with u. I'm sure boys will prefer to play with guns more.

Dear Leng Jai Ryan:

Words from Destinee: Welcome, welcome to my mommy's blog. Actually my mommy is writing just about anything dat happens. She'll sometimes not only write about my stories but oso her own happenings.

Heehee, u think I'm a good actress? My mommy says I always pretend. Adults just don't understand dat sometimes we need to play and pretend, rite?

Oh! Thats too cute! You must have been watching too many violent movies around her. Aiyoyo my hubby loves to watch kungfu movie, I'm so worried the kids will give me kungfu kicks one day...

At Fri Mar 24, 01:35:00 PM, Blogger Jason said...

Hahaa... Too much TV already lah.

At Fri Mar 24, 04:16:00 PM, Anonymous michelle said...

Yeah sometimes me like u, watching TVB series, ask children to disturb daddy. You should ask her to pretend dead until TVB series over. :P

At Fri Mar 24, 05:07:00 PM, Blogger Tracy said...

I don't usually watch those violent movies when she's around and she doesn't seem to like watching them. So, I don't how she learnt dat from.

Kungfu kicks? Most probably u'll get 'kicks' from ur son. So, be prepared! Kekekekeke.

Nah. She loves to watch her cartoon programmes only. Cartoon programmes got shooting scenes meh? Astrol Channel 63 wor? (I won't tune in to any other cartoon channels which shows violent scenes).

Aiya, I forgot, must be kakak who taught her this 'play'. Must ask her tonite.

Disturb pappy? Pappy sometimes needs to read the paper too. She loves to disturb me more.

Hahaha, u think ur suggestion will work? I doubt it. She'll only be 'dead' for a little while and will be up the next moment.

That's really too much TV woh, next time she plays this game, you act like doc / nurse to save her lah...

At Sun Mar 26, 12:38:00 AM, Blogger 1+2mom said...

She is so cute. Just like my son he like to play pretend. He take the gun shoot me and i lay down, they love to play but i dun think they understand what is mean. When i watch this type of movie they seem not interested.

At Sun Mar 26, 06:57:00 PM, Blogger Tracy said...

Shopping Mum:
Hahaha, play doc and nurse? She's always playing dat with me with her doctor set. Always asking me to pretend to cough, cough and use the stethoscope to check on me.

1+2 mom:
Don't underestimate our kids. They may pretend not to know but they sure learn very fast and once they watch a scene, it'll be 'computerised' in their minds and u'll never know when they'll suddenly 'hak lei yat thiew' (scare u) with what they've learnt.

hahaha.... definately too much TV LOL...

you didn't continue do the "ai yah, lui ah... you don't die ah... you leave me alone how I going to live without you ah... boo hoo hoo... *drama*." more fun LOL...

At Mon Mar 27, 02:25:00 PM, Blogger Tracy said...

It was the opposite. When I was 'dead'and with my eyes closed, she was the one "boo-hooing" and asking me not to die. LOL

At Fri Mar 31, 04:45:00 PM, Blogger Adrian & Alvan said...

Waiyo..can give her a "Kam Jeong Cheong" better than Maggie Cheong..heehee..
**P/s..Adrian also like to play like this, but he tak boleh tahan laugh, die liao also lol..:p, but hor if I not free I use to play this with him, shout him die liao, laying down cant disturb me mah, wake up shout again..kakaka..

At Fri Mar 31, 07:03:00 PM, Blogger Tracy said...

Hahaha, ur Adrian is so cute. Die oredi cannot tahan and still can laugh.

Wah, u're so smart by using the method so as not to disturb u. But the method will no longer be in use later - I'm sure he'll outsmart u.
