HQ came back from school and reported:
HQ : Today, my friend's mama bring cake to school. But only eat with the Indian friends.
I thought the Indians must have some sort of celebration and brought some delicacy to share among the same race. HQ continued:
HQ : Only the Indians eat. The Malays didn't eat. The Chinese didn't eat. The English didn't eat.
Mama : English? Who's the English in your school?
As I know there's no Caucasian in HQ's pre-kindy.
HQ : Me la! All my other friends speak Chinese or Malay ma! Only I speak English wat!
Mama : *slap forehead*
I pointed out to HQ that Mandarin, Malay and English are languages that we speak. Chinese, Indian, Malay are the races. We are Chinese. The people in England are the English. English is the language and also the people (nationality). So, he repeated to reconfirm:
HQ : So, the Chinese (who) speak Chinese are Chinese. People in England are English. I am Chinese (who) speak English, so I am Chinese English, ya? Ya?
Adui... he really like to be associated with the English people ha??
