biscuit time
crystal and mama were having afternoon tea with butter cream biscuit. crystal took one and separated the biscuit.
crystal : this is jing-jing's (took the one with butter cream) and this is mama's (gave the other side without butter cream to mama, then dip into the tea).
mama : thank you, Jing-jing.
crystal : (after eating it, took another pieces, separated it again.. happened several times). this is jing-jing's, this is mama's.
mama : mama wants that one with butter cream.
crystal : this is half. (maybe she meant: she only had half, couldnt share with mama.. lol)
mama : yes, mama wants that one.
crystal : this is half. (with convincing expression . .wah pelit nih..hehehe..)
mama : yes, mama wants that half.
crystal : (took another piece which hadn't been separated and gave to mama). this is for mama.

later on ... great-grandma woke up from her nap.
mama : Jing-jing, give this biscuit for Tai-tai. ask Tai-tai to eat the biscuit.
crystal : (handle the biscuit to great-grandma). Tai-tai .. eat biscuit.
g-g'ma : oh, xie xie Jing-jing !
mama : Jing-jing, was the biscuit delicious?
crystal : delicious.
mama : we have eaten it up. next time when mama comes back from office, mama will buy again for you, ok?
crystal : buy it together with Jingjing.
mama : ok, buy it together with Jingjing.
crystal : buy one tin. don't buy much.
mama : (*smile*) you mean buy one pack? you know, one tin is very much. come here, mama show you how much one tin is. (pointing an old biscuit tin to her)
cyrstal : buy one pack. don't buy much.
