.: Lapsed reality :.


It was one of those days. A friend asked a favour from me to interview some parents. 

Friend :: Some of them can only speak Chinese. That's where you come in. :DDD 

I didn't know what to expect. I was speaking to the teachers in English when the parents came in. 

Parent :: Sorry ya. I don't speak good English. At home we speak Cantonese. My daughter teach me English. She oso teach her grandfather. Always sing one~ 

The parents put in so much effort to speak in English that I didn't have the heart to tell them that we can conduct the interview in Chinese. Plus it was heartwarming to see the interactions between the children and their parents. 

Language isn't always a barrier.
