October 13th, 2007 · 5 Comments

Angie was talking to Alicia on the phone the other day and Mollie (2 1/2 years old) was posted right beside here saying 『媽媽! 媽媽!』which sounds almost like “Mama! Mama!” in English except it was clear she was using Chinese. It is hard to explain but those who live in Taiwan or who have lived […]
