Ka Diyan-Ka Diyan

Just when I thought Rama was losing her Tagalog, she pulls this on me.

Me: Rama, when we're eating, let's not go away from the table to play. Let's just eat.

In a sing-song, I kept reminding her: Keep going, keep going...

Rama: Keep going-keep going ka diyan.

Yehey, bakla pa rin si Rama! ;-)

So you don't talk to her in Tagalog anymore? Sayang naman, she's so verbally precocious.

I'd say it's about 50-50, Katrina. I also have to remind myself :-)

Yeah, even with my pamangkins -- who live here! -- we are trying to make ourselves speak more Tagalog to them, because they don't speak it. Seems teaching bilingualism isn't as simple as we'd like. :-/
