When the Duck & the Chicken Sing..

.. together..????

Awful.
They make so much noise, really. I don't think they can even understand each other.

Malay has this saying, "..bercakap macam ayam bercakap dengan itik", simply put it means when two people who completely have different languages/ dialects tried to converse with one another.

That reminds me of my auntie's story ( I call her' Mak Long'), during my parents' wedding back in the 70's... My dad's family was in Penang and my Mom's came from Besut, Terengganu. My Mak Long said she couldn't understand at all what my Mom's relatives were saying.. because the dialects and the way they talked (very soft spoken compared to her side- Penangites- who most of the time, very outspoken and loud! Ha.). So she kept nodding and smiling all the time. If they laughed, she followed suit. Hehehe..


Here's one for Illustration Friday's- DUET:



The other thing I'd like to share here is a Gift Tag I made for a family friend's wedding last weekend. Just a simple 'Congratulations' card. Hope this 'duet' will lasts forever... :) God willing.

Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever.

Call it half-empty, half-full.
