Joseph has been getting himself acquainted with mandarin oranges. Actually he doesn't know the difference between sunkist oranges and mandarin oranges. What he does know is that he loves oranges. So when I gave him a kam, he was thrilled to find that he could easily peel these. See how he has one thumb in each orange.
He managed to peel a kam all by himself, put the orange (minus the skin) into his mouth and then spit out the seed. I tried to teach him some new words related to what he was doing. Our conversation went like this...
me : Joe, what is this?
Joe : Orange.
me : No, this is mandarin orange. It's called kam. Jojo chiak kam.
Joe : Mama chiak eok (medicine in hokkien). Jojo chiak kam. Mama chiak eok.
I couldn't help but laugh. He associates words really fast.
He looks left...
Then he looks right...
Then when he thinks it's all clear, he sticks a straw into the orange to suck out the juice!
