Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Meet the neighbours -

Ping Kuek Sammi Lim caught up with a Malaysian couple whom she met in New York some years ago. Wan Yin, Ping Kuek and lit­tle Lee Lerk joined her for brunch at Delir­ium Cof­fee in Da­mansara Heights to chat about car­toons, or­ange juice and trav­el­ling as a fam­ily.

Lee Lerk: Po­coyo!

What’s that? Wan Yin It’s a Span­ish kids pro­gramme. He saw that Papa has his phone out. Now he wants to watch ‘Po­coyo’. Ping Kuek Bat­tery’s go­ing to run out soon. [ They give in to Lee Lerk] L Fire truck. Look at the con­cen­tra­tion on his face. [ Af­ter a while, Lee Lerk looks sad] L Pato? P Pato went home. No more bat­tery. W Pato is a char­ac­ter in the car­toon. He’s a duck. Some­times when we’re eat­ing duck and I feed it to him, I tell him ‘This is Pato’. [ Laughs]

He kind of has an Amer­i­can ac­cent. W That’s be­cause he watches YouTube. [ Laughs] L Or­ange juice. W Good? Thumbs up!

Is that his favourite drink? W I think it’s the only thing he knows how to pro­nounce.

Lee Lerk What year did you guys move back from New York again? W Ping moved back first. I think it was 2010; one year be­fore I did. Lee Lerk was born in 2013.

So Lee Lerk never got to ex­pe­ri­ence New York? W We vis­ited when he was ten months old. P Though I doubt he re­mem­bers much.

I love your fam­ily pic­tures taken at the Rain­for­est World Mu­sic Fes­ti­val last Au­gust. W We took him to see the orang utans in Se­meng­goh and got so lucky. The minute we walked in, Ed­win, the sec­ond largest pri­mate

Wan Yin who’s 19 years old, made an ap­pear­ance.

Weren’t you guys just in Hanoi? Is it a kid-friendly des­ti­na­tion? W Not really. But when it rained dur­ing the last two days of our trip, we ended up go­ing to a lot of mu­se­ums. P It’s very his­tor­i­cal. The lo­cals are quite cul­tural.

Lucky kid. He’s al­ways on the road with mum and dad. W We bring him every­where!
