This froggie is made from Yong Tau Foo. I cut into half from a piece of beacurd and sliced it. Crabmeat for its rosy cheek, nori/cheese for the eyes amd mouth. As my son has fishball and kuay teow for his lunch, I placed two piece of flower shape carrot behind its eyes for contrast. The effect is good and came out a cute-looking froggie. Hidden underneath the carrots are some blanched caixin.
My boy has been associated animals with rhymes like horsie, piggy, ducky, froggies, sheepy?? cowdy?? I was amused but I must admit that, definitely, it is not a good language. He also picked up expression very quickly such as 'actually', 'ai ya ya', 'oh man', 'oh my goodness', 'oh my god'. Children just absorbed like a sponge.
