I’ve always called the twins by their first names ever since they were babies but when DH started referring to them as ‘Abang’ and ‘Adik’ (Big Brother and Small Brother), everyone else followed suit, including me, albeit reluctantly at first.
It was sometime in November 2007 when they started calling each other ‘Bang’ and ‘Dik’, as well. Click here to hear them calling each other ‘Bang’ and ‘Dik’ around that time, with a wee bit of coaxing from their Mama. [Quick note: ‘panggil‘ is the Malay word for ‘call’.]
All these sound clips, video clips and photos of the kids (especially of the twins!) are taking up the bulk of my computer memory now that I seriously need to get an external hard disk ASAP!
