More conversations with my 5-year old

We bought some haw flakes from the store and Yiu Yiu wanted to eat them.
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, can I have the biscuit?
Mummy: Which biscuit?
Yiu Yiu: Neh, the round round one ah, the one we buy (bought) just now.
Mummy: Oh…that's called sang jar peng
Yiu Yiu: Huh!!! Give birth holding biscuit?? (literal translation in Cantonese)
(I later realized that it's actually called 山楂饼,so it's not "give birth holding biscuit" dear :-))

I was washing dishes after dinner one day when Yiu Yiu came to ask for permission to drink her yoghurt drink.
Mummy: No lah dear, you are coughing. Don't drink cold drinks lah.
Yiu Yiu: Never mind lah, can one. Just now also papa let me drink Milo.
Mummy: I gotta scold your papa already. Coughing still let you drink cold drink.
Yiu Yiu: Don't scold him. Can you scold people who's older than you?
Mummy: Well, I scold him because he's wrong to give you cold drink when you are coughing.
She disappeared from the kitchen, only to return a moment later.
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, you don't need to scold him already. I told him nicely already and he knows he's wrong. So don't scold him, OK mummy.

We were on the bed getting ready to sleep and she got upset with something I said (which I can't remember what now).
Yiu Yiu: If you say that one more time, I'm going to go away.
Mummy: Go away to where?
Yiu Yiu: To papa's mattress.

Yiu Yiu: Mummy, mei-mei told a lie at Aunty Yoke Ling's house today.
Mummy (laughing): How can mei-mei tell lies? She cannot talk yet.
Yiu Yiu: Yes it's true. She said "Papa tata" But papa never beat her right?
