"Jom tengok wayang!" she said enthusiastically.

"Cerita apa?" we asked lazily.

"Koyot Ugly!" she said confidently.

"Apa dia, babe?" We thought we didn't hear it right.

"Koyot Ugly!" she repeated with more confidence.

"Kooo..kooo...Yott?" one of us asked back.

She nodded happily.

Hahahahahaha...we rolled on the floor. She was frowning. Clearly, she was unaware of the real situation. She didn't know what she was saying.

"Ka-Yo-Ti Ugly," my smartest friend corrected her.

"Tapi kenapa dia eja..." she was confused.

"Eja je macam tuh. Sebut dia macam aku ajar kau tadi. Dah...dah..siap. Buat malu je kalau org lain dengar..."

And we sang LeAnn Rhymes song - Can't Fight The Moonlight on the way home that night.

"Apa diorg minum tu ek?"

"Apa dia?"

"Tuuuuuuuu...." she showed with her lips.

"Hmmm...minuman dioranglah," I said.

"Tiger. Henneiken. Carlsberg. Aaaann Chooooorrrr..." she said slowly.

I barked a laugh.

"Apasal kau gelak?" she asked innocently.

"Anchor la pandai. Engggkeeeerrrrr..." I smiled when I pronounced that.

"Ooooo...gua bajet Annnn Chooorrr...."

"Bukan Hancur!" I laughed. My cheeks were warm.

"Malu...malu..." she put her face beneath the table.

"Dahlah...lainkali belajar sebut dulu, kay?"

My team's name was Ivory Coast. But our T-shirt was printed with something else:

Cote D' Ivoire

"Camne nak sebut nieh, Sha?" my friend asked me.

"Kote," I said while laughing.

"Ko...teee...wooiii...mencarut!!!" my friend blushed fiercely.

"Yelah, ejaan macam kote. Aku mana reti sebut. Takde sape ajar, babe. Serious yang ni aku tak tau," I said.

Indeed, I didn't know how to pronounce it. I was laughing at myself when I was trying to pronounce it. It was way too hilarous and diverting - all at the same time!

So, we just pretended we knew and refer the team as Ivory Coast.

* * *

"Kote main! Kote main malam ni!" she said enthusiastically.

"Sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssshhh!!!" All of us looked at her fiercely while giving a hard stare.

"Uik...apasal?" she asked dumbly.

"Apa kote-kote? Kau tak nampak semua org pandang kita ke babe?"

We blushed.

The whole restaurant were looking at us.

Kote main.

Shaarrkkkkssss...

Pls teach me how to pronounce the name of the country.
I can't afford to hear obscene stuff:P

hehe..bila jadi kes-kes macam ni, selalu sgt berharap ada kamus bersuara yang mampu ajar kita cara pronounce dgn betul. so boleh study sensorang sebelum ckp kat puplic.
