Things in the Kitchen

I believe you’ve been in a situation where you wanted something in the kitchen, but when you asked for it, all you could say was: “Please give me that… that thing [pointing to the object].”

Here are some of the objects that are commonly found in kitchens but not commonly asked for in English πŸ™‚

  1. Thank you very much, now I know what to call a “wok-chan – canto” haha as well as mortar & pestle and we often incorrectly say “big chopper knife”.

  2. Those clever would choose cleaver and those clever average would pick cleverage and those dumb like me go for cleavage haha.

  3. When my 3 years plus girl said “I want that (this), mummy”, I will take the opportunity to teach her new words!! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Rose. Glad to see your girl’s helping you out in the kitchen. Good to start her early; she would eventually learn a bit of responsibility, too.

      Cheers πŸ™‚

  4. Learning about ‘cleavage’ in the kitchen? Guys…. {Roll eyes}
