Raising Kaori : Season 1 Episode 04 - Chantek!

For Kaori, there is no difference if you're a man or a woman, if you're a boy or a girl, if she likes what you put on, for example, when I put on an abaya -- the abaya will fall gracefully from top to bottom, she will watch and say - 'Waaaw, mummy chantek' with a very impressed face.

I am not sure if the chantek she meant was actually the dress only, or me with the dress, which means I am not chantek wearing other clothes (mok juak). So previously we thought she understood the concept of chantek. Until one week, when she was so clingy with Daddy, she insisted to have her own version of Daddy King Chantek. By that time, we know that chantek means that you have anything unusual on you, but looking fancy to her. I took a picture once on a night she insisted to decorate her minimalist version of Daddy King Chantek:

The simplest Daddy King Chantek version. Little Batik Kebaya on top of the head, Johnson&Johnson's sticker at the center of forehead, and a no-handle glasses.
There were times when I entered the room with my husband typing on his laptop wearing a tudung with other elaborate toys on his head and shoulders.

So the other day on the flight to KL (her first flight after she speaks quite well and reacts towards her environment) we sat in the front half section on the plane, and was very near to the cabin crew demonstrating the safety procedures. Kaori watched the steward doing his thing, looking very impressed, and when the steward put on the life jacket --- suddenly there was a loud voice saying..

'Waaaaw, Abang chantek!'
