Watermelon in Bahasa

A brief note...

My son (NH) loves to speak English and I love to ask/tease him in English as well.

One day, we were going through old exercise books completed by my kids. I decided to test their Bahasa vocabulary. Q&A as follow:

DD: what is Elephant in Bahasa?
NH: Gajah !
DD: Pineapple, Banana, Watermelon in Bahasa ?
NH: hmm...Nenas, Pisang and WatermeLAN !
NY: no no no...water is English...
NH: oh ya....then it should be AIRmelon !

We were hillarious of NH statement....he is pure innocent on this mater...
Later we corrected him that Watermelon is Tembikai in Bahasa.
