If you’re happy and you know it, kill a mosquito

Z was at Grandma’s and grandma clapped at a mosquito tormenting or threatening her.

Z saw her “clap” her hands and imitated Grandma, beaming her beatific smile as usual.

Grandma smiled back and said in Singlish: “Zoe beat mosquito?” which is a literal translation from dialect – “pa mung/bung”.

So now when we want Z to clap, we tell her to beat mosquito.

Then she will clap, and beam beatifically.

[Disclaimer: No mosquitoes were harmed by Z’s clapping to “beat mosquito”.

Unfortunately.]
