Kids describe things in simple ways based on colour, shapes and sizes.
Allow me to illustrate it with my nephew Amin as example.
He sees my Brother, Deni as " Pakcik Gelap" because he got dark sawo- matang complexion.He describes my youngest brother , Asraf as "Pakcik Kecik" because he is a thin and lanky guy ala ala Ariel of that famous indonesian band Peter Pan (Cheh!)
And worst of all, he got special name for me and you can imagine how difficult my life could be with him tagging along for evening stroll when he screamed,
"Pakcik Besar! Pakcik Besar Tunggu Amin!"
Rasa macam langit runtuh menghempap jiwa.
