Here is our conversation; a conversation between a subordinate and her superior.
Boss: Madam C, you know what...?
Me: Yes, ma'am?
Boss: Heng, the Year 6 boy ...
Me: Ok, Heng? What happened to him?
Boss: This morning, he came to me and asked me ... Teacher, may I help you?
Me: Heng spoke to you in English?
Boss: Yes! He spoke fluently. I was taken aback but I did answer him in English, too.
Me: Lovely! In fact, he always speaks to me in English though he could hardly write.
Boss: You've succeeded in capturing the kids' heart! Congratulations, dear!
I was flabbergasted!
