Gu gu 的 happy cake

Amongst 慧's mountain of toys, are some food replicas held together by gelco. You know... the kind where the child can "cut up" or "slice" with a "knife". And one of these slice-able replicas is a somewhat thick-set pizza.

Now, 慧 is quite crazy about birthday celebrations, especially her own. So from time to time, she will stage such celebrations to 望梅止渴 a bit, until the real thing comes along. That slice-able pizza therefore becomes her birthday cake. She calls it a "happy cake" though. Don't ask me why. *Shrug*

A couple of days ago, she held a pseudo birthday celebration again. She sang her own birthday song with my mum and proceeded to cut her "happy cake" (the pizza, which can be cut into four). She placed each piece on separate plates (replicas, of course) and mumbled to herself as she did so,

“這個是慧慧的。。。這個是 gong gong 的。。。這個是 ma ma 的。。。”

“還有一塊 leh?這一塊是誰的?”

“這個是 gu gu 的!收起來給 gu gu 吃。”

“哈哈哈!等 gu gu 囘來,chao xing ki liao loh!” (Translation for last bit: the cake would have turned bad and rotted a long time ago!)

126 days to go.

Yes, you're right about the double meaning.

And by the tone of her voice, she most certainly was referring to the second one.
