Batak/Pomfrit

Ok, funny story time: On Sunday the team went to the barbecue place that I have been taking them to - near the church - but this time without me to do the ordering... They managed to order the chicken sandwiches and hamburgers, but they also wanted some chips (fries) on side.

So, Iris asked the waiter for "fries". Blank stare. So, she asked for "patat" (which is potato in Dutch). The waiter goes "batak"? And Iris thinking he was understanding from her hands making signs like "fries" goes "yes, yes" and uses her hand to show "5" portions... And was quite proud that she had successfully communicated what she wanted...

So, needless to say they were all a little surprised when he brought 5 portions of chicken legs!!! Oh well...
