Wow, from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Thank you for responding. I understand exactly what you're saying.
The other day, I was pointing out to a friend a flock of tiny birds under the mulberry tree in my backyard. Without much thought, I blurted out, "Look, birdlings!" He looked at me quizzically, and repeated, "Birdlings?"
That is why I try to learn as much as I can, common American words and expressions.
Cheers to you too.
