    What is this in the old lady's...

    What does this video say? (from 11:53)

    https://www.facebook.com/rainbowtime...6757095687120/

    Here is what I heard:

    What is this in the old lady's walo?
    Bat.

    What is this in the old lady's walo?
    (cough)
    Oh, ok, coming your mouth, honey.

    What is this in the old lady's walo?
    What is this? What is this, honey?
    It's a meow, meow. It's a cat, right?

    What about.....what about...this?
    What is this?
    What is this in the old lady's walo?
    What is this?
    Spider. Ya, that's a spider.

    I listened to that for a while. I did hear the part about the spider. I didn't hear "walo" (wallet?), but maybe I didn't listen long enough.

    It's interesting that they switch between Chinese and English with no problem.

    The part comes from 11:53 (or -2:01, when you count down from it )

    She did. Her voice rises on the first syllable of the word swallow, which is what might be causing the problem.

    Actually, I heard 'odd lady' in English, but she said 'old lady' in Chinese.
