Random Thoughts...

Either I'm losing it, or I'm too stressed up...

MSN conversation at work. No, I wasn't that free Ash. I was really busy. I just wanted a break.

Steffi: u noe, i just realized
Steffi: it's gonna be difficult for us to explain to a foreigner
Steffi: how our name system works
Steffi: :S
Sugi: y
Steffi: if we go to japan, they'll tell u, the surname comes first, then the individual's name
Steffi: if they come here
Steffi: we'll tell them
Steffi: if you see a chinese, the english name will be the first name
Steffi: then
Steffi: after that it will be the surname
Steffi: and then followed by the chinese name
Steffi: if the chinese doesn't have an engish name
Steffi: then the first word is the surname
Steffi: and the second and third word is the individual's name
Steffi: if u see a malay
Steffi: the first word is the individual's name
Steffi: the second word, normally bin or binti, indicates whether the person is a male or female
Steffi: bin for male and binti for female
Steffi: then
Steffi: following that, is their father's name
Steffi: they have no family name
Steffi: and then
Steffi: if u see an indian...
Steffi: *takes a deep breathe*
Steffi: well
Steffi: u get what i mean?
Sugi: ya
Sugi: but now loads of indians r followin the western style
Sugi: like north indians
Sugi: north indians hav family names
Sugi: but i think dat is so much better
Sugi: yes i agree
Sugi: ppl wud be confused
Steffi: yeah
Steffi: that's why i said
Steffi: i haven't even started on ppl like Elizabeth Jessica Ronald (random name to replace my friend's name)
Steffi: and her last name is NOT a family name
Steffi: altho it follows the western style, like mine
Steffi: and in my case it is the western style ALTHO the second word is chinese name
Steffi: see?
Steffi: explaining to foreigners is going to be one hell of a problem
Sugi: hahaha
Sugi: dun bother
Sugi: just say 'call me steph'
Sugi: it'll make ur life so much asier
Sugi: hahaa
Sugi: *easier
Steffi: i mean if they ask lah

Well. Call me Steph. Or Steffi. Or Stephy. Or Steff. Maphy also can. Cheers.

n u r telling me u are not free steff?

oh c'mon...who d'ya think u r kidding?

At 9:33 AM, Blogger ashes said...

oh yea..forgot to leave the actuall comment related to tis post..
hehe..hey i hav a family name..u guys know rite.
P***ash Na*biar

but having family name kinda interesting isnt it?
haha..i hav had loads of attention coz of this family name tat i carry.

not great attention ok..its more to "teasing".
somehow my family name is the name of some great famous villain in old indian movies.
so they love to call me by my 2nd name rather than my 1st.
sometimes its irritating..the moment they hear my full name..they will start laughing (indians).
and somemore i dun really look like an indian..sesat case..most of them think tat i must hav been adopted from a malay family or somethin..

even apiit lecturers hav teased me!
and my malay frens in skool used to call me

"p***ash na*biar anak terbiar.."

Oooooo Nambiar the villian.. He is a great actor la..

so u shud be proud! ehehe

its better associating ur name wid such people (altho kena teased a lot) compared to having a name dat tormented, mutated, killed, twisted and everythign else under the sun.. isisn't that hard to pronounce my 7 letter name?

btw...warphy.. answer me!!!!

At 12:55 PM, Blogger Jyrenze said...

Hahaha, ash you can be the next villian... come on its better than my name, ppl in primary n secondary make fun of it. Finally I dont use that name anymore :p Everyone in the office doesnt know my chinese name.

...I didn't know that my nonsensical rambling will receive so many comments. Looks like losing it, good in a way.

Jyrenze: Puny, I mean Pun :P How did they tease you last time?

Sugi: Hey Sugus...I've allowed Maphy, good enough already lah. Warphy sounds so...warped...

ashes: You villain, you...Anak terbiar! >.<

yslim: I wonder how you got teased...I wonder whether you even got teased at all.
