The REASONS I DISLIKE my name.

Wednesday, March 31, 2010


It’s all started this afternoon…
Our boss went to airport and left us in the office.
(Yes I am telling you all that my boss gonna outstation and only will be back this Sunday! Weeee!!!)

We all were having discussion in doing the name cards for each of us, so we start writing down our name.
Since four of us are Chinese, so they suggested just use Chinese name.

But… here’s an issue comes up, supposed to say a bloody joke.
Okay, Ms Chang’s à LK Chang (Chang Lee Kien)
Then mine à ML Ng (Ng May Ling)

What’s on your mind?

One of the guy laughed out loud when he saw this. We all start questioning him what’s wrong with it.

He says: “ML = Make Love! “

Yes, his words can makes all people in the office laughing like hell.
Good, it’s my name again.
I am wondering how he can be such yellow minded person?!




I am just wondering how come my name, no matter in which terms, people just can make fun of it.

In primary school, teachers and friends used to call me as 吴美玲 or MayLing.
 Those naughty playful boys in the class created such a “nice” nickname for me – Caroline = Carrot-line.
How nice of them huh?
Well actually not only that, there’s a lot more they can think of just by the single word of Caroline.

I also realized people having difficulty in spelling and pronounce my name CORRECTLY.

Sometimes I can just laughed when receive fax from customer which addressed to me, and they spelled my name wrongly. Peeps, there’s a big different between “Caroline” and “Corolla” okay?

So, I guess that’s the reason I prefer people just call me Carol or Kathleen or May.

There’s once customer called me as “Harold”, I am speechless. That’s a big different darling.

I would like to share with you how many coincidences happened on my name in my past relationships with my former boyfriends.
He told me that his former girlfriend named Merlyn and therefore they given her Chinese name as “Mei Ling” ß My name MayLing!
He told me that he’s having a god-sister named Carolß My name Caroline!
He told me his former girlfriend named Caroline too.  ß My name Caroline!

[P/s: I don’t feel like mentioning which they are at here. They are all now are my past tense only.]
Those are actually bothered me a lot in the past. 

Wokay, I don't feel like talking about it anymore.
It's just gonna ruined my happy mood. 

Geez... I played with my phone's stylus.



Seems like it's kind hard compare to below one: 




See... I still can write in Chinese character aye! :P


LOL! My colleagues said my handwriting looks like kiddo's , is it?


Just for Ethan arrrr... :p

  15. Great that's good news you can still 'write' ABCs, so cakar ayam to me is no surprise. Know why? Since all are so IT savvy with so much high tech laptop & PDA what nots and so used to keyboards most likely some may forget how to write from 'A-Z' kakaka. My writing very nice one *ahem* like from the typewriter becoz kena write 1000 lines most of the time as punishment in school. "I must submit my homework in time x 1000 times" or "I must raise my hand when I know the answer x 1000 times" so on and so forth. That's why I have got pretty hand writing, come to think of it must thank that teacher:P. Cool.. tQ
