Ok, share another name.. In advance, Sorry if i had offend anyone for saying this name!
Got once a customer called request for service and he gave his surname as Mr Beh. becuz i need to registered his full name juz in case the companies have many Behs rite... then he said Beh T H.. ur know lar, the more u dun want tell the more i want to probe.. so i asked for the FULL NAME and explain initals not accepted. then he said his name is Beh Tah Han.. AIYO!!!! imagine i was slogging my day thru and hearing this name, i cant help but want to luff of cuz not on the phone with him lar...
How come different ah? my bro-in-law's first cousin(girls) also follow leh, they are "Pang Kia ...", & her father-in-law'generation is " Pang Ke...", sound damn funny, all became Farting..vocation..
anyway never mind right? cos no one goes around calling them by their dialect name. most prob they will have their own english names to be called. i didn't follow the family cos it is for guys only.. to carry on the family name ma... girls follow for what?
Since this topic is about names, I have a joke to share :
Caller : Hello, can I speak to Annie Wan?
Operator : Yes, you can speak to me.
Caller: No, I want to speak to Annie Wan!
Operator: You are talking to someone! Who is this?
Caller: I'm Sam Wan. And I need to talk to Annie Wan! It's urgent.
Operator: I know you are someone and you want to talk to anyone! But what's this urgent matter about?
Caller: Well... just tell my sister Annie Wan that our brother Noel Wan was involved in an accident. Noel Wan got injured and now Noel Wan is being sent to the hospital. Right now, Avery Wan is on his way to thehospital.
Operator: Look if no one was injured and no one was sent to the hospital, then the accident isn't an urgent matter! You may find this
hilarious but I don't have time for this!
Caller: You are so rude! Who are you?
Operator: I'm Saw Lee.
Caller: Yes! You should be sorry. Now give me your name!!
actually my name is Chen Pei and unfortunately dialect is Tan-Pui..
Ivy, your ex is Hockchia or Hockchew? coz my surname is suppose to be pronounced as Thing in dialect too.. i suppose Thing-Pui will be better than Tan-pui?... Damn the registra who spelled my sirname wrongkt in birth cert! now i m stuck with this name forever!
