Hello, I’m Man … Part 2 January 25, 2007

Filed under: Family — mummydear @ 11:05 am

Talking abt making fun of a person’s name, I’m also guilty of it … …

An ex-colleague of mine is an Indonesian Chinese, his surname is Suparman; so u can guess what i called him, much to his annoyance.

To “add salt to the injury”, his name sounds like ‘Xian2 Dan4’ (salted egg) … together with the surname, can u guess what is it???

It is … …
‘Ultra-man’, because that’s what Ultra-man is known in Mandarin:
咸蛋超人’Xian2 Dan4 Chao1 Ren2′.

Yah, I’m mean. I knew he disliked it, so I stopped teasing him then.
Now retribution on my daughter … … 🙂

    Not so bad la. Tan lagi worse lor. You have Rambu Tan, Nelson Tan, Heren Tan (Ho Lang Tan … I.e. Make people wait). If you want to have special name like Sun or Moon, you kena Sun Tan or Moon Tan !!! If you have names like Garen Tan, you always Gei (3) Ren (2) Tan (2) (.. meaning kena tua !) How you tell me lah !!! So better just stick to Shawn Tan !!! Hahahahaha
