The Husband asked me a question the other day:
The Husband: If you could pick your own name, what would it be?
Pam Song: Urm...
The Husband: Think so long means you're happy with your name lah!
Pam Song: Well, I would rather be "Pam" than "Pamela".
The Husband: People already call you "Pam" wat.
Pam Song: Ya, but it's not the same as being "Pam" from the start.
I'm sure there was a point in my life when there was another name I would have preferred having. Probably back in the days when my name was made fun of and was badly pronounced by my Bahasa Baku-educated teachers and schoolmates. -_-''' But after 27.5 years of living with "Pam", I think I've grown to like it. But The Husband asked a good question that made me think. And I'm still thinking. Haha. So I'm going to ask you the same:
If you could pick your own name, what would it be?
p/s: In hindsight, all I can say is thank goodness my parents didn't think of naming me Doris, Bella or Petunia. Don't like those names at all. *shiver*
