Name Game

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*

OMG Pam (baku) is such an awesome name!

Like when you're become a teen and grow pimples can call pam minyak.

When you hit puberty can call pam darah... then when you become a big mama can call pam susu wah so cool!
