My Name

Whenever people ask where my Chinese name came from, I would proudly tell them it was inspired by the late songbird Teresa Teng. My Dad is a fan of her songs and naturally I was given the name.

Until yesterday I found out that my Mum was the one who gave me my Chinese name and that my Dad insists he only knew Teresa Teng's songs long after I was born. And who did my Mum get my name from? My uncle's ex-girlfriend! Waahh!! Spoil liao lah my name! I'm going to stick to my original version and live in denial for the rest of my life.

You gotta warn me that you're going to write stuff like this. I nearly spit out my dinner on the computer screen because I was trying so hard not to laugh.
