Sometimes, I wished I could change my name from…
Adrian Foo Hsien Yang
Foo Hsien Yang @ Adrian
Being the first person in almost every single name lists was a killing matter to me.
Lecturer A: Sir tired already. I just simply call a person from name list to help sir. Arian, Arian Foo (My name is pronounced as ADRIAN not ARIAN!). Help sir to solve this mathematical question.
My Coursemates: *Laughs* (Everytime sure “kena” called by sir).
Lecturer B: Tak silap saya, ada seorang di sini bernama Adrian kan?
Me: *Raised my hand*…
Lecturer B: Tolong baca soalan.
Me: *(=.=”)* (I have no choice)…
Before, Lecturer B display our coursework marks,
Lecturer B: Adrian yerr… nama anda pertama dalam senarai markah kerja kursus yah..
Whether I was born to be lucky or not with an English name, I felt
the fame and pride compared to those who doesn’t have any English name that people with English names are much easier to remember compare to those who doesn’t have one.
Till now, I can’t recognize my course mates name except for their faces.
