Of Fuck Names

Singapore is fast overtaking Hong Kong as the Asian country with the silliest English names. HongKongers usually go for simpler names . i.e Noodle, Sky, Fruit. We ,being Singaporeans, have to be special, have to be number one. We usually go for complex sounding ones. We have the ah lians naming themselves after chi-chi brands. i.e Chanel Ang. Gucci Goh. We like to bring in Greek and Latin influences. When we are clueless, we just name the child after an idol. i.e Beckham.

The worst I've heard and met is Bubble. *cue for slapping your forehead*

Enter Singapore Idol hopeful Primero Ang. My hor fun was screaming to jump out of the nostrils when I heard that name. It didn't help that he was trying a little too hard. Who the fuck sings a Blue song and expects to be taken seriously? Gastric juices were working overtime. I sincerely hope his brother isn't named Cefiro.

Still touching on names, we now come to Taufik. Yes, the one who is making a name for his Big Gulp antics rather than his singing. Overheard on the MRT train:

" Taufik's brother is call tau pok. His sister is call tau gay, father call tau kua. Mother is call tau kee."

    Primero Ang singing Blue pretty much sums up everything I absolutely despise of Singapore Idol. And any other XYZ Idol for that matter.
