Nick names

I'm sure many of us have nick names when we're younger, or even until today...

As far as I can remember, my mum used to call me 'chao mei'(pronounce in Hokkien, as 臭美) when I was a kid. Not because I smell nasty but I really dont know why she called me this, LOL. All I know is that this nick name sounds very bad and 'ugly'.

As for my brother, he calls me 'fatty' since I was younger even until today, even though I am not as chubby as before (during schooling time), even though I'm someone's wife now.. =_=
The reason is, I was really chubby when I was a kid, especially during primary schooling time. This name doesn't sound nice for a girl, but I actually used to it already.. LOL.

And when I was in University, my coursemates used to call me 'ah york', simply because that's my middle name. They will call out loud when they see me from far... =_=" But I actually quite like this one cause it sounds like egg yolk, hahaha :D

What about you? Do you have any special nick names?


  1. U tell us all your nicknames.... die... time to call u by your nicknames instead of Hayley...LOL.

  2. First visit here.

    My nick name in my family is tijiwing because my teacher couldn't pronounce my name! Actually my elder sisters taught by the same teacher also had similar nicknames (ti-eewing and tikiwing) but they thought mine was the funniest and it stuck! =___="

  3. I was called "a single bone" when I was in secondary school because I was thin just like a bone :D but it is a different story now, though still thin but got belly already after having 2 kids.

  4. My mum told be before, those old days ppl used to call their kids with funny nick names, in the hop they growing up healthy and strong!

    Ever since I was a kid, everyone keeps calling me BB, probably due to my last name 'Bee'!

    Then when I start schooling, my classmates started to call me 'barley water', 意米 sounds like 玉美(my Chinese name)!^^

  5. Chloe's nickname is also BB cos she didn't have a name for 2 weeks after she was born. For 2 weeks, I just called her BB (for baby) and everyone started following me and the name got stuck until now ;) As for me, I used to be called zirafah or giraffe in school cos I was the tallest girl in school :)

  6. 哈哈哈~my dad and mon call me boy~

  7. U'll never believe this is my nickname. Hahaha. During Form 6,the guys overheard Angeline as "Margarine"....So ended, i have that cute nickname!

  8. I know why your mom called you this name. I used to my two girls "chao lang" (臭人)also. lol!

    梦旅飞, ah boy or ah girl is very common also ho!

    Angeline, LOL.. now that you mentioned, Imma call you Margarine next time :P

    Yan haha, why ha?

  10. haha, i think you like your nickname since you are publicising it here, haha!! i heard older people like to give kids some ugly nickname because they believe in that way, they will grow better opposing what is being called~~ :)

  11. Hahaha... my primary/secondary friends all call me "Nek" since young cos I am the eldest in class (January baby :D) and we like to play happy family in primary school so I am the Nenek @.@

    But college and uni friends don call me nick names :)

  12. Can see your chubby chubby little girl photo kah?

  13. Hi Hayley, ha ha, interesting....I guess most have nick names.
    My contractors used to call me 'koh loh', because of my height.
    Or 'cowboy' because of my big buckle...
    But I guess apart from that....just my name.
    You have a nice day.

  14. SK, yes I heard about the same thing too!

    YT, haha, nek....

    Pete, ok, give me some times to dig them out :P

    Lee, haha koh loh!
    Thanks and you have a great weekend ya~

  15. Hmm...I wonder what nickname your hubby gives you now...hehehhe. I have many nicknames which my hubs gave me. Since Ashley came along, he forgot about me and only gave his princess nicknames...about 14 now :P

  16. Barbara, haha, my hubby doesnt give me any special nick names...
    Hmmm, is that a good or bad sign? LOL :P

  17. My mum used to call me by my nicknames and now, I will call my kids by their nicknames which is Tauke Xiang and Tauke Jie. Once I've them, I'm busy like a maid!

  18. mNhL, haha such a cute name!

  19. LOL at all the nicknames here.... I don't have any particular nickname back then, but now I have a lot.... =___="

    For example, my then-bf called me char bor (女人) and most of my uni-mates started calling me that. Well, my hubb still calls me that..... And he influences his girl to call me fei por, sigh....

  20. Nice to have nickname that people can make fun of - i'm called "super-chicken" in primary school coz i hop on one leg very fast & furious when played one leg LOL

    Happy holidays to you & family

  21. Your nicknames really don't reflect your real self. :) I can't recall any nicks..hehe.

  22. Yvonne, haha this name sounds familiar, my MIL also called my SIL 'cha bor po' =)
    fei por? Hey, you're not fei at all wert!

    Robinson, LOL.. no wonder you got that nick name!
    Thanks and happy holidays to you too!

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

Just a short note

Hello hello!
Was away for the past few days hence the silence here ;)
Went Bangkok with my bff and was so tired and exhausted! But enjoyed ourselves very much.. It's a pre birthday celebration trip for us as we are born in October...
Shall catch up with you guys soon!
p/s: SK and Wenn, I have received the gifts sent from you both, million thanks ya! ^^
