17.02.2012 | 靚仔靚女

[Volume 7 Issue 2, #1327]
上個星期提到點樣想辦法記住別人個名, 不過有好時候突然有緣喺某些場合撞到, 一時三刻都真係會醒唔起對方姓甚名誰.. 為了避免尷尬嘅最好方法, 就係懶熟懶熱情咁行埋去作狀握手搭膊頭, 然後一句「靚仔」(如果對方係男性)或「靚女」(如果對方係女性)稱呼.. 呢兩個稱呼好universal, 萬試萬靈架!! 如果你發現我咁樣稱呼你, 你大概知道咩事啦, 呵呵~~ :p
i mentioned about trying to remember names last week, but there are times when you just bump into someone at some occasion, and it's quite impossible to recall his/her name instantly.. the best thing to do in order not to get into awkwardness, go forward and pretend to be very friendly, try to shake hands or tap on the shoulders, then say "hey bro!!" (if he is a guy) or "hey pretty!!" (if she is a lady) to address.. i find these terms very universal and works everywhere!! so if you notice i address you this way one day, well you know what happened, hehe~~ :p

  11. So what will you call me, if you forgot my name SK? Sis? Auntie? hihi

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Better don't call me, if SK couldn't find the appropriate addressing. Just say, "Hi" will do.

      Delete
    2. Example: Hi! How you doing? XD

      Delete
    3. Yeah!! That's a good one :P

      Delete
    4. Yes. Like that lar...

      Or if meet soemwhere, ask generic question
      1. Shopping?
      2. Where are you working now?
      3. You alone ah? Meeting someone?

      That's usually my line. But my favourite one is, pretending not to see unless people say hi to me first! So unfriendly kan?

      Don't ask about BF, kids, parents. xD

      Delete
    5. @lina Wow got strategy to kao lui here! Must write down as a note lol

      Delete
    6. LOL

      Because this actually happen to me a lot. I don't know why but I always meet people who are very friendly to me, know my name etc but I cannot remember who they are/their names! I'm soooooo bad!

      Delete
    7. Lina, you 'see through" the person?? They probably think you are snobbish, unfriendly comes second :p

      Delete
  12. If I forgot, I just compensate being super friendly and try not have conversation that needs his/her name come out.

    Otherwise, I'll call you "sayang" ;p

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hahaha, yeah, act as if I know his/her name but carefully avoid the names part.... not going to ask further about his gf /wife / mother / father / sister / brother 's condition.

      Later the questions back fired me, especially the NAME issue...

      Delete
    2. lol Call people Sayang will be dam wrong ok! That 1 is call your beloved le XD

      Delete
    3. I don't call "sayang". I got more "manja" name for him. ;p

      That's why can use "sayang", "darling" and "dear" freely. LOL

      Delete
    4. fuiyoh XD *bulu tangan sudah tegak*

      Delete
  13. So if anyone here got called "sayang" or "dear" by me - you should understand that I remember your face but I couldn't remember your name. xD

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Luckily you made it clear here.... sayang / dear - means you've forgotten the names.

      Abuden I thought you have many lovers out there :p ♪♪ Sayang here, sayang there, sayang everywhere....♫

      Delete
    2. call me dear I will be misunderstood and it will be so wrong XD awkward moment lol

      Delete
    3. I have dealings with people in the service & hospitality sector. They all call everyone sayang one. So rub off on me. ;0

      Delete
    4. Ah, calling sayang sounds sooo dear to that person. It's a manja calling, kekeke! Ahem, if I wanted to use sayang, I think I'll be bias.

      Hansem one will sure get, "Sayang, how are you today?"

      Non-hansem, "How are you?" Short and sweet.

  26. Hi brudder!!! At one time, among the local Malays here, everybody's Jack... Imagine on a plane and one of them sees someone he knows and he greets, "HI, JACK!!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  27. ahaha i'm doing the same thing... or sometimes.. if she smiles at me as if we knew each other.. i will just return the smile back even though i am not so familiar with her or him hehe

    ReplyDelete
  28. i think it is much better to greet them bnack rather than ignoring them or else they will think you as a snobby one hehe

    ReplyDelete
  29. after all, i think they will do the same way if you try to greet someone and he's not that familiar at you... right? hehe...

    ReplyDelete
  30. oh no SK... i feel so bad of having this long time blog hopping hiatus... It's my Rest day til Sunday so i am grabbing this opportunity to catch things up.. so sorry again

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have been trying to comment on this post but unsuccessful. Haiya, I remember faces better than names. So when someone familiar address me and I forgot their name, I will say, "You are Who ar?" hahaha, then they will say who they are. I guess they will give slack to an old lady like me! hehe

    ReplyDelete
  33. My memory is one of the best amongst school mates. I remember everyone's names easily.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I only have problems to remember the names of the many suppliers and interview candidates who met me. Well not my kawan mah but they remember my surname, so that made me paiseh lo...

    ReplyDelete
  35. So when caught is this susah situation, I will ask them what they were doing there.....trying to corner them into giving hints where I met them...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Many times they too could not recall where we met although they remembered my name well.

    ReplyDelete
  37. As a kind courtesy I would give them my name card and they will exchange theirs or give their contact number....easy la to dig info like this.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have been in sales and marketing line...very seasoned to utter fake sweet words! Ha ha...
