I've been thinking. And since my thoughts come out in short spurts (Heh!), here's a short... erm... observation for your consideration.
If you go to any small town in Malaysia, you are bound to find a Chinese gangster, along or politician named Jimmy. Or Alex. Any small town. Come to think of it, any big city as well. And in their company, you'll also find a Shireen or two. And out of every five Shireens, two will spell their own name wrong. So, remember, if you don't pay your dues, Jimmy's gonna getcha! And if he can't make it, Alex will show.
Also about town, you'll find a whole load of Malay guys who introduce themselves as Remy, as if it were a short-form of their given names. Never mind if their mothers named them Zainuddin. You never call them Zain or Udin, or even Din. It's Remy. Or if they were a little on the meaty side, then it's Bob. And with every order of a Bob or a Remy, you're almost certain to get a girl named Baby. Or Gee.
Out here in the city, you'll find a whole bunch of Indian brothers named G. Yes, just the alphabet. Not to be confused with Gee. And it's a popular alphabet, that G, which is usually a short-form for Gunasekaran or Ganesan. In fact it's so popular that even Perumal or Shanker call themselves G. For some reason, P and S just never quite took off.
Know any of these guys? :)
