a VERY important post... (vice versa)

while waiting for my pics to be uploaded by the slow photobucket.com, I'm gonna write something VERY important here...


LOL


One of the thing that I really love is meeting new people...
I love meeting new ppl in every kinds of occasion and situation.
whether it's in a funeral, or in a bday party, or just a casual meeting in my campus... or maybe, a meeting in the cyber world..
whether it's my bad hair day, or it's my best day ever coz my family is around...
I don't really care...
I like meeting new ppl in any case...


whether or not the new ppl that I meet are good, it's totally a different case...
but the meeting thing is the precious moment...


What I love the most is ppl reaction when they just found out about my name...
but there's a different reaction b/w Indonesians' reactions and non-Indonesians' reaction... I'll show u...


the usual reaction comes from Indonesian...

me: "Alien..." *shove my right hand out, in order to shake their hands*

the new person that I just met (TNPTIJM): "Alien???" *he/she usually looks confused and hesitates to shake my right hand*

me: "yup! my name's alien..." *smile*

TNPTIJM: "Alien...? as in alien workshop??? alien with the UFO?" *looks even more confused*

me: "yeah... Alien, as spelled in alien with the UFO..."

TNPTIJM: *starts to smile* "are you coming from mars or something?"

me: "I've lived for almost 20 years and that is the most boring question that ppl have asked me..." *show boredom"

TNPTIJM: "sorry... I just had to say it... ur name's really unique..."

me: "thanks... what's ur name again?"


so, that is the usual reaction comes from Indonesians...
remember the "are you coming from Mars?" part, coz it might be handy when u meet me!


this is the usual reaction that comes from non-Indonesians...
let's starts off with the western people reaction...

me: "my name's alien..." *in Bahasa Indonesia pronounciation*

TPTIJM: "pardon me?"

me: "my name's alien..." *in Bahasa Indonesia pronounciation*

TPTIJM: "what's your name? sorry..." *gets closer to me*

me: "alien.." *in Bahasa Indonesia pronounciation*

TPTIJM: "uh-ly-an????"

me: "it's alien..." *in Bahasa Indonesia pronounciation*

TPTIJM: "aih-lie-yen?" *almost gives up*

me: "it's alien..." *in English pronounciation plus a tired face* "alien,

as in alien with the UFO..."

TPTIJM: "ah... I see..." *nods, most of the time* "did ur parents see any UFO when ur mom was pregnant?"

me: *look at him at disbelief*


and last, this is the usual reaction that comes from non-Indonesians who are still from Asia...

me: "my name's alien..."

TPTIJM: "my name's bla-bla-bla..."

we shake hands... and that's the end of it...
other asians are usually the only ppl who can accept my name as it is...
prbably it's becoz their name is really hard to pronounce too...
for example, one of my Thai friends name is Jariyamart Chawandit...
so I guess their names are weird enough and they just won't question about the weirdness of my name.


so, even though the reaction from the new ppl that i just meet is basically the same, I just love meeting new ppl and go over their reaction again and again....


I'm just being really weird...



p.s. my photobucket thingie's done!
