my name is slowly disappeaRing

February 6, 2009 in Eccentric Cheesiesm

is my MSN nick (and this is a pointless post).

This is like the, spur of the moment kind of thing. Something you feel like doing but dunno why kind of thing.

I think i am slowly melting away.


This is an official announcement. Please do not call me Ringo anymore.


My name has melted to Ring. Or Rin. I can’t decide. Seems like the shorter the better.

Because i got sick of explaining my name to people. Especially to Japanese people.

(Once and for all, please do not ask me this again) In Japanese Ringo means apple. TK calls me Ring because he prefers my real name, which ends with “Ling”. And you know the missing pronounciation of L in Japanese so everything with L becomes R. Hence the name Ring. Then again in Japanese character there’s no such thing as a G ending so it’s literally Rin in writing. りん。Geddit? (Ok nvm.)

So yea. I like Rin very much but i have trouble pronouncing it. Is it reen? Or rin as in “sharing” and “caring” without the G? But i think would like people to pronounce it the Japanese way, which is, a cross between “Ling” and “Ring”. Diffiucult leh. But you must learn!

So please call me Cheesie/Ring/Rin in the future. 

Eh hold on. I might change my mind. I might further reduce the letters and i might be Ri in the future (Like Ok So-ri), but it’s kinda funny. Does it sound better as ree , or rye?

Oli said,

Your name will slowly disappear until only *R* is left

Oh it is so funny. It’s an inside joke. Ok la i’ll see if i can explain the insidejokeness successfully. It’s liddis one. On MSN right my favorite emoticon is the roll eye yellow man. rolleye0001.gif I use it so often (almost abusively) Oli got supper annoyed so he disabled emoticon on his MSN so whenever i roll eye him it won’t show up. So then i replaced it with typing *R*.  And Oli is very mean.


Anyway my friends are very concerned about my melting name. They said, “i’d start getting worried if your nick changed to “disappearRin”  and  “we’re gnna make sure you don’t lose your name “. You know like, in Spirited Away, Chihiro lost her name (along with her childhood memory) and became “Sen”. In American Gods too, Shadow gave his real name away when he walked the underworld path to death.

Then again, Ring Tan sounds like Zero. Then then again, Ling Dan never got zero. He freaking beat Lee Chong Wei and won a freaking gold olympics medal.

Anyway, say hi to Ring/Rin.


(I’m serious)



(Until i change my mind)

    If your name keep getting shorter and shorter, why not you prolong it? then it takes longer time for it to disappear. Right? Ringosaurous. Ringoroundandround. Ringringwhosthere.

  36. Chea Yee says:

    Heh… Ya… Ringo does mean apple in japanese….

    I only passed by Osaka on train and catch a ferry back to Busan…. didn’t actually manage to travel around there.

    Sometimes our perspective change when we travel to a different country, and realise that others (who are almost similar to us) have a different look on things which we might have thought was normal.

    Even Valentine’s Day is different in Korea… I like the idea of a Chocolate Day, White Chocolate Day, and Black Day. takes the pressure off from what normal Valentines’ Day here in Malaysia or Australia is like.
