Pun of the day:
If you step onto a plane and recognize a friend of yours named Jack, don’t yell out Hi Jack!
After reading this, i was so compelled to blog about the same thing—-the names of the Star Idol Malaysia’s contestants.
I don’t really follow the show, i think it’s not even half as interesting as Cheddie’s video clips. On top of that, why watch it when i can make myself an iDoll too. Wahaha.
Anyway. About their names!! There’re 20 contestants and half of them have very, uhm, to put it nicely, unique, names.
A pretty girl who has a macho name.
I would have guessed that her chinese name is Wong Hui Kit or something that’s why everyone calls her Ah Kit. But no lo. Her chinese name is Zheng Zi Juan. Maybe she wants to be the female Akon! (So maybe her real name is actually Aliana Dalmation Gouda Tissot Parmesan Necklace La La La Burger Akit Teh).
A macho guy with a girly name.
According to his chinese name he should call himself Joey! But i think he finds Joey too sissy, so he opted Jimmy, but then he loves Gummy Bears, and wanted to name himself after them.
I’m your father.
To quote Sihan,
“Hi, SON, how are you doing in the school today? Did your behave yourself?”
A guy named Today (in Japanese).
Ohayo! Kyo wa gakko e ikimasuka? (Good morning! Are you going to school today?)
Kyo: “Oh, i’m not going to school today.”
Reporter: “Oh. Not today? What about Monday?”
Kyo: “Monday? Yea Monday is going.”
Who is going to school. Today.
Apparently if you don’t like days for your name, you can always opt for months. I know people who are called April, May, June, whose birthday falls on the month of their name. Nowadays maybe got February, December and October.
But i dunno got people so kiasu want to occupy two months in a row! (Or are they indecisive?)
“May or June better? I think Mayjune sounds cool!”
Yes yes it is. How about Novemberdecember for your future daughter?
There’re people who want everything in their name too!
A girl i met from Fasio Contest. Whom i think stands a very high chance of making her way into the finals of Star Idol too.
She got her name from Japanese rock band Glay. She shortened the four band members’ names, Takuro Kubo, Teruhiko Kobashi, Yoshihito Wayama and Hisashi Tonomura and formed HISHIKO. I dunno how she did that genius cut and paste but yea. Interesting name!
Another personal friend of mine.
She was the first girl who got eliminated from Star Idol.
Her name is actually Dorothy. I guess she called herself Doll because that’s more catchy? Plus i can’t deny that she’s really pretty like a doll. Ahh… no need to be an iDoll already.
I can only say that most of the contestants’ names are really, uhm, special. But they are all not even in the same zip code as funny as this. I mean, literally.
Reporter: “Hie Doll, where’s the other girl contestant?”
Doll: (who has a sharp nose, no pun intended): *sniff sniff* “Hmmm i smell Funny!”
Reporter: “Huh… you do?” *subconsciously backs off*
Doll: “Haha no la. Just kidding.”
Reporter: “Haha that’s funny.”
Doll: “Huh really? Where?”
Ok enough of making fun of other people. Before you bash me kao kao and want me to realize that my name is not exactly the best but just as lame/cheesy/funny to the max, read this first. I have already made fun of mine. Cheese you very much.
‘Monday’ hahahahahaha. What a punce.
I din like tis name,MayJune.So weird… -__-|||
No offence 2 her her fans.
Sorry,spelling mistake.Juz woke up,still with small eyes. -_-
HAHAHAH ringo you’re so funny! I hate reality shows. Yea and i think their names are really lame. I mean c’mon, who on earth will call himself MONDAY? And Doll? uh, no offense. Duh.
I see a lot of play on the contestant’s chinese names. Mayjune’s name in chinese is “Mei Jun”. Twist that around a bit and you get MayJune. The first character of Son’s name in chinese is “Sun1” in pinyin and thus you get Son. Funny’s chinese name is “li fen”, read that backwards and it’s pretty much “funny”. The rest, eh those cannot be explained away!
Wow,love the pun of the day!”Hi Jack!” 🙂
MayJune.. so funny.. What a name.~
whats wrong with chinese names? aiyoh…ppl with bombastic names……….sigh…….
Monday, Mayjune, Son, Today etc etc are not as bad as the once i encountered. I went to Hong Kong Disneyland, and there was this staff called ‘ Bowl Bo ‘. I went to eat at Eric’s Hot and there was this waiter called ‘ Milk ‘. And my aunt (who lives in Hong Kong) has friends named ‘ Panda ‘ and ‘ Garfield ‘. My mom has a studymate called ‘Skash’. Bad enough?
Some of them have actually gotten their names rite after they were selected(top 20),as sms code.
oh talking about names too, sometimes i come across my customers from China, with names like Wisdom, Wolf, Blackie, Robot, even Pretty…as well.
Whats wrong with these people, not all English words, can be use as English names..
lol! hilarious names! they’re just asking to be made fun of! 😛
This post got me… got me reallllll bad hahahahahaha!!!!! what in the world is happening? dont they all have some sense of names? and what is this japanese wannabe? chinese ppl putting on japanese name? wanna have an oriental feel or something? i dont watch this show and i think… i am not missing anything.
talk about having a funny name… someone really have funny as name!
Actually Kyo is a Japanese name. The kanji is 京.
OMG funny name haha! Love your puns too. I think Jummy is the weirdest la. Where got name like that one.
my new name will be thunder umbrella then.
i can beat all of them, name wise.
I really like kyo and i think his name is cool!
Kyo is cute!He can really act!N he has a lot of fans,especially those young gals(in 2ndary sch).
Ying bin: i also like monday but he’s eliminated sigh. Who you like the most?
Huh?Since when Monday is eliminated?He is still in the top 8 ler.
I’m Hishiko’s best fren,so my vote goes 2 Hishiko!Yay! 🙂

Lol,interesting!There r only 4 guys(Monday,Ivan,Kyo & Alex) n 4 gals(Hishiko,MJ,MayJune & Faye) left.
why so many ppl vote faye? she is like ella. haha
Maybe she has lots of S.H.E’s Ella’s fans,lol!I know her,she’s funny!NO,not tat Funny! :p
HAHA!!! omg, the Monday dude was the funniest of all~ XD
I love this entry! Hillarious!!! wahhahaha. Funny is really funny.
Good one Cheesie!
mayjune, this name… irritates me the most… (not the person eh)!
wow retarded names and some of the guys looked gay. Are these people so full of themselves or just ashamed of their given names?
Where’s Tuesday? Wednesday? Thursday? Friday? Saturday? Sunday?
I wonder why he chose Monday as Mondays are the saddest day for all… Friday and Saturday is more funky wut… duh…
this is darn funny, make me laugh like siao! oh ya, good pun !
Ying Bin, you and Hishiko from TAR college right? All these while I’ve been thinking if you’re the Ying Bin… with Hishiko’s name now I’m sure d 🙂
people these days are really lack of ideas on names… coming out with some mayjune name.. and akit… my goodness…
“If I’m the Ying Bin?”
Wow!N yes,I’m the Ying Bin,hehe!R u from TARC as well? 🙂
dlim: Yes,some of them r juz sms code,like Son,his name is Jason.
This is hilarious!! How come they allow such idiotic names to be up on the show?? They are really making fun of themselves…
my. the oddities of names seems to be the theme in this month’s blogosphere! how bout any weird/funny mandarin names u’ve come across?
okayyyyy….. *rolls eyes*
Funny: You’re the iDoll without an “i” ~!
Doll: Oh yea I am half blind. You’re Funny.
Funny: 666!!! Am I?! Am I that funny? 10q 10q~~
Doll: Yea rite, you’re funny.
Funny: Yea, I am Funny.
Talking about names… I have sumthin to ask Ying Bin Sousa.
Are you a muslim? Ying… Bin Sousa ? 😛
LOL!No,my name is Ying Bin,a chinese gal.Sousa is a Portuguese surname! 🙂
Huh Ying Bin, you are half portugese?
Ah~ i thought you’re a guy~!
The pronunciation of Sousa is suza. 🙂
I wish(bout being a portuguese,not bout being a guy,lol)!Not my surname,it’s the last name of the guy I fall in love with,haha!He’s a half portuguese & half italian! 🙂
Ying bin, So you wish to marry him? Haha. But thats very sweet!

Y Bin Sousa?I’m gonna give him an English name lar!!!My Mr. Sousa is a Christian ler. -_-|||
chosen the wrong name eh~~~ mayjune and son really uncommon
if Son has a baby boy, will his name be Grandson?
Stranger: “Who are you?”
Son: “Harlow, I am my father’s Son”
Grandson: “HEllo, I am Son’s son!” *pengsan*
huh?… looks like i hv to change my nick -_-lll
love your witty sarcasm. Great post. 🙂
pL: Yea i noticed that too. 🙂
mypink &Selina: Really got such name ah!!!666 lolwtc. My friend Porkie told me he once saw this white guy with a name tag that spells Cheesemaster or something. Is it, Porkie?
Ying Bin: Yea, the sms code thing. Maybe that’s how Dorothy shortened her name. But some are still quite long what. Like, Mayjune -_- I thought its for convenience.
AvatarStormBringer: yeap i think they have more than one kanji for that. Nowadays they can choose whatever kanji they want and pronounce however they want. 🙂
Derrick: Payayababana is weird enough.
Ivy:Maybe Monday is his off day wahahah!
Yung: There’s this Super Star final contestant called Orange what. How bout that.
Jun: Got meh? Where? SHow me! Oh i think i heard of this dentist named Wing Gum. Surname is Chew.

I laughed out loud at your pun of the day.
aiyo.why can’t they just have more normal names like sharon or mandy..
why would someone actually call themselves funny 😛 hehe
Good one!! :p

The poor things are trying so hard to be unique… :/

McAfee has detected a potential phishing Web site.

Can you fix the problem please? >.
Cute Dorothy… =)

Heh..the Miss.Fasio shot makes it look like you are the winner not Hishiko. I wonder if the photographer was trying to imply something? 😉
Haha,Porkie is thinking too much.There was still a winner(1st runner up) named Shakila standing next 2 Hishiko. 🙂
Hahaha..no lah, not thinking too much! I know the photographer did it on purpose..lalalalala…hehehe… 😉
Hmm. I’ve no idea. Maybe there’s something wrong with my security software on my comp. Sowrie~
Anyways, love reading your blog. Always brighten up my day 😉
