Bukan tidak ingat, tapi lupa!
i have problems in remembering names. Especially when i came across the annual relative gathering every year.
It is a catastropic nuclear explosion when i have to call some of them by their name, worst, their real name.
i have relatively small problem remembering the names of elders, my aunts, uncles and cousins.
But, when it came to the younger generation of the family tree, i will totally sucked up.
So, there are the children gather around me to play, to share story and stuff.
Then i started to call them by their nicknames.
" How are you doing Kereb?"
" I'm not him, I'm Lengkriw."
"Hey, Mutif, don't smack her head!"
*from the distance* "I'm silently watching the TV la over here."
*Mutif 'duplicate' successfully run away after beating her sister*
"Well Hoklem, tell my you hobby."
*Everyone in the house* "She is not Hoklem!"
Some time i just pick the wild card and use it wildly,
I tried every single name that i remember that day, which finally annoys everyone in the house,
" Still, SHE IS NOT HOKLEM!"
Actually, i have worst problem.
i don't even remembered that they are existed. The problem was, i leave home for 6 months and sometimes more and when i got back hometown, they are already walks and runs. i've never seen them as a baby, i mean a real young baby.
I have to admit. These are some of my irresistible question:
"Who's your parents"
"Who's your siblings"
"Where do you live"
"Is Hoklem your sister?"
I am a total stranger!
