When I was a child, I've always wish for an English name. Most of my friends have one, and people remember them easily. Whenever I tell newly known people my given name, they will not be able to pronounce it correctly, what more to remember it! I was searching for a unique one and up till today, I have not found anything that I like. hahaha

I was also searching for a unique English name for both my kids and recently, I've settled with Selina for XJ but have not found anything that I like for YX yet. Why Selina ?

Picture was taken in Nov 2011. Look at how she posed !
XJ is a little girl who loves to wear beautiful cloths and have her hair tied up beautifully. She enjoyed taking photos and pose for me. We always labelled her as 爱美 (Love to be beautiful). That reminds me of the Taiwanese group S.H.E (Selina, Hebe, Ella) whereby Selina is those 爱美 type too !

beautiful bride. It was very noisy and XJ shuts her ears.
Besides, Selina always dream to be a beautiful bride. Same goes to XJ, she loves the bride and told me she wanted to be a bride herself. I've blog about this over here.

Last week when we were in a shopping mall in KL, there was a bridal show going on and XJ requested to take photo with the bride. She loves their gown !

Friendly bride who bended down to match XJ's height.
XJ loves this name too and enjoyed being called as Selina. I goggled and found the name - 'Selina' means 'Moon' in Greek.

YX who was so eager to have an English name quickly told me to call him Daniel. That was because one of my cousin's son who was quite close to YX was named Daniel. LOL ! Hmm.......I told him to hold on first and let me find something more suitable for him. Any suggestion, anyone ?
