So I was talking to the mister on LINE about registering for the upcoming presidential election next month…
Him: My name is registered. What’s your passport number?
Him: Your name is not in!
Me: Oh, I had just registered a couple of minutes ago actually. I think my name was not in the list cos I’ve just renewed my passport
Him: Oo.. haha I see. The list is a PDF so it’s offline
Me: Yea, I saw it too just now. How many Pelix Susanto are there?
(I, and some of our friends, like to call him Pelix instead of Felix)
Him: Pelix? Felix you mean?
Me: I call you Pelix ma. Hahahahaha
Him: Cos my name in my NPWP card (Nomor Penduduk Wajib Pajak – Taxation Identification Number for Indonesians) was written as “Pelix” last time
Him: Then they asked me to change it
Him: The worst one was when I went to a salon last time. The staff was asking for my name… Then I replied. She didn’t seem to get it, then I repeated for another 3 times and she finally wrote it on the paper. Then I glanced at it…
She wrote my name as “Polip” (“Polyp” in Indonesian)
(I replied him 3 minutes later…)
OMG I’M LAUGHING SO HARD
Couldn’t reply you right away just now cos I was laughing!!
Me: Polip Susanto!
